Future Days is the fifth studio album by the German experimental rock group Can, originally released in 1973. It is the last Can album to feature Japanese vocalist Damo Suzuki. On Future Days, the band employs more of an ambient sound than on their previous efforts, especially on the title track and the twenty-minute "Bel Air". The latter of these has been described by critics as being gloriously expansive and Can's most impressionistic song, with "an almost painterly sense of blended colors and landscapes."[1][2]

The album was ranked number 8 on Rolling Stone‍ '​s 50 Greatest Prog Rock Albums of All Time list.[3]
