Foster the People return full of new album

Many years after the global success of 'Pumped Up Kicks', the interesting album 'Supermodel', the unexpected success of 'Sit Next to Me'… Foster the People – now the duo composed of Mark Foster and Isom Innis – returns with a new album .

Since 2017, the market has not seen new full-length work by Foster the People. The new one, 'Paradise State of Mind', will be released on August 16. For now its official tracklist has not been released.

In all this time, Foster the People has released singles and an EP, 'In the Darkest of Nights, Let the Birds Sing' (2020). Songs like 'Cadillac' have paved the way for what Foster the People offers in 'Lost in Space', a commitment to current nu-disco from people like Purple Disco Macine or The Knocks, with whom they have collaborated. Passed through the Foster the People pop filter, of course.

'Lost in Space' does not renounce either the strings or the vocoders, although you do not look for the personality of the production in its bass drum so indebted to New Order or DFA Records: it is the voice of Mark Foster, his golden falsetto, the one that can make a difference in the current playlists.

The music video for 'Lost in Space', so aesthetically pleasing, is one that catches your eye from second zero. Directed by Rupert Höller.
