Rolling Stone magazine is going London calling, and Bastille is along for the ride.

Dan Smith and company are among the cover stars for the inaugural issue of Rolling Stone UK. In the accompanying cover story, Smith shares more details about the upcoming new Bastille album, which is largely about the idea of living your life in virtual reality.

“We’ve all had to face a lot of challenges [in recent years] be it, like, things happening to ourselves, our families, our minds, or whatever circumstance life throws at you,” Smith says. “But I think there are moments in all our lives where you want to maybe not be yourself or be a different version of yourself or be out of the circumstances that you’re in because you might be a bit trapped in them.”

Bastille has previewed the album this year with the singles “Distorted Light Beam,” “Give Me the Future” and “Thelma + Louise.”
