Sultan + Shepard just announced a new studio album, Forever, Now to be released February 17, 2023, on Lane 8’s acclaimed This Never Happened imprint. This follows their 2021 album, Something, Everything and 2019’s double release, Echoes of Life: Night and Echoes of Life: Day.
Forever, Now‘s first single ‘Losing Ground‘ is available to stream now – it’s a beautiful record comprised of effortless sweeping melodies and an innate articulate message peppered throughout the incredible vocals delivered by LA-based Tishmal.
The duo began working on Forever, Now just as the world began opening up from the pandemic. As many did during this time, they felt a wave of emotions, as ‘pent-up feelings and emotions were being released‘ from both themselves and people over the world. The album was created organically as a result.
-Ned of Sultan + Shepard
‘The concept of ‘Forever, Now’ grew out of this familiar feeling of being grounded in a place of creativity despite being in new places sonically or physically. We realized that wherever we went, there we were. Things were always moving and changing, as we ourselves were too. But through the act of being sincere in expressing our emotions, a sense of being in just the right place or hitting just the right note would often arise.”
You can preorder Forever, Now here in advance of its February 17 release date via This Never Happened. Be on the lookout for information regarding the upcoming Forever, Now album tour which will be visiting key North American markets during the winter of 2023.
