By Andrew Bayer & Run Rivers
Andrew Bayer releases the third single taken from his upcoming double album ‘Duality’ on Anjunabeats, ‘Chaos’ with Run Rivers.
Taken from the more downtempo ‘‘Duality’ Part 1, ‘Chaos’ is the epitome of Andrew Bayer’s leftfield experimental side. Featuring UK singer-songwriter Run Rivers, who has previously worked with DJ Shadow and Tinlicker, ‘Chaos’ is a nod to Andrew Bayer’s musical roots with a healthy injection of Talking Heads-esque energy.
Two musical threads weave through the collected works of Andrew Bayer. One thread gave us the downtempo masterclass of 2013’s ‘If It Were You We’d Never Leave’ and the brilliant 'In My Last Life' LP. The other thread produced arena-sized anthems like 2014’s ‘Once Lydian’, his epic 'Super Human' with Asbjørn, and the club remix project 'In My Next Life'.
‘Duality’ brings these two creative threads together under one album for the first time since his debut album 'It's Artificial'.
“Since day one, I have always struggled with how to present myself. I love making these experimental home-listening albums of electronica and indie sounds, but I also love DJing and making trance bangers. On my last album, I had to remix the album in full after it was released to make the worlds fit. This time around I wanted to capture all the breadth, depth, and tension within that duality under one single project” - Andrew Bayer
Crafted over three years, ‘Duality’ features an eclectic cast of collaborators old and new. ‘Duality’ pt. 1 explores Bayer’s passion for downtempo and indie-pop, while ‘Duality’ pt. 2 takes on his forward-thinking trance and progressive sound.
“‘Duality’ is the true follow-up to my first album ‘It’s Artificial’. It is by far my most raw and honest work, and I can’t wait to celebrate the album around the world with you all on tour” - Andrew Bayer
‘Duality’ pt. 1 lands on August 12, with pt. 2 following on October 28. Pre-order now via the Anjuna Music Store.
