The Freemasons have a new single coming out.
It’s called “Believer,” and it features the fabulously talented Wynter Gordon on vocals. The song is an absolute monster in its original form (the “Summer of Pride Mix”), clocking in at just over nine minutes long.
Featuring scorching summer synthesizers fit for the crowded dance floors of Ibiza, layers of angelic vocals, and a chord progression faintly reminiscent of Madonna‘s “Get Together,” “Believer” isn’t just your standard, mindless unts-unts club stomper: It’s something special–a sublime, cooing work of lust and ethereal trance.
There’s also a moaning chanty bit that vaguely recalls the tail-end of the chorus to Gaga‘s “Bad Romance.” Whoa-oh-oh-oh!
The song is not only another guaranteed smash from the Freemasons, but Gordon’s finest release thus far.

“Believer” is also intriguing in that it’s being released on August 15, which comes only weeks after its final mastering. From the press release:
Defying convention the single will be made available worldwide on iTunes, Beatport, Juno and other download platforms almost immediately after being completed. â€œWeâ€™ve only recently finished the record and we just wanted to get it out there to the fans as we know they have been waiting a while for a new singleâ€ explains Russell Small from Freemasons.
I’ll be quite interested to test a personal hypothesis and see if officially releasing a song for purchase almost immediately after its recording/leak leads to improved sales figures. I sure hope so!
“Believer” is the lead single from The Freemasons’ upcoming studio album, due out in early 2011.
