wild-beasts-present-tense
U.K. quiver-pop band Wild Beasts has just announced the follow-up to 2011′s Smother. It’s called Present Tense, and it’s out February 25 via Domino. Along with the news comes a visual for the album’s first single, Wanderlust.
 
Directed by NYSU, the clip features four characters (The Thief, The Good Lady, The Quarterback and The Girl) as they run through a faded, dream-like landscape. It’s like The Breakfast Club, except instead of Judd Nelson pouting in a storage room, it’s got a guy in a Hawaiian shirt running with a bag of money. The deluxe vinyl version of the LP will feature a bonus 12-inch with remixes by Factory Floor and the Field. Check out the video, along with Wild Beasts’ upcoming tour dates and the Present Tense tracklist, below.
