Justice have released new track ‘Incognito’ ahead of the release of their forthcoming album, ‘Hyperdrama’.

The track is the third single from the French duo’s highly anticipated fourth album, which is scheduled for release April 26 via Ed Banger Records/Because Music.

It follows the Tame Impala featuring ‘One Night/All Night’ and ‘Generator’, both released upon the album’s announcement earlier this year, with the latter getting a “a robot sex tape-themed” visual last month.

Opening with rolling prog-rock-esque drums, the song jumps into a synth-heavy dance rhythm with chopped choric vocals.

“Like many songs on this record, it switches from all electronic to all human music abruptly, multiple times within its four-minute run” the electronic duo pointed out via a press release.

On their reasoning for this contrast, the pair added “The structure is dictated by what feels good at the moment it happens, without necessarily following any other rule.”

“We had to unlearn everything we thought we knew about song structures, and music in general, when we started working on ‘Hyperdrama’ – which was very refreshing” they concluded.

Though the rest of ‘Hyperdrama’s’ tracklist is still under wraps, rumours have been sparked about a Weeknd collab after the American artist dropped a series of cryptic hints via social media.

The French duo, Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay are set to headline London’s day festival Field Day in August, marking their first live show in the UK in six years.
