Ahead of a European tour and fresh off a run opening for Weezer, Baltimore rockers Future Islands have shared their first new song of 2023. Titled “Deep in the Night,” it’s a cinematic, sweeping ballad that showcases Samuel T. Herring’s vocals. Debuted last year during a performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the song arrives with a video directed by Albert Birney.
Despite the band’s lack of recent studio activity, Herring has remained busy guesting songs by billy woods, Algiers, and R.A.P. Ferreira. He is also set to appear on the upcoming Apple TV+ horror series The Changeling.
