Budweiser Stage | previously Molson Canadian Amphitheatre
This is it, and like all good things, it must end. Presenting: The Last Goodbye from, Odesza at Budweiser Stage on Thursday, September 1st 2022 with Elderbrook and Gilligan Moss. Grab your tickets to the last and final time you will ever see Odesza together… or is it? The electronic music duo has been on hiatus since the release of their 2017 album, A Moment Apart, but returned for their project with Golden Features in 2020, does The Last Goodbye also signify more? Only time will tell.
Odesza credits the 76-year-old soul singer Bettye LaVette as an artist on the track because they sample her song "Let Me Down Easy." "This song was born out of the concept of trying to bring these lasting, defining musical pieces like the 1965 release of Let Me Down Easy by Bettye LaVette into a modern and contemporary electronic setting," ODESZA said in a statement. "The idea of bringing two worlds together, that at first seem distant, has always been something we’ve been drawn to. It was an absolute honor to be able to work with Bettye’s voice over the course of writing the track," they said. "She’s able to convey emotion with her vocal work unlike any other. To date, this has been one of the more fulfilling songs we’ve had the chance to work on as artists. We hope everyone who listens enjoys the track as much as we did making it."
Fans speculated that ODESZA's last album, A Moment Apart, hinted at their long hiatus, and their latest song title, and their first new music in over four years, The Last Goodbye, has left everyone wondering if an upcoming album from ODESZA could be their "last goodbye" as a duo. The song was released in February 2022, and Odesza announced that their fourth studio album, also called, The Last Goodbye, will be released on July 22, 2022. The EDM duo, ODESZA, formed in 2012 and are from Bellingham, Washington. They are Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight, known individually as Catacombkid and BeachesBeaches.
