Renowned British production duo Gorgon City have released their new single “Never Let Me Down” with Hayley May via Astralwerks. Listen to “Never Let Me Down”
Offering up a club-ready sound of hard hitting house piano and soulful melodies courtesy of rising star Hayley May (featured on Joel Corry’s 2019 Platinum-selling hit “Sorry”), “Never Let Me Down” has all the characteristics of a soundtrack to summer 2021.
The single follows the recent announcement of the duo’s highly anticipated third album Olympia out June 25th, accompanied by a 27-date album tour, which includes Los Angeles’ iconic Shrine Expo Hall on November 5th. Incredibly the hometown show at Printworks sold out in 4-mins, with over 5000 fans snapping up tickets for Gorgon City’s return to the capital.
The duo has now sold more than 40,000 tickets in the UK and US this year, including their grand Back To Love 2-day festival in Finsbury Park on August 7th and 8th. Liverpool, San Francisco & Detroit also sold out instantly upon the release of tickets last week, setting the tone for Gorgon City’s most in demand and ambitious tour to date.
An album shrouded in Greek mythology, Olympia, Gorgon City’s third album, is as grand in scale and ambition as its title suggests. What began in 2019 as a compact, 10-track project has grown into an 18-track opus covering multiple moods and movements. From the sultry slouch of “House Arrest” with Soffi Tukker, to the big-room bridges and drops of the DRAMA – featuring “You’ve Done Enough,” each new addition to Olympia is both a symbol and product of the pair’s unbridled ambitions for what they wanted to be a big record in every way conceivable. The record includes features from an incredible roll call of exciting new talent in the form of Grace Grundy and Aura James, alongside past collaborators Josh Barry, Sofi Tukker and DRAMA.
Formed in 2012, Gorgon City have sold over 10 million singles and clocked up over 1.5 billion streams. While the duo are no strangers to chart success with hits such as “Ready For Your Love,” their sound is rooted deep in club culture and made for live shows. Many songs get road tested in clubs before being put onto an album.
The live setting is where the duo truly thrives – 2019 saw amazing sets around the world including Coachella, EDC Vegas and Israel’s Get Lost Festival, as well as sold-out shows from iconic UK venues such as Printworks, Warehouse Project and Tobacco Dock.
The fans’ demand for Gorgon City’s return to the clubs is undeniable. This September, the duo will embark on some of their biggest and boldest shows to date, with the driving force being Olympia.
