Cue the heavy breathing for Above & Beyond fans. The trio has announced a new album titled Common Ground.

There aren’t many details on Common Ground, but it will be released in January 2018, three years to the month after We Are All We Need was released. It will follow previous albums Group Therapy and Tri-State, plus two Acoustic albums.
Two songs from the album have been revealed. The instrumental “Tightrope” and their new single with Zoe Johnston premiered at Electric Zoo, “My Own Hymn.” They recently performed at Red Rocks and The Gorge for ABGT250 and premiered a few songs there.
The two announced shows thus far are big ones for the group. They will perform at the Los Angeles Convention Center on December 29th and then Barclays Center in Brooklyn on January 27, 2018. They already did Madison Square Garden for AGBT100 in 2014.
