George FitzGerald announces new album All That Must Be
Double Six and Domino Records present All That Must Be, the second full length LP from British producer George FitzGerald, due for release 9 March. With the announcement, FitzGerald has shared the album’s lead single, Roll Back a collaboration with UK grime artist and Adele & Banks producer Lil Silva.
On the collaboration between himself and Lil Silva; FitzGerald says, “Roll Back is a sad song but there was a lot of joy in making it with Lil Silva. Late night sessions in London and Bedford. Empty trains and night buses home. Things just clicked perfectly in the studio.”
All That Must Be is a record with its psychological roots in two cities - Berlin and London. It documents a period of time when FitzGerald’s decade-long stint in the German capital came to an abrupt end, seeing him back in his hometown of London and becoming a father for the first time.
Featuring collaborations with Lil Silva, Bonobo and Tracey Thorn of Everything But The Girl, All That Must Be plots a route through the landscape, both mental and physical, of its creator over the course of 18 tumultuous months.
“I wanted to mirror the uncanniness you feel when a massive event happens in your life”, explains FitzGerald. “Everything looks and sounds the same but it’s somehow different. Your surroundings are less intelligible."
FitzGerald altered his creative process in the creation of the album, focusing more heavily on the piano as opposed to the computer and combining the electronic drums of previous album Fading Love with live percussion recorded in the studio.
Included on the album is 2017’s single Burns
