Fair to say Cosmic Gate have had a pretty charmed start to their milestone twentieth year. The first six months alone have seen the duo serve a brace of Beatport #1s with the MINT-playlisted ‘Come With Me’ and the “profound” (say DJ Mag) “9/10” ranked ‘Need To Be Loved’. January brought word of their first Grammy nomination and further saw the group kick off their Forward Ever, Backward Never tour – one that to date has touched 30 cities worldwide.
Evermore those shows have seen Nic & Bossi introduce IDs from their impending ninth longplayer, but further hard facts on [Forward Ever Backward Never]’s contents have remained elusive. Until now that is! For now, we can give it to you complete & straight – and for fans old & new, it’s gonna make for some mighty fine reading.
The headline: well the album’s nigh – proper nigh! There are less than 30 sleeps to wait, as Aug 23 is drop-day and its tracklist, advance clips and presale are live & kicking this very moment. You can head to your portal of choice (https://bit.ly/32T9K4T) to see what’s what!
20 Years – [Forward Ever, Backward Never] is an LP without precedent – a ‘greatest hits’ the likes of which you’ve never heard before (but more than likely will again!). It lands August 23 and you can presave/pre-order it here.
