The album was originally slated for production in 2020 as a follow-up to The Zombies’ 2015 record, Still Got That Hunger, but due to the pandemic, the album release was delayed until 2023. The band members all agreed that they wanted to record together, in person, for the best sound possible. Read more about the release HERE at Rolling Stone.

And, always innovating new ways to superserve the needs of their hardcore music-loving audience, the Qobuz Live series is just one part of Qobuz’ strategy to provide a “boutique in a superstore world” experience for its customers. Earlier this month, Qobuz presented an intimate series of live-to-record sessions in Austin for SXSW featuring artists such as Caramelo Haze, Miss Grit, Shana Cleveland, Yazmin Lacey, and more. Later this year, all eight sessions will be released as Hi-Res EPs only on Qobuz. Other Qobuz exclusive releases over the years have included music from Dinosaur Jr., Circuit des Yeux, Makaya McCraven, Frank Zappa, and Christian McBride, who recorded and released an exclusive EP on Qobuz in 2021, and who currently serves as Qobuz’ Artist-Approved Sound Spokesperson. Qobuz’ other features that cannot be found anywhere else include exclusive editorial, PDF booklets, curated playlists, and more.
