Above & Beyond release their long-awaited collaboration with anamē, ‘Gratitude’ feat. Marty Longstaff) on April 14 through Anjunabeats!
This collaboration marks the debut of anamē: a new alias from Swedish hitmaker Marcus Schössow and production partner Thomas Sagstad. ‘Gratitude’ also marks the return of Sunderland singer-songwriter Marty Longstaff to Anjunabeats, the voice of Above & Beyond’s ‘Tightrope’ and ‘Flying By Candlelight.’
Debuted during Above & Beyond’s sold-out London festival at The Drumsheds in 2021, ‘Gratitude’ is both a jubilant vocal ballad and a tough, dancefloor filler. During Above & Beyond’s winter tour, which sold nearly 70,000 tickets across the USA, the significance of this record to the group’s dedicated fan community was immediately apparent. It has cemented itself as a future classic for Jono, Tony, and Paavo, standing alongside some of their best-loved anthems like ‘You Got To Go’ and ‘Thing Called Love’, whilst also putting the new project of anamē firmly on the map with their debut release.
Marcus Schössow’s production resumé is extensive: he’s collaborated with all three members of Swedish House Mafia, as well as Bassjackers, and has released on Revealed Records, Spinnin’, SIZE, Armada, and Axtone.
More commonly found performing under the moniker The Lake Poets, Marty Longstaff rose to prominence with the moving acoustic ballad ‘Shipyards’. The song accompanies the opening credits to the sleeper hit Netflix documentary, ’Sunderland ’Till I Die’.
Above & Beyond has announced a string of major festival events for 2022 in London, Los Angeles and at The Gorge Amphitheatre, WA, as anamē will join Above & Beyond at Group Therapy Weekender London and Anjunabeats Europe in Poland this Spring. For tickets visit aboveandbeyond.nu
