In the past few weeks the band have been teasing the track on socials with photos taken at their studio in Iceland (shot by Chad Moore, see here) and today posted a teaser to the song featuring footage of the recording process and scenic views of Iceland. See the song teaser here!
“We recorded this version of Post Malone’s ‘Circles’ in our studio in Iceland in February,” the band stated. “We are fans of Post and love the song. It’s cool how his songs can take on entirely different feelings in a new context. We are excited to share our take on the song and hope everyone can listen at home and stay safe and healthy.”
Of Monsters And Men released their third studio album Fever Dream last year via Republic Records.

Fever Dream debuted at #9 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and was met with widespread critical acclaim from The Line of Best Fit, Consequence of Sound, NME, Paste, Billboard, and NPR Music’s All Songs Considered who stated “Of Monsters and Men is a really terrific band. If you’ve ever seen them live, there is tremendous energy and joy and spirit in what they do. This record Fever Dream is terrific.” They also performed on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
