It’s confirmed, Above & Beyond are bringing back their much-loved acoustic concept this summer.
Following a series of teasers throughout social media yesterday, Above & Beyond have now announced details of their forthcoming ‘Acoustic III’ album which will feature completely new arrangements of some of the biggest hits from their ‘Common Ground’ album including ‘Northern Soul’, ‘My Own Hymn’ and ‘Happiness Amplified’, plus reinterpretations of 2019 club singles ‘There’s Only You’, ‘Waltz’ and more.
The album release will be followed by a massive ‘Acoustic III’ UK & North America Tour, which is scheduled to kick off with two intimate shows at London’s Alexandra Palace Theatre on April 24 & 25, followed by a show at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall on April 27.
The tour will also reach 14 other cities including Washington DC, Toronto, Montreal, NYC, Dallas, LA, with a special finale at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado, plus more.
Celebrated Above & Beyond collaborators Zoë Johnston and Justine Suissa will return to the stage for the ‘Acoustic III’ Tour and will be joined by a host of other contributing vocalists including Marty Longstaff and Opposite The Other’s Sam Burger.
Above & Beyond have once again enlisted musical director and producer Bob Bradley to arrange and co-produce “Acoustic III”, and fans can expect more uptempo arrangements, bold brass instrumentation and just the right amount of funk!
They’ve released the first single from their forthcoming album, a stunning new rendition of ‘Flying By Candlelight’ with Marty Longstaff – have a listen below.
