Flight Facilities Announces New Album “Forever”, Shares Title Track featuring BROODS
- Australian electronic producer duo Flight Facilities announced their sophomore album “Forever” would be released on November 12, 2021. It is their first album in seven years.
The album comprises of 15-track, featuring guest appearances from Channel Tres, BROODS, Your Smith, BRUX, DRAMA, Jordy Felix and Emma Louise.
From the album, the duo unveiled the title track featuring New Zealand pop duo BROODS.
It was written by Jono Ma, Say Lou Lou, James Lyell, Hugo Gruzman and Georgia Nott.
The accompanying music video was directed by Timothy Lovett.
“Conceived in 2016, it’s no coincidence that this song ended up with its title, because it felt like a lifetime ago that we were haphazardly throwing down vocals in a Los Angeles lounge-room with BROODS,” Flight Facilities said of song. “In a rushed ‘vocal session’, which we unsubtly arranged as an excuse to preload for a night out, we came to realize that we’d captured more magic than first thought. Instrumentally, we drew on acts like The Chemical Brothers, Mylo and Underworld throughout the 5 year process.”
The duo continued, “We even cautiously navigated the dangerous waters of late 2000’s EDM, while using Georgia’s delicate voice to diffuse the ostentation of the sound. ‘Forever ft. BROODS’ feels like the quintessential bridge between our musical origins as Flight Facilities, and our undeniable love of dance music in all its forms.”
The duo said of the new album, “7 years ago, during an interview for the release of our first album Down To Earth, we joked ‘the next one probably won’t be done ‘til 2020’. And somehow, here we are, staring down the barrel of 2022, holding the product of 5 years work. The best way to describe this album is a combination of where we’ve been, where we are, and where we’re going. As true as it was from our first release, the foundations and glue for all our work has consistently been ‘collaboration’. That is exemplified by Jono Ma’s integral role in the final, transformational stages of the album process. While our musical journey has always been an intentional exploration of multiple genres, our hearts and roots lie on the dance floor. We applied that same explorative ethos to this record, taking a concerted delve into the previously untouched niches and eras of dance. It’s been a long time coming, and only the same time will tell if it was worth the wait. That deliberation stems from a strive to make the type of music, which lasts as long as our creative process appears to take….’forever’.”
