(U.S) Rising UK dance duo Gorgon City has announced the U.S. release of their anticipated debut album Sirens, on October 7 on Priority/Capitol Records.

The duo, comprising of North Londoners Matt and Jye’s seventeen-song collection introduces the duo’s signature production techniques, perfectly marrying stunning performances from their collaborators with the resonance of deep house.

The full-length release is available for pre-order starting today with tracks ‘Ready For Your Love’ ft. MNEK, ‘Here For You’ ft. Laura Welsh and ‘Unmissable ft. Zak Able instant downloads with purchase.

Sirens is a full-bodied musical journey narrated by lush synths, percussive deep bass, and addictive choruses that feature tracks from sultry songstresses Jennifer Hudson and Katy B, as well as buzzing Swedish artist Erik Hassle. It even includes a reworking of Drake’s hit Doing It Wrong.’

Gorgon City burst onto the electronic music scene earlier this year with breakout single ‘Ready For Your Love’ featuring and co-written by MNEK, which went to #4 on the UK Singles chart and garnered praise from the likes of The New York Times and Pitchfork in the States. The pair is one of the most compelling and hotly-tipped new acts in the ever-flourishing landscape of British club pop, and will embark on a 14-date North American tour this October.

Most recently, Gorgon City was the first-ever dance act to be chosen by Vevo, for its emerging artist platform, LIFT in the UK. Specifically for this program, the duo recorded a stripped-down version of their chart-topping second single, ‘Here For You’ featuring Laura Welsh.

The duo’s current single is ‘Unmissable,’ co-written by Jimmy Napes (Sam Smith, Disclosure) and featuring Zak Able.
