    Future Islands have released a new song, “Calliope”, their first bit of original music since the release of last year’s The Far Field. The track was recorded during the aforementioned albums sessions, and arrives courtesy of Adult Swim’s Single Program.

    “This flickering hope/is a slippery slope” begins the slick, propulsive track, which builds to an enticing chorus before collapsing into a cathartic, synth-laden denouement. Listen to it below.

    No stranger to the stage, Future Islands will spend the summer touring the world and hitting up a slew of festivals after a 2017 that saw them bringing their vibrant, kinetic live show to every inch of the US. See the band’s full tour itinerary below.
