We’ve been so swept up in the magic of Above &  Beyond’s legendary two night acoustic performances at the Greek Theatre, that we almost forgot the sobering fact that they previewed a brand new tune off of their upcoming album. Tony McGuinness himself takes the reigns on vocals for a song that apparently hits close to home for him.

October is quickly becoming the month of Above & Beyond, which is nothing unexpected for a trio that have defined a generation for many electronic dance music lovers. For now, here is a Youtube video of the live performance:
