Above & Beyond may have their record setting sold-out show at Madison Square Gardens just around the corner, but that’s not the only thing that is spreading the iconic British trio’s name across headlines. Just recently, Above & Beyond announced that that on January 20th, they will be debuting their much anticipated third artist album through the support of both Anjunabeats and Ultra Music. If you head over to the music store, you can pre-order your copy of the album which will allow you a free download of ‘Sticky Fingers’ and ‘Blue Sky Action’ on October 18th.
Titled ‘We Are All We Need’, the 16 track album will include the anthemic singles ‘Sticky Fingers’ and ‘Blue Sky Action’. For those of you who have already heard these tracks, you may begin to piece together the overlying theme of the album as a whole. Above & Beyond has always been known for the human connection they establish even to the largest crowds they play to, and this human connection, and the human experiences that connect us to one another, is what ‘We Are All We Need’ is all about. Featuring the vocals of Zoë Johnston (who sings the albums title song), Alex Vargas and Justine Suissa, this all star line up of support is sure to set this album apart from any other work of dance music to date.
“As the writing process unfolded we kept noticing a recurring theme. . . Zoë hit it on the head with the beautiful song ‘We’re All We Need’ and, after a minute’s thought, we had our album title. It’s very Above & Beyond and feels to us like a development of Group Therapy: you are most certainly included in our ‘We’!”
The Album art, shown above, is a hand that is comprised of the names of countless fans as well as all the collaborators and contributors who helped shape the album. But just because you may not see yours in the web of interconnecting names, doesn’t mean it can’t be. That is because the trio invites all fans to create their own uniquely constructed album art through an app which allows you to insert your name and all your friend’s names into your own copy of the album art. More exclusive previews of tracks that will be included in the album will be featured at their Madison Square Gardens show, set to celebrate 100 episodes of their Group Therapy radio show. If you can’t make it out to the show, then you can tune in to the Sirius XM BPM stream to catch everything live on October 18th at 7:00 Eastern Time.
