THE Agnes has a new album out?! An actual album? It’s been a long time coming. Nine years since her last studio album, ‘Veritas’. A period of complete silence and artistic discovery came about thereafter. Then the work started, before the first fruits of that new burst of creativity were finally birthed via the ‘Nothing Can Compare’ EP. Her sound has been stepped up even further via her most recent singles. And now comes the album that a lot of people have been waiting for. ‘Magic Still Exists’.
What’s on it? 11 tracks. Three previously released singles (‘Fingers Crossed’, ’24 Hours’ and ‘Here Comes The Night’), four intros/interludes, and four brand-new tunes.
What’s the album all about? A collection of beats to get lost in and mantras to live by. 2am dance floor highlights sit alongside 7am post-club ponderings. It’s about awakening, acceptance and aspiration. It bangs and then it breathes new ideas into your mind. It’s an admirably unique album that pop fans are going to look back upon in years to come and recall: remember when Agnes did *that*? And it’s arrived today for you to be on that correct side of history amongst those who had it as the soundtrack to their lives, right here and right now. What a time to be alive!!!
What are the new songs like? XX’ is the statement on intent on who Agnes is as an artist now. ‘Love And Appreciation’ is a celebration of the classic disco that inspired her new direction. ‘Selfmade’ is the very epitome of this new genre that Agnes herself has coined and called spiritual disco. And the title track – ‘Magic Still Exists’ – is the show-stopping encore, her very own ‘Thank You For The Music’.
What does Agnes say? “‘Magic Still Exists’ is a collection of epiphanies about what it means to be human and our need to constantly search for something bigger, something more. The album was made together with friends and the process has therefore been very intimate. Something that made me relax, let go and have fun with it. Mixing spiritual lyrics with disco felt both tempting and necessary. Disco is freedom, to express oneself and not be ashamed. But the music was also something I needed to do to grow spiritually and strengthen myself. It was an opportunity to take what I have within me, multiply it and just play with it.”
