This is set to be the fourth studio album from the duo, and their first release since 2016’s ‘Woman’.

Last year, Justice shared a previously unheard original demo of their 2007 classic ‘D.A.N.C.E’, to celebrate 15-years since the release of their seminal debut record ‘†’.

Composed as an “opera disco” album, ‘†’ – or “cross” – is renowned for its use of sampling including 400 pieces of audio layered throughout the 12-track record.

Originally released on Ed Banger, ‘†’ went on to be certified gold in the UK, selling 100,000 copies, and received a GRAMMY nomination for Best Electronic/Dance Album.

As well as this, one half of Justice, Gaspard Augé released his solo album in 2021 titled ‘Escapades’.
