Above & Beyond have revealed the video for their brand-new single, ‘Always’. With long-term collaborator, Grammy-nominated Zoë Johnston taking the lead on vocals, the esteemed trance trio have returned with a lush piano ballad from their forthcoming ‘Common Ground’ LP, set for release on January 26th via Anjunabeats.
The trio, who in December announced the album along with their biggest U.S. tour to date, have been embracing a life away from the dancefloor of late, with an announcement made in December that they would be releasing their tour documentary titled ‘Above & Beyond Acoustic—Giving Up The Day Job’, focusing on the trio’s 11-city live tour in 2016.
Speaking about the song, Johnston said, “[it] acknowledges that those who are there for us no matter what still have the choice to walk away. They could choose to disappear, or backtrack on a commitment to love us, but the fact that they don't is what makes their love evermore extraordinary and precious to us.”
‘Always’ comes accompanied by a video of the trio and Johnston trekking across a snowy mountain landscape. You can watch that below.
Above & Beyond are set to headline a 15,000-capacity show in London later this year, as part of Creamfields' ongoing Steel Yard event series.
