FAITHLESS ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM OUT OCTOBER 23rd
Legendary UK Dance act Faithless announce their first new album in ten years, ‘All Blessed’, released on BMG on October 23rd. The first single to be taken from ‘All Blessed’, the uplifting Balearic ‘Synthesizer’ is out now and follows the immaculate ‘This Feeling’ ft. Suli Breaks & Nathan Ball.
On their manifesto for ‘All Blessed’, Faithless said “In this troubled and increasingly violent world, lyrically the album tries to reflect what has always been the Faithless manifesto: be conscious, be caring, love yourself so you can love others and understand who you are and where you are never polemical but hopefully intelligent and (occasionally!) inspirational – this is music with feeling and words with meaning.”
Set in a dystopian futuristic world in which skyscrapers are comprised of speaker towers and synthesizers, the unforgettable video depicts an army of robotic workers whose brains are connected by glowing, pulsating cables to power their queen who looms large over the city. But it all goes wrong…
“This is the track that got us thinking of doing a new album in the first place. A love letter to what we do and the music we make and also a little social commentary on our obsession with technology, musically all rolled into a big bold warm Faithless-y anthem. Inspired by Trevor Horn, Sparks, Jean-Michel Jarre and our own back catalogue!”
Their 2015 remix album ‘Faithless 2.0’ took them back to the top of the charts yet again with their friends the likes of Avicii, Claptone, Tiesto, Eric Prydz and Armin Van Buuren coming forward to offer fresh perspectives on their fan favourites, ‘We Come 1’, ‘Insomnia’, ‘God is a DJ’ and more. Collaborations have always the hallmark of Faithless’ career, working with Robert Smith of The Cure, Dido and Cat Power to name but a few.
