Excuse me while I go fangirl about Above & Beyond’s New Album… Scrubs fangirl Above & Beyond Now that I have that out of my system, I can finally settle down enough from this news. Above & Beyond released preorders of their new album, ‘We Are All We Need,’ through the iTunes and Anjuna store. This new album is the return to Trance after their ‘Acoustic’ album was released in January. Two of the tunes we know already are ‘Blue Sky Action’ and ‘Sticky Fingers,’ and now we get the title track of the album ‘We’re All We Need.’ Wondering why there is no preview? Don’t worry, Above & Beyond released a 10 second preview on As you listen to the tune, they ask you to take part in one of the best cover-art ideas ever. Above and Beyond We're All We Need When you connect your Facebook profile to the site you can add your friends and family to the cover art, emblazoning their names across the now customized hand that that makes up the front logo of the new record. While you select your favorite people in the world, the piano piece (preview of their new track) pulls at your heart strings and leaves you wanting more. Above & Beyond continue to blow our minds with new ways of spreading the good vibes their music gives off. For only $3 extra, this is a great addition to your discography.
