Foster the People is back with a brand-new song released on Nov. 6 called "Worst Nites." The track is similar to the alternative rock band's past songs, with a funky electro-pop sound. The song is already available right now on Spotify and can also be heard on YouTube.
This is the band's first new song since they released their third studio album Sacred Hearts Club in 2017. That album had three singles released, including the platinum track "Sit Next to Me." The video for that song was released on Nov. 17, 2017, making it almost one year since the band released anything new for their fans.
Mark Foster wrote the lyrics for "Worst Nites," which tells the story of the Los Angeles life in the band's clear disco influenced style. The song also features writing credits from Børns and Ryen Tedder of OneRepublic.
Foster the People released the song first on Beats 1 on Apple Music on Zane Lowe's World Record show. There is also a music video coming soon.
While this is the first new music from the band in a year, they did work with The Knocks earlier this year. The bands worked together on the song "Ride or Die" from the Knocks album New York Narcotic.
