Justice Announce Album, Share Video for New Song With Tame Impala: Watch

Justice—the French duo of Xavier de Rosnay and Gaspard Augé—have announced a new album. Hyperdrama, the band’s first new LP in nearly eight years, arrives April 26 (via Ed Banger/Because Music). They’ve also shared two new songs from the album: “One Night/All Night,” featuring Tame Impala, and “Generator.” Check out the video for “One Night/All Night,” directed by Anton Tammi, and listen to “Generator” below.

“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,” the duo said of “One Night/All Night” in a press release. “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.’

Director Anton Tammi said of the “One Night/All Night” visual: “I suggested to them that what if we dive in? What if their music video was a journey inside the cross? 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.”

Of “Generator,” Justice added: “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.”

Justice’s last album was 2016’s Woman, which was followed by a live album, Woman Worldwide. The duo is slated to perform at Coachella in April. See all of Justice’s tour dates below.
