Foals are set to release their fifth studio album in 2019, it has been revealed.
The Oxford group just inked a new record deal, signing worldwide to Warner/Chappell and Transgressive Publishing.
Work on their fifth album is seemingly under way, with Music Week reporting that the new deal covers their catalogue and “their fifth album, which is due out next year.”
Warner/Chappell Music UK MD Mike Smith commented:
“They’re without doubt one of the most forward-thinking and constantly innovating rock bands to have emerged in the past ten years. They never fail to release thrilling music and it is a huge privilege for Warner/Chappell to be able to work with their remarkable catalogue and future recordings.”
Foals have hinted previously that they are ready to go into the studio, with a flurry of live dates already confirmed for 2019. As a side project, frontman Yannis Phillipakis also launched a new live music venture, a night based around improvisation and one-off performances in Peckham.
