My love for Future Islands is well known and not long after delivering the best concert of the year, they've now gifted us a new single entitled 'The Chase'. Performing the track for its television debut, there was no better place than to return to David Letterman's Late Show, where the band first made their mark just last year.
Before commencing his renowned dancing, Frontman Samuel T. Herring took a moment to dwell on the riots that the band's home city have been enduring this past week, stating:
"This song is gonna go out to the people of Baltimore. Let us not discount their voices—or the voices of all the people in the cities that we live and love."
As Herring goes on to sing "Was it love, or love of the chase?", the track sounds perfectly at home alongside other tracks from the band's last album Singles, however it's actually a non album track (for now at least). The B-Side 'Haunted By You' can be heard below.
