Foals hint at Tony Allen collaboration in Instagram post

Is a collaboration in the works?

Foals have hinted that they may be working with renowned drummer Tony Allen in an Instagram post.

The image, which appeared on frontman Yannis Philippakis’ Instagram, was accompanied by the caption: “Getting nerdy with Tony in the studio.”

The shot shows the legendary musician, who has worked with Damon Albarn, Ginger Baker, Doctor L, Theo Parrish, and, of course, Fela Kuti in the past, half hidden behind a Doepfer modular synth.

Foals are well known to be admirers of Allen, having including a Carl Craig remix of his track Kilode on their 2012 Tapes mix.
