Give Dan and the lads a call…
Bastille are teasing the fourth instalment of their ‘Other People’s Heartache’ mixtape series, with cryptic phone lines revealing snippets of new music. Check out the posts below.
The ‘Pompeii’ band are scheduled to embark on a huge UK and Ireland arena tour in January, having teased a “euphoric” third full-length album earlier this year.
During the summer, frontman Dan Smith told NME that the group would also be releasing a mixtape. “There’s a lot of music knocking about,” he said.
Now, Bastille are teasing ‘Other People’s Heartache’ part four by posting phone numbers for fans to call. The area-specific digits have been uploaded to Instagram, with the videos featuring a synth drone and the words, “Free your body and mind”.
Upon calling the number, the voice of Dan Smith can be heard announcing, “Up next on other people’s heartache”. A voice sample then says, “Just get high repeatedly, don’t wanna come down”. After being instructed to “now wait a minute”, a funk-infused instrumental is played down the line.
The website otherpeoplesheartache.com also features the words: “COS THE DEVIL’S GOT MY ARMS, AND IT PULLS ME BACK INTO THE NIGHT”

Bastille’s first ‘Other People’s Heartache’ mixtape was released in February 2012, with part two following in December that same year. The series’ third instalment came out in 2014 and featured collaborations with the likes of MNEK and Rag’n’Bone Man.
