I Twittered about the possiblity of a new Foals record a few weeks ago, but the boys from Oxford just made it official via their MySpace blog last Monday. Total Life Forever, the new album from Foals will hit the shelves on May 10, 2010 in the UK, with the first single entitled “The Orient” arriving on May 3, 2010. Presumably, the new LP will drop on this side of the pond on May 11, 2010 via Sub Pop (and the single a week earlier I’m guessing). I’ll let you know more about that when I find out. For now, you can watch a video for “Spanish Sahara” on the Foals website (or YouTube if you prefer) and you can receive the Mount Kimbie remix of “Spanish Sahara” by entering your email address over here.
