PO NOW: Future Islands - As Long As You Are


Recommended Posts

The Baltimore group release As Long As You Are, their sixth studio record, via 4AD. As Long As You Are looks to the past as well as the future, confronting old ghosts and embracing a new hope. It is an album about trust, full of honesty, redemption and “letting go”, allowing old wounds to heal and bringing painful chapters to a close. As Long As You Are also signals a new era for Future Islands. Drummer Mike Lowry officially joins as a fully-fledged member and songwriter bolstering the founding trio of William Cashion, Samuel T. Herring and Gerrit Welmers. Together, the four-piece took on official production duties for the first time, co-producing As Long As You Are with engineer Steve Wright at his Wrightway Studios in Baltimore. Their brand of new wave synth-pop full of bright melodies and heavenly choruses is as euphoric and uninhibitedly joyful as anything the band has done in their 14-year career.

Hello,
 
We're writing to let you know that unfortunately there was a vinyl production issue with the orange version you’ve preordered and we will not be able to fulfill all of the orders we received. We are offering to exchange orders of the orange with the limited edition blue vinyl (attached here) or the standard black. Please let us know if you would like to proceed with the blue or black vinyl or if you’d prefer to cancel your order. Respond to this email and please include your order number.
 
We will be issuing a free digital download of the album via an email from SendOwl that contains a download link.
 
We apologize for the inconvenience.
 
Thanks,
