Bastille is reflecting on 2021 and looking ahead to the New Year, which will include a new album “and a whole lot more.” The band shared a letter to fans on social media, wishing everyone: “Happy New Year you wonderful lot! 🔈” Bastille wrote, in part:

“Thank you, as always, for all the support throughout this weird old year… We can’t wait to share the album (and a whole lot more) with you next year, and to see loads of you in real life at some actual gigs! For now, stay safe, shut off the lights, and have amazing nights. Here’s to 2022.”

The letter is signed “loads of love” from Dan Smith, Chris “Woody” Wood, Kyle Simmons and Will Farquarson. Read the full New Year’s letter Bastille shared with fans here:

Over the summer, Bastille seemingly teased a new era with a cryptic social media post. The eight-second clip showed only a triangle before displaying the phrase: “YOU DON’T PREDICT THE FUTURE. YOU IMAGINE IT.”

One of the first new songs from Bastille was “Thelma + Louise,” which premiered during YUNGBLUD's BBC Radio 1 takeover. Smith said at the time: “It’s this iconic feminist film about freedom, escapism, independence and escaping the worries and problems of life. I wanted to write a love letter to that film — a love letter to feminism, escapism and throwing off the shackles of a life that you may be frustrated by.” Bastille finally announced the band’s fourth album, Give Me The Future, in October. At that time, the band released “No Bad Days,” the next single following “Thelma + Louise” and “Distorted Light Beam.”

“I’m just observing the truly weird times we’re living in and having fun responding to it through these songs,” Smith previously said. “As the final track 'Who Knows What the Future Holds… Don’t Matter If I Got You' says, this is happening, whether we like it or not. Finding happiness in the moment is surely the aim, whether it’s in the real or virtual world.”
