Trance music vet Andrew Bayer has announced Duality, an ambitious double album set for release via his longtime home of Anjunabeats.

Bayer says the upcoming record will run the gamut of the wide spectrum of electronic styles that have shaped his unique sound through the years.

"Since day one, I have always struggled with how to present myself. I love making these experimental home listening albums of electronica and indie sounds, but I also love DJing and making trance bangers," Bayer said in a press statement. "On my last album, I had to remix the album in full after it was released to make the worlds fit. This time around I wanted to capture all the breadth, depth, and tension within that duality under one single project."

The announcement of Bayer's momentous double album aligns with the start of Pride Month. The dance music virtuoso, who is openly gay and married his husband in 2015, joined forces with a bevy of LGBTQ+ collaborators for Duality, including Asbjørn, OLAN, Alison May and Class of 2022 artist Kaleena Zanders. It'll be Bayer's first long-form release since 2019's club remix project In My Next Life.
