Future Islands - Two New Tracks, Letterman Performance
Future Islands : Two New Tracks, Letterman Performance
29th April 2015

After returning to the Late Show with David Letterman last night, Future Islands have officially released two new tracks in the shape of 'The Chase' and 'Haunted By You'.

Last March the Baltimore trio made their groundbreaking network television debut on Letterman, and yesterday evening they debuted new single 'The Chase' live on the show, after being personally invited back to mark one of David Letterman's final shows before his retirement.  

The track is released today as a double AA side with another unheard song 'Haunted By You', which the band first performed at their recent sold-out UK shows.  Both tracks are available to buy on iTunes here, and stream on Spotify here, and you can also watch the respective YouTube videos below, along with last night's live footage from Letterman.

'The Chase' and 'Haunted By You' will be released as a limited 7" single on 30th June, which you can pre-order here.

A live version of 'The Chase' was recently recorded straight to vinyl at Abbey Road Studios, as part of Record Store Day 2015.  6Music premiered the live version here, along with interviews with the band and studio engineers, whilst the one-off pressing was raffled at Seismic Records in Leamington Spa, with proceeds going to the Myton Hospices charity.
