Foals are doing their part to help stop the spread of COVID-19 aka the Coronavirus by sharing a PSA lyric video for "Wash Off." The clip shows a loop of someone following standard medical procedure for hand washing, with lyrics like "Keep on trying/ To wash it off/ Go wash it off" flashing on the bottom of the screen.
The track is featured on the band's latest album, Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 2, which came out in October. Sing along with "Wash Off" and learn how to effectively scrub your hands for a full 20 seconds in the educational lyric video below.
Foals plan to embark on a co-headlining North American tour with Local Natives this spring; however, the Coronavirus' rapid spread across the world has caused bands like Green Day, YUNGBLUD, and more to postpone tour dates, and in some cases cancel them altogether. Large festivals like SXSW have also been canceled, and Coachella was rescheduled to October.
