The Rapture Announce “Sail Away” Single
And Video, Release Remix Contest Details
Sail Away Remix EP Due Out In
December via DFA Records
The Rapture released their critically-acclaimed album In The Grace Of Your Love in September via DFA Records, and now the band has announced that “Sail Away” will be the second single from the record. The Sail Away Remix EP is due out in December, and features remixes from Cut Copy, Aeroplane and Cosmic Kids.
The band is also sharing the video for “Sail Away,” directed by Kris Moyes, which is their first official music video in five years. The video follows the band on a fantasy-ride through the streets of Brooklyn, with Luke Jenner sailing the streets on a silver mylar pillow! And that’s not all- did we mention the magical conch shell and ram’s horn?! Check out the video premiere on Pitchfork and VEVO to see for yourselves.
The Rapture is also hosting a remix contest for “How Deep Is Your Love?” via Soundcloud. The contest will run until the beginning of December, when The Rapture and DFA Records will choose the winner.
