In April 2019, world-famous guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela released a new studio album, Mettavolution. The pair then went on a big world tour in support of the record, and the resulting performances led to Mettavolution Live, a new double-album that was announced on Thursday.

Rodrigo y Gabriela had planned to continue touring the world this summer in celebration of the album and their career, only to see the COVID-19 pandemic ruin those plans (as it has so much else). Instead, this live album can serve as a proper commemoration of that epic tour.

Speaking of “epic,” the duo’s acoustic rendering of Pink Floyd‘s “Echoes” was a showstopping highlight on the tour, and a live recording of their performance was premiered along with the album news:

“Hearing this recording is to be able to reconnect with our marvelous fans from our live gigs during 2019,” said Rodrigo y Gabriela in a statement, “the year we got to promote our METTAVOLUTION album all over the world. That was the very moment we felt truly complete as artists and musicians.”
