The Grammy Award-winning duo Justice premieres the Susan Sarandon-starring video for their new single, “Fire,” today. The perfect soundtrack for an everlasting summer.
“Fire” is taken from the band’s third studio album Woman out now via Because Music / Ed Banger Records. Woman is the band’s first album in five years and contains ten brand new tracks including singles “Safe And Sound,” “Randy”, “Alakazam!” and “Fire”.
The Director of the video, Pascal Teixera, quotes:
On a hot summer afternoon, Gaspard and I were in Xavier’s kitchen, collectively daydreaming about washing a car. The year we like for car design, the make, where that could take place, how much soap, the mood, the sun, and there should be a woman to go cruising with, an iconic mix of cool, allure and strength. Susan Sarandon of course !
And then a couple months later we’re in the desert, with the car and a lot of soap, and by some weird miracle there she is, even more amazing than we had fantasised her to be, ready to go for a drive.
Woman continues to receive critical praise:
“As focused on cohesion as it is on quality and aesthetics, Woman is a more sensual take on the seminal sound of Justice—Exclaim
“They created a masterpiece with Woman” —The Quietus
“Woman is a triumph in musical escapism” —Earmilk
“Woman is a brilliant return to force that perfectly distills the duo’s vision and sound.” —Billboard
“A set of kaleidoscopic, future-funk bangers”—Entertainment Weekly
“Woman is rawer and more ethereal, ascending to new heights sonically and emotionally.”—W
“Casts a spell that will have everyone headed to the dance floor”—Elle
“Brimming with electrifying energy”—Vice’s THUMP
“Justice manage to remind us why we fell in love with them in the first place.”—Consequence of Sound
“The album is as meticulously conceptualized and designed as anything else bearing the Justice cross.”—Playboy
“A near-perfect disco album” —NME
Labeled by The Observer as “era-defining” in their 5-star review of the album, Justice’s debut LP † was met with widespread acclaim and hit #1 on the U.S. Dance/Electronic Albums chart. Their 2011 follow up album Audio, Video, Disco saw Justice expand upon their distinctive sound by further incorporating their numerous contrasting musical influences. Justice have performed headline shows at festivals and arenas across the globe, as documented by their two live albums: 2008’s A Cross The Universe and 2013’s Access All Arenas.
Woman is out now on digital, CD and vinyl formats through Because Music / Ed Banger Records. The album’s artwork was created by Charlotte Delarue.
