Justice announce their fourth studio album, Hyperdrama

25 January 2024, 09:48 | Written by Tyler Damara Kelly

Justice have announced their forthcoming fourth studio album, Hyperdrama, and share two brand new singles.

Hyperdrama follows on from Justice's 2018 release, Woman Worldwide, as well as Gaspard Augé's foray into solo music, and the duo reissuing their debut album in celebration of its 15th anniversary.

Speaking of the brand new single, "One Night/All Night" which stars Tame Impala's Kevin Parker, the band says: "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 official video for "One Night/All Night", produced by Phantasm and directed by Anton Tammi also reveals the artwork for the forthcoming album, “I suggested to them that what if we dive in? What if their music video was a journey inside the cross?” states Tammi. “I dreamed of creating a piece like this. A strange and experimental object that looks like rave lighting inside human lungs and strobe light around a human heart.”

“To us, this one sounds like “Getaway” by the Salsoul Orchestra, but with gabber and classic 90s hardcore techno sounds," the band continue, discussing the second single, "Generator". "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.”

Hyperdrama will be released on 26 April via Ed Banger Records / Because Music.
