Foals have announced a new album in 2022 but have not shared any details regarding the name or release date.

“With ‘Wake Me Up,’ I just wanted to write a song about transporting yourself to a better, idyllic situation,” lead singer Yannis Philippakis said in a statement. “I think we all had that feeling of the last eighteen months being like a weird fever dream that felt surreal but very affecting. I think we all wished we could have woken up somewhere else at various points.”
