The mellow new cut follows on from previous singles "Thrill" and "For Sure", and arrives with a visual directed by Will Mayer (BADBADNOTGOOD) and starring Matthew Gray Gubler (Criminal Minds, 500 Days of Summer) and Callie Hernandez (La La Land, Alien).

Future Islands' Samuel T. Herring says of the new release, ""Moonlight" is a song about love in a depressive state. It’s about recognising the holes in ourselves and recognising the circular whole of others. "Moonlight" is about acceptance because that’s what love allows us all. "I couldn’t see / I had a cloud in my arms / but if I asked you would you say / It’s only rain / nothing more."

As Long As You Are will be Future Islands' sixth album, following on from 2017's The Far Field.

Future Islands co-produced their upcoming album with engineer Steve Wright at his Wrightway Studios in Baltimore.

"Moonlight" is out now. Future Islands' As Long As You Are album will be released on 9 October, and is available to pre-order now.
