Bastille announce new album “Wild world” + new single “Good grief” (audio)

After a lenghty hiatus, English indie-pop group Bastille return with a new album “Wild world”, which will be out later this year.
First single is the soulful/indie-rock song “Good grief”. The track opens with dialogue from actress Kelly Le Brock’s iconic character Lisa from the film “Weird Science”, “What would you little maniacs like to do first?”.

“Wild world” is the follow-up to “Bad blood”, which produced the best-selling and critically-acclaimed single “Pompeii”.
In a press release, frontman Dan Smith explains “If our first album was about growing up and the anxieties surrounding it, our second is about trying to make sense of the world around you, both as you see it and as it’s presented to you through the media. It’s also about asking questions of the world and of the people in it.”

Lyrics:

So, what would you little maniacs like to do first?

Watching through my fingers, watching through my fingers
Shut my eyes and count to ten
It goes in one ear out the other, one ear out the other
Burning bright right till the end
Now you’ll be missing from the photographs, missing from the photographs

Watching through my fingers, watching through my fingers
In my thoughts you’re far away
And you are whistling a melody, whistling a melody
Crystallizing clear as day
Oh I can picture you so easily, picture you so easily

What’s gonna be left of the world if you’re not in it?
What’s gonna be left of the world, oh

Every minute and every hour
I miss you, I miss you, I miss you more
Every stumble and each misfire
I miss you, I miss you, I miss you more

Watching through my fingers, watching through my fingers
Caught off guard by your favorite song
Oh I’ll be dancing at a funeral, dancing at a funeral
Sleeping in the clothes you love
It’s such a shame we had to see them burn, shame we had to see them burn

What’s gonna be left of the world if you’re not in it?
What’s gonna be left of the world, oh

Every minute and every hour
I miss you, I miss you, I miss you more
Every stumble and each misfire
I miss you, I miss you, I miss you more

You might have to excuse me
I’ve lost control of all my senses
And you might have to excuse me
I’ve lost control of all my words
So get drunk, call me a fool
Put me in my place, put me in my place
Pick me up, up off the floor
Put me in my place, put me in my place

Every minute and every hour
I miss you, I miss you, I miss you more
Every stumble and each misfire
I miss you, I miss you, I miss you more

Watching through my fingers, watching through my fingers
Cause every minute and every hour
I miss you, I miss you, I miss you more
