Anjuna Family rejoice, Above & Beyond announced a new album and tour!
Last night Above & Beyond dropped the amazing news. Anjuna Family from all over the globe is at The Gorge Amphitheater embracing one another and taking in the amazing feels of #ABGT250. It’s only fitting that the amazingly influential and touching trio choose this setting to announce their latest album, Common Ground.
The ambiance for this announcement was perfect. Right at the close of their second set of the day, The wildly popular We Are All We Need was winding down and the camera panned toward Jono Grant, Paavo Siljamäki, and Tony McGuinness on the stage. Their track, “The Power of Vulnerability” began playing and Paavo typed these words:
“WE COME FROM ALL CORNERS OF THIS BLUE PLANET
WE COME IN ALL COLOURS SHAPES AND SIZES
WE BELIEVE IN MANY DIFFERENT THINGS
SO IT MIGHT BE TOO EASY TO THINK WE ARE MORE DIVIDED THAN WE ACTUALLY ARE
WITH YOUR HEART AND MIND OPEN
YOU’LL REALISE WE SHARE MUCH MORE THAN WHAT DIVIDES US
JUST GO AND FIND THAT PLACE
THIS IS A PLACE WE CALL
The words “Common Ground” stayed on the black screen, then was surrounded by an array of colors arranged in a Venn diagram. Confetti sprayed around the audience and the words and colors on screen were placed atop a white backdrop, with the group’s name appearing as well. With that Tony, Jono and Paavo introduced their forthcoming album, Common Ground. You can pre-save the album on Spotify here.
Not only will Above & Beyond release a new album, they will also be going on tour. Only two stops have been announced as of yet. First stop will be Los Angeles, CA on December 29 followed by New York on January 27.
