Groove Armada have shared visuals for Lover 4 Now after their new album Edge Of The Horizon was confirmed for release on October 2nd.
“I wrote the treatment as New York was shutting down to handle the coronavirus outbreak,” the video’s director Fons Schiedon says. “For weeks, the city remained eerily quiet, except for the frequent sound of ambulances. An audio recording of that soundscape taken from my roof is what the video opens with. From the isolation of a smallish apartment, and my improvised studio now squeezed into a corner of the bedroom, the doomy future scenarios just kind of wrote themselves.”
Lover 4 Now boasts a guest contribution from Todd Edwards, following on from the LP’s lead single Get Out On The Dancefloor which featured Empire Of the Sun frontman Nick Littlemore; more collaborations are coming up on the LP from the likes of Paris Brightledge, She Keeps Bees and James Alexander Bright.
