Give Me The Future is the fourth studio album by British indie pop band Bastille, released in February 2022 via Virgin EMI.

Bastille (BΔSTILLE) formed in 2010, initially as a solo project by Dan Smith (lead vocals, keyboards, guitars), and expanded to include Kyle Simmons (keyboards), Will Farquarson (bass, guitars) and Chris "Woody" Wood (drums).

Give Me The Future is a tribute to humanity in a tech age and reflects on the strangeness of living through times that can feel like science fiction. Exploring both the opportunities of new technology and the dark side of lives lived online, it’s as playful and fun as it is thought-provoking, as dystopian as it is dancefloor-friendly, and as electronic as Bastille have ever been.

Eerily, songwriter Dan Smith came up with the idea pre-pandemic. The album was already underway and the band on hiatus from touring when the world shut down, forcing interaction solely through screens.

“Working on these songs in such an apocalyptic period, with everyone stuck at home, glued to screens, fed into the feeling that what is real and what is not has become pretty difficult to discern sometimes,” says Dan. “We’re in the age of deep fake, fake news and lying world leaders. But online, you can be anyone. What that does to our sense of self and to our relationships is huge and it’s fascinating.”

Give Me The Future takes us into a sci-fi wonderland free from restrictions – each song a different danceable dreamscape, a place where you can travel back and forward in time to be anyone, do anything and embrace a new wave of technology which enables us to get lost inside our imagination. The album is laced with references to the world of science fiction film and literature, video games and VR.

The album was preceded by the singles "Distorted Light Beam", "Thelma + Louise" and "Give Me the Future” and subsequently announced alongside the release of the fourth single "No Bad Days", and "Shut Off the Lights"

This album is on black vinyl with a printed booklet, pressed in Europe via Virgin EMI Records.
