Spotify UK – Making of Total Life Forever

Mercury Prize nominated Foals recently released their sophomore album, Total Life Forever, to rave reviews. The album was recorded during late 2009 at Svenska Grammofon Studion in Gothenburg, Sweden, by Luke Smith (Clor), and was mixed by wild man Alan Moulder in London 2010.

By choosing to record in the labyrinthine Svenska Grammofon Studion, the band were intent on
ridding themselves of distractions. Isolated but close-knit, they worked for two months, honing
their dynamic musicality. Be sure to check out the video for a little insight into the making of the album.

Additionally, Spotify Premium listeners can check out a bonus edition of the new album with two additional tracks and an interview with the band.


  1. Argh you guys are awesome! I’ve wanted this back for so long, and you end up doing so AND adding bonus tracks! Big big love.
