Above & Beyond Releases Third Single Off Their Upcoming Album ‘Common Ground’

At the end of last week, Above & Beyond released the third single off their forthcoming album, Common Ground. Released on Anjunabeats “Northern Soul” is devoted to the city of Detroit, one of the most influential cities in music.

“We’ve had ties to Detroit since before we met. Along with the world’s best chrome wheel,  the city gave us all such sweet soul music, Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight, Smokey Robinson and The Miracles, Stevie Wonder and the rest of the legendary Tamla Motown alumni, The Parliaments, Patti Smith, The White Stripes and Eminem – the list is endless. And let’s not forget techno, without whom etc. So we’re all hugely indebted to Detroit” A&B’s Tony McGuinness mentions.


Between Richard Bedford’s empowering vocals and Above & Beyond’s consistency behind them, the new single ‘Northern Soul’ takes listeners to a pleasant place. Even though the mood of the track is soft, the lyrics are fierce and they give credit to those who wander with the right intent.
