morning jam: FOALS “What Went Down”

17 Jun


It’s Wednesday, and sometimes, half way through the week, you need something to pump up your morning. Like the biggest cup of espresso you’re local coffee shop will legally let you have, Foals new single “What Went Down” will kick your day into high gear.

“What Went Down” is the title track and first single from Foals upcoming new album available for pre-order now here. The new album is set to release in stores on August 28th.

After hearing this new single, I can’t wait to get my hands on the new album, and the ultimate dance workout at their live shows. Here’s hoping Foals come back to the US soon for a headlining tour! We desparately need them back in Philly to play a headlining show (and not a giant stadium for 20 minutes for a radio station that doesn’t even play their music). It’s been way to long, and seeing Foals live is an absolute must for all fans. This band exudes so much energy live it could light the city for three months. Listen to the track below and pre-order the album What Went Down here!
