Foals Gold

Or should we say Fools Gold? You see, Foals upcoming album Antidotes has been leaked just short of its release in March. However there are differing reports on what the track listing actually is. Around the blogosphere we have seen it listed as followed:

1. The French Open
2. Cassius
3. Red Socks Pugie
4. Olympic Airways
5. The Race For Radio Supremacy
6. Balloons
7. Heavy Water
8. Two Steps, Twice
9. Big Big Love (Fig.2)
10. Like Swimming
11. Tron


Yet on Amazon and Play, it differs!

1. The French Open
2. Cassius
3. Red Socks Pugie
4. Olympic Airways
5. Electric Bloom / Ballroom
6. Balloons
7. Heavy Water
8. Two Steps, Twice
9. Big Big Love (Fig.2)
10. Like Swimming
11. Tron


Foals in fact cleared it up in a myspace blog here.

Though apart from the obvious oddities of leaving off Hummer, Mathletics and Astronauts and All, questions remain. What actually happened to this mysterious tune Electric Bloom (listed on Amazon as Electric Ballroom as well)?

It is good to see them release a truly complete and constructed albu
m though, instead of a compilation of regurgitated, spasmodically released past demos, which seems to be the norm of late. Good for them! And rumour has it that "Hummer and Mathletics will be on the special edition CD which come with special remixes, live footage and other stuff."

Oh, and here is that mysterious track.
