Nero‘s got a brand new bag, and regardless of the name, The Night is all about the light. Wedded in both marriage and sonic union, Nero’s Alana Watson and Daniel Stephens have for years now been using their lustrous side project as a way of decompressing from the menacing motifs inherent in their original, Grammy Award-winning act’s core design. However, until recently, The Night was kept in the shadows. Mid-March housed the release of the duo’s first single, “Different Story,” — something of a coming-out track — under the new moniker, via Monstercat.

Now Watson and Stephens return to the Canadian imprint for “Set Me Free.” Watson’s ’80s pop-influenced voice seems to be the only discernible trace of Nero influence evident in the new single, which is brimming with bubbly production. While a slightly cryptic synth interlude snakes between the chorus, the drop is all glossy reverb, animated vocal chops, and even a hint of cowbell for good measure.

After posting a series of cryptic messages on Nero‘s social media accounts, members Alana Watson and Dan Stephens announced they were working on a side project from their hit trio. The two announced they would be producing under alias The Night, and today fans get a first listen at what is to come for Watson and Stephens’ new alias in “Different Story.”

They have released their debut single as The Night on Monstercat, and the track boasts a vibrant sense of groovy funk and pop. They have also announced that fans can expect an EP to follow under the same name as the single, Different Story. If the EP is anything like its title track, this will certainly be a different direction for the producers, but a direction that showcases their wide-ranging production abilities and creativity.

Many know Nero as the darkly dressed drum & bass devotees, who, for more than a decade, have enraptured the electronic scene with their high-powered, ’80s-channeling anthems, like “Two Minds” and “The Thrill.” But now, under the moniker The Night, the trio’s two married members, Alana Watson and Dan Stephens have set out to “tell a different story,” as they indicated in a recent, mysterious tweet.

However, the pair have now confirmed they have a full-length EP, Different Story, set for release in either spring or summer of 2018, via Monstercat‘s Instinct imprint. The new project will create a space for the traditionally shadowy characters to explore smoother dance and synth-pop sounds that would be ill-suited under the nefarious Nero name.

Stephens recently told Billboard that the side project — two years in the making— salvaged his creative energy. Over time, he grew weary of the notoriously dark color palettes ensconcing Nero’s larger-than-life productions. Although now, Stephens says he “feels fresh” divulging back into Nero.

The first of a long list of releases to come, “Different Story,” which Stephens has used to close out a number of Nero DJ sets as of late, can be pre-saved here.

Nero members Alana and Dan announce a ‘different story’

In a post scattered across Nero social media channels, the UK band have made a cryptic announcement.

“For the past decade you’ve stood by our side as Nero. It’s now time to tell a different story.” The post is signed by two of the trio’s members, Dan Stephens and Alana Watson, along with the words “The Night.”

The post appears to point to a new project by the two Nero members, possibly called The Night.

Summer 2017 was big for all three members of the group. Last June, the third member of the trio, Joseph Ray, released a single with Meli under his solo project called “Inside.” Around the same time, Stephens and Watson, who are married, announced that Watson was pregnant last summer and would be taking time off of performing for the remainder of the year.

For now, fans of the supergroup wait with baited breath to see what’s in store for this new endeavor.
