British rock band Foals have released their fourth studio album, What Went Down, via Transgressive Records. The 10 track album was produced by James Ford and recorded at La Fabrique studios in France.
In an interview with NME, frontman Yannis Philippaki described his lyrical writing process for What Went Down:
I just wanted to strip the layers of myself away, have the reptilian part of my brain speak directly and not analyse or censor it. I wanted to tap into my inner madman and feel like I was channeling some sort of fevered creature. I wanted to relish the mania, and what ended up happening – looking back at certain passages in some songs – is pretty intense in a way that I wouldn't have ever been able to plan.
