Bastille is making their 2021 return with the dystopic new single “Distorted Light Beam,” a gleaming, metallic rush of retro-futuristic pop, and the first offering from the band’s upcoming studio release set for shelves and streaming later this year.

Hear it below and all day today on your favorite Audacy stations.

The track arrives along with a cinematic music video starring British actress Remmie Milner from the award-winning series Save Me, and of course, frontman Dan Smith, which shows a newly developed technology called "Futurescape" transform life as we know it -- a reflection on how we are all changing and the ways in which we can manipulate our realities to fit a narrative that better suits us.

Discussing the new single which was co-written by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder, Smith (joined by bandmates Kyle Simmons, Will Farquarson, and Chris Wood) tells us the new track is meaningful to him as it's "the beginning of a new era for our band."
