"The Runner" arrives after August's lead single "Black Bull".

Vocalist/guitarist Yannis Philippakis says of the new single, "It's a call to find a sense of purpose and perseverance despite the odds and despite the troubles we may find inside or outside ourselves."

Foals' first album of the year, Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost - Part 1,dropped back in March, and was nominated for the 2019 Mercury Prize Award last month.

The indie rock group have certainly kept to their word after revealing at the Mercury Prize nominations event that the new record is "a heavier listen", and riddled with "big riffs".

"The Runner" is out now. Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 2 will be released 18 October via Warner Records, and is available to pre-order now.
