Above & Beyond may be one of the most majestic acts in electronic history. It's as if the trio exists simply to astound and emotionally overwhelm, and it's no different on the group's latest single "Always," the final teaser before the release of sixth-studio album Common Ground Friday, Jan. 26.
"Always" is a slow, piano-driven ballad led by frequent vocal collaborator Zoë Johnston. As she did on classic A&B tracks "Love Is Not Enough," "Good For Me" and others, she sings your heart's secrets into timeless gold. It's a happy tune with a melancholic melody, a hushed moment of pure elation that will certainly become a teary-eyed favorite in A&B sets to come.
