The Rapture - "Sail Away" Video + Remix Contest

The Rapture - Sail Away

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 Away has 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 to see for yourselves.
