French duo Justice will not be returning to the hallowed decks of BBC Radio 1's Essential Mix this weekend as scheduled.
Their label, Ed Banger, posted the announcement on their Twitter page, citing their busy schedule as reason for the postponement but also said that the mix will drop later this year. "It will be worth waiting for!" they added. "Stay tuned." Germany's own tINI will make her series debut in their place.
The occasion would have marked Justice's first run on the revered radio show in nine years (since 2007, the year they released their celebrated debut album, X), but they have another major milestone waiting for them just one week away: the release of their third studio album, Woman. The LP has been a long time coming for fans who have been waiting for a follow-up to 2011's Audio, Video, Disco. Ed Banger boss Busy P hinted at one back in 2013 during a Reddit AMA, though he didn't confirm the news until last year. So far, they've shared three singles from the new album, "Safe and Sound," "Randy," and "Alakazam."
Woman arrives November 18, and you can read about how its cover art was inspired by avant-garde Scandinavian cuisine.
