Justice Announces New Album “Hyperdrama”, Premieres New Song “One Night/All Night” with Tame Impala on BBC Radio 1
French electronic music duo Justice, consisting of Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay, has announced that their fourth studio album “Hyperdrama” will be released on April 26, 2024.
The album is their first body of work in eight years since the 2016 album “Woman” and comprises a 13-track.
From the album, the duo premiered a new song “One Night/All Night” on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Clara Amfo on January 24, 2024.
On the track, the duo teamed up with Australian psychedelic music project Tame Impala.
The track was written by Gaspard Augé, J. C. J. Hanneman, Kevin Parker, and Xavier de Rosnay. Produced by Justice.
The accompanying music video was directed by Anton Tammi.
The duo said of the song in a statement, “We wanted this track to sound as if a dark/techno iteration of Justice had found a sample of a disco iteration of Kevin Parker. Kevin has a sense of melody that's fascinating in the sense that he manages to write melodies that feel both simple and natural, but very peculiar at the same time. This song oscillates between pure electronic music and pure disco but you never really get the two at the same time. This very idea of switching instantly from a genre to another within a song runs through the whole record, and is maybe showcased the clearest in 'One Night/All Night.'”
- The duo released another song “Generator” from the album on the same day.
The track was written by Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay. Produced by Justice.
The duo said, “To us, this one sounds like “Getaway” by the Salsoul Orchestra, but with gabber and classic 90s hardcore techno sounds. Disco/funk and electronic music at large have always been core elements of the music we make as Justice. In Hyperdrama, we make them coexist, but not in a peaceful way. We like this idea of making them fight a bit for attention.”
