Last night, Above & Beyond took to Times Square in NYC to premiere the music video for their new song We’re All We Need, which also just so happens to be the title track off their upcoming album.
Teaming up once again with frequent collaborator Zoë Johnston, the group delivers another solid trance anthem that harkens back to exactly what fans love about them. Johnson’s haunting vocals are placed over a catchy bassline that takes us through an emotional progression of the beautiful and soulful music that ties everything together.
The video itself is very well done and is obviously an homage to the classic film Thelma & Louise. It’s well worth a watch as it perfectly captures the spirit/theme of the track, which is “the experiences and emotions that bind us.”
Here’s what the legendary group had to say about their new single:
“We Are All We Need” is an an album that places human relationships at its core, and explores the experiences and emotions that bind us – whether on defiant ode to friendship “We’re All We Need”, the anthemic “Blue Sky Action” or the possessive, post break-up tension of “Sticky Fingers”. As with 2011’s “Group Therapy”, Above & Beyond have worked with Andrew Bayer on the production of the album, which features 16 tracks including vocal collaborations with Zoë Johnston, Alex Vargas and Justine Suissa.”
“Above & Beyond commented: “As the writing process unfolded we kept noticing a recurring theme. Zoe hit it on the head with the beautiful song “We’re All We Need” and, after a minute’s thought, we had our album title. It’s very Above & Beyond and feels to us like a development of Group Therapy: you are most certainly included in our ‘We’!”
“No song on the album embodies these themes more than the aforementioned title track “We’re All We Need”, sung beautifully by Zoë Johnston.”
