The rapidly approaching new year is already shaping up for drum & bass fans after Delta Heavy committed to releasing their third studio album, Midnight Forever.
The versatile duo’s upcoming full-length is a culmination of their multi-year saga thus far. Embracing the eternal enchantment of UK nightlife, the duo are calling the forthcoming effort an ode to the drum & bass genre. While details remain sparse at the moment, Midnight Forever promises to elevate the Delta Heavy’s prevailing reputation for intricate songwriting and flawless production, diving deep into every aspect of the genre they’ve been instrumental in popularizing, especially over the last handful of years.
“Whilst we don’t want to give too much away at this stage we are thrilled to announce that our third album is coming next year,” Delta Heavy exclusively tells EDM.com. Midnight Forever represents everything that has taken us to this point: every club, festival and rave; every hour in the studio whether frustrating or fruitful; every high and low on this wild journey.”
“This album is a tapestry not only of all our different musical influences, but of all the personal experiences that have shaped our path,” they continued. “Whilst in the past we’ve experimented with various genres, Midnight Forever is our ode to the genre of drum & bass, a love letter to the music that stole our hearts as a couple of underage teenagers braving the London scene.”

Delta Heavy also say the writing process for the album has been something of a cathartic release from the monotony of the everyday.
“We’ve both been through a lot in the past few years and writing this album has actually felt cathartic. Beyond simply a collection of songs we’ve sought to create a world where the night never ends, a place to escape whether it’s introspection at home or hedonism on the dancefloor,” they explained. “Midnight is a time of magic and mischief, and the start of a new dawn. We are immensely proud of the music on this album, and we can’t wait for everyone to experience this with us. The complicated world we live in may spin on, but in Midnight Forever, we hope time stands still.”
The hotly anticipated release follows Delta Heavy’s impactful 2016 debut, Paradise Lost, and 2019’s Only In Dreams. The lead single from Midnight Forever, the aptly titled “Get Down Tonight,” drops this Friday, November 17th.
