A little update from the beloved Foals and their upcoming second album Total Life Forever: as TLOBF brought to our attention today, the band has a little website called www.totallifeforever.co.uk, where they present sneak previews (up to four lines from a song lyrics plus a short audio sample) of each of the ten new songs from the album to be released on May 10 via Transgressive Records. But you’ll first have to master a little puzzle game reminding of these ancient Maya/Egyptian circle “computers” from India Jones & co to gain access to the previews.
Most of the decet was produced by Luke Smith in Gothenborg’s Svenska Grammofon Studio. See a photo from the studio workings below:
