New York – After returning to the Late Show with David Letterman last night, Future Islands have officially released two new tracks: “The Chase” and “Haunted By You.”
Last March, the Baltimore-based trio of William Cashion, Samuel T. Herring and Gerrit Whelmers, made their groundbreaking network television debut on Letterman. Yesterday evening they debuted new single “The Chase” live on the show, after being personally invited back to mark one of the final broadcasts before Letterman’s retirement.
The track is released today as a double A-side, along with another unheard song titled, “Haunted By You,” which the band first performed at their recent sold-out UK shows. The two tracks are available to buy on iTunes and streaming on Spotify. ‘The Chase’ Physical 7” will be available at retailers and through the 4AD store on June 30. Pre-order the 7” HERE.
The accompanying videos can be viewed in YouTube, as well as last night’s live footage from Letterman.

A live version of “The Chase” was recently recorded straight to vinyl at the famous Abbey Road Studios, as part of Record Store Day 2015. 6Music premiered the recording, along with interviews with the band and Abbey Road studio engineers. The one-off pressing was raffled off at Leamington Spa’s Seismic Records, with proceeds going to the Myton Hospices charity.
