Big Gigantic Want to Cure the World With Funk on New Album 'Brighter Future:' Exclusive
If you've ever seen Big Gigantic live, you know they have the power to bring people together. The Colorado duo's shows are heart-lightening events -- places where people from all walks of life can come together and dance to the sounds of sweet, sexy saxophone.
Parties and music festivals may seem trivial, but that kind of release is important for humanity. Big Gigantic recognizes the role they play in people's moods, and the band kept that responsibility in mind when writing its latest LP, the up-beat, feature-heavy, 13-track Brighter Future.
Billboard Dance can exclusively announce the Aug. 26 release of the new album, whose title is the band's wish for the world.
“These words vaulted themselves into my mind one day in a moment when I was feeling like I was unsure of myself, unsure of what exactly I was doing with my life, and unsure about humanity and the volatile state of the world we live in today,” says Big G's Dominic Lalli in an emailed statement. “I think now more than ever, we need to come together and work towards a Brighter Future for us, for our children and for the human race as a whole.”
It's a celebration of sound right from the album's colorful opening notes. It explores positive themes of love, appreciation, and self-confidence on tracks featuring Waka Flocka Flame, Logic, GRIZ, Rozes and more. Of course, there's tons of groovy sax and banging beats, and if you close your eyes, you might just feel Dom and partner Jeremy Salken giving you a big bear hug.
“Every single human on this earth, no matter race, skin color, religion or any other difference, bleeds the same color blood,” Lalli says. “There are so many ways to turn things around by spreading positivity, love, acceptance and understanding. Love yourself, love those around you and be kind. We need each other more than ever and we need to stick together, work together and unite.”
Brighter Future is out Aug. 26 and is available for pre-order online now with instant downloads of "Got the Love" ft. Jennifer Hartswick, as well as four previously released singles ("The Little Things," "C'mon" ft. GRiZ, "Miss Primetime" (ft. Pell)."
