VIDEO: The Rapture – ‘Sail Away’

The Rapture

The Rapture return with a new single ‘Sail Away’ taken from their acclaimed third album ‘In The Grace Of Your Love’ on December 12th through DFA Records.  It follows on from dancefloor smash ‘How Deep Is Your Love?’ and will be released as a special remix EP featuring new mixes courtesy of Aeroplane,  Cosmic Kids & Cut Copy.  Described by The Times as “euphoric widescreen pop” Sail Awayhas quickly become a live favourite amongst fans thanks to its hypnotic and anthemic refrain.

The band is also sharing the video for “Sail Away,” directed by Kris Moyes. 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. Check out the video above to see for yourselves.

The Rapture have just completed a full UK & European tour including two sold out London shows, first at the legendary 100 club to celebrate DFA’s 10th Anniversary followed by a heaving show at KOKO.

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. Head over to the DFA Records official site for complete details on the contest and to download the stems for the track.
