Bastille has announced an expanded version of the band’s latest album, Give Me the Future.

Dubbed Give Me the Future + Dreams of the Past, the collection includes new songs and reprises in an effort to give a more “complete picture” of Bastille’s intention with the original record.

“You can dive into the ideas of the future and an electronic world, or you can fall back into the past — away from technology and into ideas of memory and nostalgia — both thematically and musically,” says frontman Dan Smith. “Or you can choose full-on dancefloor heartbreak escape.”

Give Me the Future + Dreams of the Past is due out August 26. It also includes the latest edition of Bastille’s Other People’s Heartache mixtape series, which includes various collaborations and a cover of Bruce Springsteen‘s “Dancing in the Dark.”

You can listen to a new Dreams of the Past track called “Revolution” now via digital outlets.

Give Me the Future was first released in February. It includes the singles “Distorted Light Beam,” “No Bad Days” and “Shut Off the Lights.”
