UPDATE (05/10/2016): Last Friday, on May 6th, it was announced that Acoustic II is set to release on June 3rd. The album is composed of thirteen tracks, the tracklist of which is provided on Spotify. While visiting the tracklist, you will find that the trio has released three mastered tracks for your musical pleasure: “Hello,” “We’re All We Need” and Oceanlab’s comeback track “Another Chance.” Be sure to give them a listen!
When trance music trio Above & Beyond last decided to go on a global tour and perform acoustic renditions of their most celebrated tracks, they took the world by storm. This May, the three are at it again with the Acoustic II World Tour.
Considered by Billboard as “one of the finest and most memorable shows in dance music history,” the first Acoustic Tour in 2013 was performed by the trio alongside vocalists Zoë Johnston, Annie Drury and Alex Vargas, with a surprise supporting act by Skrillex at Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre. Starting on May 5th, Acoustic II will be performed live at hallowed venues like London’s Royal Albert Hall, Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl and Sydney’s Opera House, to name a few.
Since the release of their fourth and latest studio album We Are All We Need, we can expect to hear acoustic arrangements of hits like “Peace of Mind,” “Counting Down the Days” and, of course, the 2016 Grammy-nominated “We Are All We Need.” What does this give us? More acoustic, more sing-alongs, more surprises.
