Above & Beyond has been serenading the masses for more than 15 years – and they’re starting off 2018 with their brand new album, Common Ground. The 13-track LP, which will be released on January 26 through their Anjunabeats imprint.
Jono, Tony, and Paavo revealed the Common Ground track listing in early December, which includes a few previously released singles along with a heap of new material. From what we have heard so far, Common Ground already proves to be exactly what we need. “Northern Soul,” which made its debut during ABGT 250 at The Gorge, brings the much-anticipated return of Richard Bedford with one of A&B’s most powerful and motivational singles since Group Therapy. The anthemic “My Own Hymn” embodies the angelic vocals of Zoe Johnston. Marty Longstaff joined the guys on “Tightrope” and “Is It Love? (1001)” sees a Common Ground re-edit. Returning to their OceanLab roots, “Alright Now” feat. Justine Suissa certainly wasn’t enough, which is why fans also have “Naked” and “Cold Feet” to look forward to.
Also among the never-before-heard Common Ground tracks, include collaborations with Zoe on “Sahara Love” and “Always,” and Richard Bedford on “Happiness Amplified” and “Bittersweet And Blue.” The album begins with “The Inconsistency Principle” and closes with the title track, “Common Ground.”
The Common Ground tour kicked off on Dec. 29 at the LA Convention Center, where the guys were joined by Anjuna family favorites Gabriel & Dresden and more. Before the guys make an iconic stop at Barclays Center in NYC, the tour will head to Philadelphia (1/25) and Washington, DC (1/26).
This isn’t the first time that Above & Beyond are headlining an arena show in New York City. For ABGT 100, the guys brought a sold-out show to Madison Square Garden. Now, Jono, Tony, and Paavo return to the Big Apple for a massive Common Ground event at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. On Jan. 27, join Above & Beyond for a magical evening filled with new and classic tunes, likeminded fans, and thousands of others who share some common ground. Don’t miss out on the Barclays action on 1/27 and get your tickets before it’s too late, here.
As the Common Ground tour commences through March – with stops in Chicago (2/17), Detroit (2/18), Houston (2/24), San Francisco (3/2 & 3/3), Portland (3/7 & 3/8) – including the final stop on March 22 at the RC Cola Plant, which takes place during Miami Music Week with special guest Seven Lions.
