Triple-Platinum dance music producer Hayden James has announced the release date of LIFTED, his long-awaited sophomore album.

Scheduled to drop on April 8th, LIFTED will be James' first full-length album since 2019's Between Us, which spawned his global hit "NUMB." The record is slated to release by way of James' longtime label, Future Classic. It'll arrive ahead of back-to-back performances at both weekends of Coachella 2022, where he'll join Australian compatriot and Future Classic labelmate Flume.

Check out James' announcement below.

Following his Coachella performances, James is set to embark on an eponymous North American tour. The "Lifted" tour will kick off in early May in Nashville and hit major cities like Brooklyn, Boston and Los Angeles before concluding in mid-June in Vancouver.
