Speaking to NME, Foals frontman Yannis Philippakis gave some insight into the band's upcoming fourth album, What Went Down, which arrives next month. He said, "This is the record that most closely mimics the sound in our heads. We wanted it to be lean. Both in the individual songs – less reverb, more punchy – but also as an album, so there wasn’t any negative space. We wanted to put the absolute best on there, and the 10 that made it are the ones that all of us were unanimous in liking".
