The next big thing from the Future imprint is an EP called “My Life With A Corpse”.
The name itself is a play on “My life with a corpse”, the title of a book by Mark Twain, which describes the afterlife as a series of “corpse islands” with no one left to speak to.
The concept of a afterlife was first popularised by Russian novelist Vyacheslav Grossman in his book The Secret of Narnia, but was later extended by the Catholic Church and its followers to include the afterlife of people who commit suicide.
The title of the EP is a reference to a poem by the French writer Michel Houellebecq, which states that the afterlife is an “empty island, with no place for you to die”.
The EP also features guest appearances from members of Future’s A-side group Future Islands, including Jai Paul, Yung Lean, Thee Oh Sees, and Zaytoven.
Future Islands will be performing a performance of the song “Tightly Tie” on the album, along with the likes of Theophilus London, Zayn Malik, A$AP Rocky, and many others.
Future’s album has also been announced, with the release of the LP in early May.
A preview of the track “Tunnel of Love” was included on the official album cover, as well as an extended tracklist that includes guest appearances by Future, A-Side group Future Island, and A$AC member Future.
The full tracklist is as follows: Track 1: Tunnel of Love (Future Islands) Track 2: Biggie (A$AP Ferg) (Feat.
Theophilos London) Track 3: Don’t Think Twice (Zayn Malik) track 4: Ain’t No Love (Thee Oh Sings) [feat.
Yung lean] track 5: The Last Song (Theophilus) track 6: Bigger Than You (Zaytovin) Track 7: Tunnel Of Love (Future Islands)[feat.
Future Island] Track 8: The Longest Day (Future Island) The LP also includes a new video for the song ‘Tunnels’.
The clip features a crowd of people watching the song in the audience as Future makes his way through a tunnel, as if in a tunnel.
Future appears to be a character from a Japanese manga series known as Kōzō Shōjo Shōzou, which was adapted into a movie by the same name in 2012.
In the film, he is a giant cat who is the son of a scientist.
Future said that the original concept for the video was for a video of him climbing the world’s tallest tower, which he would then destroy with a giant hammer.
In 2017, Future also revealed that he was in the process of recording a new album called The Longer My Life, which would consist of 10 songs and would be released in early 2019.
A few months later, he announced that he would be making another album called Future Island.
The album will include a title track, an extended version of ‘Tune In To Future’, as well the single ‘Future Island’.
Future also announced the release date for the album in June.
Future Islands EP is due out in May 2019.
