Future Islands Announce New Record, Release Tracklist
Future Islands will release their third album, On the Water, on Oct. 10 via Thrill Jockey. The synth-pop trio spent March of this year living and recording in their home state of North Carolina, in Elizabeth City. Naturally, the town is located on the banks of a river and is just a short drive from the beach, locales that the band used to make watery field recordings and record vocal takes with the ocean’s waves crashing in the background.
Featured contributors include Wye Oak’s Jenn Wasner, who provides vocals on “The Great Fire”, and Double Dagger’s Denny Bowen, who added live drumming and additional percussion. The 11-song tracklist, which includes the recently released “Before the Bridge,”is below.
