Bastille’s ‘Joy‘ was released today, and it came with a gorgeous visualizer. A visualizer that illustrates perfectly the joyful feel of that song.
‘Joy‘ is from the British synth-pop bands upcoming third studio album Doom Days, due to be released on the Virgin Records label on June 14th.
According to Bastille lead vocalist Dan Smith, Doom Days takes place over a single night with songs that take “the listener on a big night out in search of distraction from the surrounding apocalypse.”
As for ‘Joy‘, it is the last track on the album, and was written and then placed there with the intention of reminding you there is always a glimmer of hope. Even when things seem to be at their worst.
As Smith said about it in a statement, “That glimmer of hope at the end of the album says everything. The smallest human gesture can pull you back from the brink.”
And, if you watch Bastille’s ‘Joy‘ visualizer below, you will definitely feel that hope, because it’s gorgeous.
Doom Days is already available to pre-order, and is the first release since Bastille’s Wild World.
The album tracklist looks like this:
