Rodrigo y Gabriela’s eagerly awaited follow-up to 2019’s Mettavolution and first full-length collection in four years, In Between Thoughts...A New World arrives as one of the duo’s most revelatory offerings yet - a spontaneously composed unified work primed to bring about the same expansion of consciousness that inspired its creation.

Self-produced by Rodrigo y Gabriela at their studio in Ixtapa, Mexico, the album - which sees the guitar duo expanding their traditional approach to include inventive electronic and orchestral elements - was heralded by the first single, “Descending To Nowhere”, available now at all DSPs and streaming services. An official music video, directed by acclaimed Mexican filmmaker/broadcaster Olallo Rubio, can be viewed below.
