Future Islands have announced a new album. On January 26, the group will release People Who Aren’t There Anymore via 4AD. Today they’ve released the new single “The Tower,” which you can check out below via its new video directed by Jonathan Van Tulleken. It follows a series of other recent singles, “King of Sweden,” “Deep in the Night,” and “Peach,” all of which appear on the album.

Van Tulleken said of the video in a statement, “Anyone who’s seen Sam on stage shape shift with his whole body and voice from heart wrenchingly tender to fantastically ferocious knows that he is a truly, magnetic, performer. This was no small reason why he was cast for a role in The Changeling where he plays a complex character who appears to be one thing whilst actually another. It was a role that would be no easy task for even the most seasoned actor but Sam, applying all his stage craft, charisma, smarts and natural empathy, absolutely nailed it producing a riveting performance. I loved working with someone who came to acting via this persona they had built in their music. To then get to collaborate on a music video with the band was a delight especially one which explores that duality of light and dark literally and metaphorically. Finding that same captivating, haunting, performance but this time with the track as script.”

Future Islands’ last album was 2020’s As Long As You Are. This year, Samuel Herring appeared on both Algiers’ SHOOK and billy woods and Kenny Segal’s Maps.
