It’s only Tuesday and it’s already been a busy week for Future Islands. Last night, the Baltimore synth-pop crew made their television debut on Late Show With David Letterman, drawing raves from the host with a performance of “Seasons (Waiting on You).” This morning, they released “A Dream of You and Me,” the second cut from their upcoming LP Singles, one of our 50 Albums You Gotta Hear in 2014. And tonight they’ll kick off a 48-city headlining tour that includes a stop at SXSW for SPIN’s Day Party. The upbeat new track is accompanied by an adorable, arts-and-crafts stop-motion video directed by bassist William Cashion and illustrator Elena Johnston. Check that out above, the Letterman performance below, and pick up Singles on March 25 via 4AD.
