The Night Flight Orchestra Release New Track, “Cabin Pressure Drops,” and New Album Teaser Video


The Night Flight Orchestra are modern AOR’s most prolific band… errr, only band… but they’re super-prolific, too. After putting out Sometimes The World Ain’t Enough in 2018 they’ve been back in the studio of late plotting another full album for 2020 release. That after unleashing Amber Galactic, IMO their crowning achievement to date, in 2017. Four years, three albums (on top of two before that!). The boogie don’t stop.

Except when it does. The band are teasing something different this time around, and to whet fans’ appetites they’ve unleashed a single, “Cabin Pressure Drops,” along with a music video of sorts that introduces the concept of the next album. And that concept, explains the band in a statement, is a departure (pun intended) for these skyline warriors:

“So, you thought you knew what The Night Flight Orchestra was all about? You were sure that they were all about good times, boogie-woogie, radio-friendly AOR? Damn, you were wrong. The one thing that has kept those aging Swedish hearts beating for so long is DRAMA! Internal conflicts, external conflicts, rumours and exaggerations.

“Sometime early next year, The Night Flight Orchestra will release their new album. Cabin Pressure Drops is a street opera based upon shattered dreams, broken illusions, and the fact that we are all something much less than the person we were supposed to be. But in the darkness there’s a always a glimmer of hope. And from that glimmer of hope, with the right mindset, you can sculpt and create a whole lot of Swedish classic rock melodrama.

“Most bands are teasing with clips from the studio and interviews with various band members talking about how excited they are about the new material. The Night Flight Orchestra are beyond excited. Therefore, they’ve decided to release a tiny soap opera instead, set against the background of the instrumental “Cabin Pressure Drops,” available on every streaming service near you. 

“The Night Flight Orchestra would like to remind you that this is only the beginning…”

The song is instrumental and serves as more of a background track than anything so there’s not a ton to go on (although it’s typically great for TNFO!), but the video is indeed full of drama and intrigue, as promised. Check out both below and stay tuned for more!
