Fred again.. Announces New Album, Drops First Single

||, |, ,

We finally have a release date for one of our most anticipated albums of the year! British producer Fred Again..¬†announced that his long-awaited album Actual Life 3 (January 1 – September 9 2022)¬†will be released October 28. To tide us over, he also dropped a new single “Danielle (smile on my face).”

Whereas Fred Again..’s earlier releases from this year were heavy summer bangers, “Danielle” is moodier, although still high energy. This new track takes its name from 070 Shake‘s real name, as it heavily samples her song “Nice To Have.” This was already one of our favorite 070 Shake tracks, and Fred again elevates it to a whole new level by pairing it with a powerful, driving UKG-leaning rhythm.

Despite hearing this track teased in his now iconic Boiler Room set a few months ago, we’re actually glad Fred again.. didn’t release this until now. The warm, shimmering synth textures, combined with the introspective nature of 070 Shake’s lyrics, give the song the perfect autumnal vibe.

October 28 can’t come soon enough. Until then, we’ll be listening to this song on repeat. Make sure to check it out below, enjoy!

Fred again.. – Danielle (smile on my face)
