Foals have released a video for “Black Bull,” the first glimpse at their sequel to their March album, Everything Not Saved Will be Lost—Part 1.
The Niall O’Brien-directed clip features slow-motion scenes of—you guessed it—a black bull charging towards a wall of flowers, intercut with strobing shots of the band rocking out to the song on stage. “I got to rip up the road / I got two nights in a row / Oh, we gon’ put on a show / With the black bull in tow,” frontman Yannis Philippakis sings on the opening verse.
“Part 2 is a heavier listen, the guitars are more emphasised and there’s some big riffs on it,” Philippakis told NME. “It’s a rock record and it definitely carries on the narrative from Part 1. Part 1 ended with a lot of fire and destructive imagery, Part 2 is trying to respond to that: how you can continue in the wreckage and through the scorched earth?”
Everything Not Saved Will be Lost—Part 2 will be released on October 18. Watch the video for “Black Bull” here:
