British production duo Jungle have made their long-awaited return with their third studio album, Loving In Stereo. Full of huge dance-floor tracks that will soundtrack the second half of 2021, the album marks the first time the duo have collaborated with other vocalists, with Tamil-Swiss Priya Ragu and US rapper Bas both featuring on the record.
Having spent the past year working on new music, Loving In Stereo was recorded at The Church in London, where the duo were able to hone in on the sonic realm of the album. The dynamic disco record is a welcomed return to the dancefloor, whether that be in the clubs or your lockdown living room, much like their recent visual for Truth. Throughout the albums rollout, Jungle have teamed up with JFC Productions on every visual, which together form a wider narrative.
Speaking of the record, Jungle share: “We learned to capture the energy of the moment as best as possible without overthinking it. We also realised that our previous albums had a laidback swagger and had never pushed the tempo beyond 120bpm, so this whole level of energy was missing, like we had had a glass ceiling over the project. Our main goal was to let go of perfection and embrace how energetic and real our music could be.”
To celebrate the release, Jungle are launching a global NFT auction with Serenade, comprised of special micro-videos made to accompany each track on Loving In Stereo. The duo are also offering a production masterclass with Jungle's J, and a Loving In Stereo season pass, which grants two people guest list access to an unlimited number of Jungle live shows on the Loving In Stereo tour. The announcement comes alongside the news that the duo will be supporting global superstar Billie Eilish on select dates of her 2022 Happier Than Ever Tour.
