Justice Return With New Album ‘Hyperdrama,’ Share Tame Impala-Featuring Single

French electronic duo preview upcoming, hardcore techno-inspired LP with “One Night/All Night” and “Generator”

Justice will return this spring with Hyperdrama, the French electronic duo’s first studio album since 2018.

Ahead of the album’s April 26 release via Ed Banger/Because Records, the “D.A.N.C.E.” duo have shared a pair of new songs, “One Night/All Night” featuring Tame Impala — along with its music video directed by Anton Tammi — and the track “Generator.”

“We wanted this track to sound as if a dark/techno iteration of Justice had found a sample of a disco iteration of [Tame Impala’s] Kevin Parker,” Justice’s Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay said of the single — which also interpolates Jeremy’s hardcore techno classic “Go With the Flow” — in a statement.

“Kevin has a sense of melody that’s fascinating in the sense that he manages to write melodies that feel both simple and natural, but very peculiar at the same time. This song oscillates between pure electronic music and pure disco but you never really get the two at the same time. This very idea of switching instantly from a genre to another within a song runs through the whole record, and is maybe showcased the clearest in ‘One Night/All Night.’”

The hardcore techno vibes continue on Justice’s other new track, “Generator.” “Disco/funk and electronic music at large have always been core elements of the music we make as Justice,” the duo added. “In ‘Hyperdrama,’ we make them coexist, but not in a peaceful way. We like this idea of making them fight a bit for attention.”

Justice — who last released their Grammy-winning Woman in 2016 — are scheduled to appear at both Coachella weekends, their only 2024 U.S. gigs announced so far. Hyperdrama is available to preorder now.
