Justice have shared a 30-second clip, purported to be from an upcoming album set for release this year.

The duo – Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay – has shared a clip of a VU meter with a 30-second snippet of new music on socials with the caption of “Happy New Year”.

New music from the pair was previously confirmed by Ed Banger label founder Pedro Winter AKA. Busy P.

During an interview with the radio station France Inter, Winter revealed: “There will be a new album and a new tour in 2024”.

Winter first worked with Justice in 2007 as they released their debut LP, ‘†’ on the Ed Banger label.

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

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

Winter told NME last year; “Listening to ‘Cross,’ I had goosebumps – I loved each and every note of this record, and I have goosebumps when I’m listening to the forthcoming [2024] Justice album, too”.

In 2022, Justice shared a previously unheard original demo of their 2007 classic ‘D.A.N.C.E’ to celebrate 15 years since the album’s release.

The pair last released music in 2016 with ‘Woman’ with this upcoming release set to be their fourth studio album.
