At long last, fans of the iconic duo are treated to a greater taste of what’s to come on their long-awaited album, The Only Road.
Gabriel & Dresden continue their journey of releasing their first album in 11 years with two new atmospheric tracks. The Only Road will be released on December 15, 2017, on Anjunabeats, and fans can pre-order the physical CD or pre-save it on Spotify beginning today. Fans who pre-order will receive the first three singles automatically.
Fans of the duo have waited with bated breath for news of the album’s release, with 700 backers contributing on Kickstarter to support them in this endeavor. If the first three tracks are any indication of what we can expect from the full album, we’re in for an incredible treat upon its full release.
Stream Gabriel & Dresden – “Waiting for Winter” & “White Walls” on Spotify:
Longtime collaborator Jan Burton returns for “Waiting for Winter”, no doubt to the delight of Gabriel & Dresden fans around the world. The production begins with soft, ambient chords overlaid with a delicate mosaic of arpeggiated synths, giving the entire track the feel of walking through gently falling snow.
Sub Teal returns for another track, lending her smooth and elegant voice to the second single, the expressive “White Walls”. Anjuna family will no doubt recognize this marvelous tune from Above & Beyond’s Deep Set at ABGT250. The round, sunny chord progression lend a heartwarming tone to a song that is about, appropriately, coming home.
The duo posted a sincere note of thanks on Facebook for fans alongside the release:
This is the same Gabriel & Dresden sound that we’ve known and come to love over the years. Their style has stood the test of time and remains crisp and fresh as ever, devoid of trend-chasing and, as ever, paving the road ahead.
