The synthpop band Future Islands air the first official video ‘Ran‘ from their upcoming album ‘The Far Field‘ (4AD, April 7th 2017), having last month released it on audio format, along with the initial album announcement.

For the selection of the 12 new songs Future islands had been testing them for almost a year, through secret lives with fake names. The most anticipated song of the upcoming album is ‘Shadows‘, a collaboration with Blondie‘s Debbie Harry.  The new official video was filmed by the Baltimore based painter, comic artist and videographer Albert Birney, featuring frontman Samuel T. Herring getting out of the jam room while the rest of the band is performing and starts running in Baltimore and Maryland’s countryside.
