Continuing a hugely successful year for Future Islands, today the band are both premiering their five-track 4AD Session and announcing extra shows in Boston, New York and Philadelphia due to demand.
Filmed in London and directed by Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard - the duo behind many a past 4AD Session and more recently, the acclaimed Nick Cave documentary 20,000 Days On Earth - Future Islands have enlisted a string quartet and brass section for their Session, performing five album cuts - 'Sun In The Morning', 'Doves', 'Seasons (Waiting On You)', 'Light House' and 'A Song For Our Grandfathers'. You can watch on the band's YouTube channel here or in the player below.
