Previously Foals shared Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost - Part 2's first three singles: "Black Bull" (via a video for the track), "The Runner," and "Into the Surf" (which was one of our Songs of the Week). They also released a remix album, Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost - Part 1: Remixes, featuring Metronomy and others. Then they shared a cinematic video for "The Runner" in which frontman Yannis Philippakis fights his doppelganger. Then they shared an animated an animated video for "Into the Surf."

Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost - Part 1 was nominated for the Mercury Prize (it didn't win). Previously Foals shared a cinematic video for Part 1's first single, "Exits" (which was one of our Songs of the Week), a video for "On the Luna," and a lyric video for "Sunday" (which was also one of our Songs of the Week). Then once the album was released album track "In Degrees" was #2 on our Songs of the Week list. Then the band shared videos for Part 1's "White Onions," "Cafe D'Athens," "In Degrees," and "Sunday."

The albums are the follow-up to 2015's What Went Down. Philippakis produced the albums, which were recorded at 123 Studios in Peckham, London with the help of engineer Brett Shaw. The band also features Jimmy Smith (guitar), Jack Bevan (drums), and Edwin Congreave (keys).

In a previous press release Philippakis had this to say about releasing two albums: "They're two halves of the same locket. They can be listened to and appreciated individually, but fundamentally, they are companion pieces."

Philippakis said that the albums do address the environmental crisis our planet faces. "There's a definite idea about the world being no longer habitable in the way that it was," he said. "A kind of perilousness lack of predictability and a feeling of being overwhelmed by the magnitudes of the problems we face. What's the response? And what's the purpose of any response that one individual can have?"

Philippakis added: "Lyrically, there are resonances with what's going on in the world at the moment. I just feel like, what's the utility of being a musician these days, if you can't engage with at least some of this stuff? These songs are white flags, or they're SOSs, or they're cries for help... each in a different way."
