Above & Beyond have announced a new album Flow State that is created for yoga and meditation. The record features 14 new original songs and three older ones remastered for Flow State.
Above & Beyond have been pushing yoga to their listeners for quite some time. At big shows like multi-day Group Therapy events or Anjunabeach, they often play a yoga set in the morning. However, the journey for this album started at Burning Man in 2014 with a sunset yoga set for Robot Heart, guided by renowned yogi Elena Brower.
“Our music has always been about getting in touch with, and understanding and accepting our emotions. After those amazing yoga sets, we realized that there is a bigger place for this more reflective music within our little universe,” explains Above & Beyond’s Paavo Siljamaki in a statement.
“With the Flow State project, we want to help bring people's attention and focus towards helping themselves find better mental fitness and overall happiness in life,” adds Siljamaki. “Through raised awareness, being more present, one can reach a state of flow: a creative and free state of mind where time, fear and stress dissipate.”
At 49 minutes, this should be able to guide your next mediation or yoga session. Or if you need help relaxing or sleeping, this should do the trick as well.
Flow State will be released on July 19 and can be pre-ordered here in digital and vinyl versions. To help push the album, they have released a sampler, which includes “Sun In Your Eyes,” “Small Moments” and a new song “Believer.” Check out the sampler below or here.
