Foster The People have had an awfully quiet year following the release of their sophomore album ‘Supermodel’ in 2014. But the ‘Pumped Up Kicks’ indie-poppers are back with the bang, treating their fans to an early Christmas present with the surprise release of a new single.

‘The Unforeseeable Fate of Mr Jones’ is an understated glimpse of what’s to come on the band’s as-yet-untitled third album. Interspersed with spoken word verses, the track has an undeniable Foster The People, toe-tapping feel to it. Yet we’re also treated to a darker and previously unseen side of the Californian band – carried by a twinkling, gloomy undercurrent.

Released through a BitTorrent Bundle, the single comes accompanied with another new song, ‘Ruby’. Click here to download both tracks for free.

Now that Foster The People are slowly awakening from a much-needed slumber, we’re sure further details of album three, and tour dates, will follow.
