Future Islands Return with "For Sure"
It's their first new song in three years
Published Jul 08, 2020Future Islands are back with a new single — their first in three years — titled "For Sure."
Written and recorded in the band's hometown of Baltimore back in 2018, the song arrives today with the vocal contributions of Jenn Wasner of Wye Oak.
"'For Sure' is a song about love and trust, because one cannot exist without the other," the band elaborated in a statement. "It's a summer song, where love is the sea, and trust is giving us the courage to jump. And love is waiting. Trust is waiting. It's a song about opened doors and closed ones. Ones that open into the world and ones that never close."
Future Islands have also shared the single's accompanying Sam Mason-directed video, which you can watch below.
Future Islands have not yet announced plans for a new record. Their latest album was 2017's The Far Field.
