Spanish Sahara (6:48)

Cover of Total Life Forever

From Total Life Forever and 6 other releases

Spanish Sahara was the first song to be premiered from Foals new album Total Life Forever. It was played on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show on 10th March, and the video was also released on the same night.

So how did the song title come about? Here’s what Yannis said to the NME: “The title came from a local band’s cassette that I bought for a pound after a show in Oxford. I never listened to it, but it was wrapped in a map, and on that map it said Spanish Sahara. It seemed to fit with the song’s mood, which is lunar and apocalyptic, but beautiful. Hopefully it allows different interpretations.” (For more info on the song check out Spanish Sahara Songfacts)
