Future Islands have released ALAYA Remixes 2, the second of three remix EPs featuring reworks of songs from their 2020-released album As Long As You Are. It includes a remix of “For Sure” by Washed Out, as well remixes of “Thrill” by COMPUTER DATA and “Hit The Coast” by Smallboy. Listen to all three remixes below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates and the first remix EP.

As Long As You Are came out back in October of last year on 4AD, and made it to #17 on our Top 100 Albums of 2020 list. It features the songs “For Sure,” which features backing vocals from Jenn Wasner of Wye Oak and Flock of Dimes and was one of our Songs of the Week, “Thrill” (which was also one of our Songs of the Week), “Moonlight”(which also made our Songs of the Week list), and “Born in a War,” which the band performed on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Then they shared a video for the album’s “Glada.”

As Long As You Are is the follow-up to 2017’s The Far Field. The band’s core lineup of Samuel T. Herring (vocals), John Gerrit Welmers (keyboards), and William Cashion (bass), has now been officially joined by longtime touring drummer Michael Lowry (who also contributes to the songwriter). The four-piece co-produced the album with engineer Steve Wright, recording it at his Wrightway Studios in Baltimore.

Back in June 2020, Cashion self-released an ambient solo album under his own name entitled Postcard Music. Listen to our Why Not Both podcast interview with Cashion about balancing Future Islands with his ambient music.
