Peggy Gou’s music is energetic, electric and infectious. Her armies of global fans will now be pleased to hear the South Korean born producer and artist has released her long-awaited debut album I Hear You.

For those who have listened to her iconic (It Goes like) Nanana on repeat through summer 2023, it’s a promise that this album will not disappoint. The 10-track album conjures up more dance anthems that are bound to be summer soundtracks of 2024.

The first track, Your Art throws us straight into a futuristic trance. Peggy recites an edited version of by artist Olafur Eliasson, Your Planet Seen From Within, encouraging us to be present and in the moment. It’s new and unfamiliar and sets us up for the adventure of contemporary and adventurous house we’re about to experience through the rest of the album.

From track two, the mid-section is started with high energy which keeps its stamina throughout the mid-section, introducing fan favourites, I Believe in Love Again with Lenny Kravitz alongside new tracks that will be festival favourites, notably Lobster Telephone and I Go that have fresh and addictive fusions of techno and 90s pop.

The album is rounded off with Peggy’s latest single release 1+1=11, a banger bound to get dancefloors shaking, it’s full of life and a celebration and acknowledgement of embracing the moment. It’s a sign of the high-energy and captivating year that Gou is about to have with fans new and old from this album.
