Hear Bastille’s New Hangover Cure ‘Joy’

Track will appear on British outfit’s upcoming LP, Doom Days

British synth-pop outfit Bastille find euphoria in the dawn of a new day after a long night on their new song, “Joy,” from their forthcoming album, Doom Days out June 14th via Virgin Records.

Doom Days is set over the course of a single night and “takes the listener on a big night out in search of distraction form the surrounding apocalypse.” As the album’s closer, “Joy” doesn’t portray the morning after in a foggy daze, but rather captures the still-lingering thrill and the hangover-killing cure of a phone call. “Oh joy, when you call me,” frontman Dan Smith sings. “I was giving up, I was giving in/Joy, set my mind free/I was giving up, I was giving in/How’d you always know when I’m down?”

In a statement, Smith added, “That glimmer of hope at the end of the album says everything. The smallest human gesture can pull you back from the brink.”

“Joy” follows the previously released Doom Days title track and “Quarter Past Midnight,” which was released last May. Doom Days, which is available to pre-order, marks Bastille’s third album, following 2016’s Wild World. The band recorded the new LP at their studio, One Eyed Jack’s, in South London.

Bastille also announced a North American tour in support of Doom Days, which will launch September 16th in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and wrap October 29th in Mexico City, Mexico. Tickets for most shows will go on sale May 10th at 10 a.m. local time, though complete information is available on Bastille’s website.
