Bastille link with Blur guitarist Graham Coxon on their new single.
The project's third album 'Doom Days' ended their opening trilogy, a three-album cycle that has pushed the band to stardom.
New single 'WHAT YOU GONNA DO???' is the start of a new phase, with Bastille finishing material and getting it out as soon as possible.
“This next phase feels like a new beginning. It’s about completely tearing up our process, being spontaneous and starting again,” Dan states. “We’re just really excited by the new songs. I think we’re making some of the best music we’ve ever made. We want to put it out now and not wait for the whole album to be done before anyone starts to hear it. This is about where we are now and hearing us in real-time…”
Graham Coxon features on the new release, adding extra guitar and vocals. Recorded and finished recently, there's a real immediacy to the single, as Dan comments:
“We finished the song and it felt urgent. We didn’t want to sit on it.”
