Almost a year ago, electronic band Nero delivered a sophomore album that reached far and high as one of the best electronic albums to come out of 2015. Alongside albums such as In Colour by Jamie xx and Adventure by Madeon, the Between II Worlds painted a narrative of love and heartbreak by combining the haunting voice and lyrics from Alana Watson with the layered and precise productions from Joseph Ray and Daniel Stephens. Now, news has surfaced that the group might be releasing more music sooner than we anticipated.
Today, the trio’s Twitter handle dropped a cryptic message that ends with the words “coming soon.” Without much context or direction to any other webpage for more information, we can gather that Nero has been up to something since their album dropped last September and are now prepared to reveal their latest efforts. Much like how they teased Between II Worlds with a twenty-eight minute and eight-second track on Soundcloud titled “UPDATE”, the latest message from Nero might show promise for incoming new music in some way, shape, or form.

Nero’s Between II Worlds was the group’s follow-up to their debut record Welcome Reality and spawned huge singles including “The Thrill” and “Two Minds.” It reached number one on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Albums Chart and was the band’s newest material in four years. Even though songs like “Into The Night” and “Dark Skies” were performed in some of their shows before the album was even announced, the lack of releases from Nero left many fans without much to listen to until the single “Satisfy” dropped in May of 2014.
