The UK producer's second full-length features more of a focus on the piano, with collaborators including Bonobo and Lil Silva.
FitzGerald's second LP, after 2015's Fading Love, All That Must Be is described as a more piano-focused work that has its "psychological roots" in both Berlin and London. It documents a span of time in which he made an abrupt move out of Berlin (his place of residence for ten years), returned to his hometown of London and became a father.
"I wanted to mirror the uncanniness you feel when a massive event happens in your life," FitzGerald says. "Everything looks and sounds the same but its somehow different. Your surroundings are less intelligible."
The ten-track album includes last year's single "Burns," the first original material he'd released since Fading Love, and it features some collaborators: Bonobo, Lil Silva, Tracey Thorn and Hudson Scott.
FitzGerald is also gearing up for a live tour alongside his band. They'll play across the UK and Europe in March, and North America later in 2018.
