Future Islands have returned with “The Fight,” the latest single from their forthcoming album, People Who Aren’t There Anymore.

Built around a down-tempo beat, “The Fight” is colored by an ethereal synth soundscape of hazy chords and glistening counter-melodies. Underneath, a deep, steady bass line holds down the bottom end, while overtop, the band’s Sam Herring delivers the kind of impassioned performance that only he can provide, singing fiery lines about self-preservation. “I won’t fade away,” the chorus goes. “I will face every day/ As if it’s my last one/ And I will keep you safe/ Just like our past was/ Fight for love every day.”

“The Fight” also arrives with an animated music video, matching the tonality of the song with abstract depictions of a dark-haired figure in red. Watch it below.

Last month, Future Islands confirmed that their seventh studio album, People Who Aren’t There Anymore, will arrive on January 26th (with pre-orders ongoing). Along with that announcement, they shared the single, “The Tower.” Earlier in the year, they shared the single “Deep in the Night.”
