The 13-track album was recorded at Lamorn’s home studio in Tempe with mau5trap label head deadmau5 assistance in his Canadian studio which lends Forever the air of a master musician passing the torch on to his disciple. It begins impressively with the title track which rockets the listener to a paradisiacal realm through its twinkling, lapidary melody and a vocal of dreamy yearning. “I'm naming the album after this song because it feels like the all-encompassing theme of the rest of the music,” shares Lamorn. “I'm an extremely sensitive person, which comes with its great strengths and terrible weaknesses. All the emotions in my life are so rich. I love so much. The connections I have with my family and friends are truly what I care about, and that's purely where this all comes from. The lyrics in this song tell me to give in to that, and let myself feel those things, because that what truly makes my life great. I never want it to end.”
“To Be Alive” features some of the album's punchiest beats, which, when combined with creamy, falsetto vocals and Lamorn's star-dusted synth arpeggios, catapults listeners to states of ecstatic euphoria. “Who We Are” rides a melody of irrepressible giddiness, which bubbles over a saw-toothed bass synth, midtempo beats, and audacious vocal samples from English singer Millie Turner. “Message” places Lamorn's expressive vocal over a hopeful melody and steadfast, pumping rhythm.
The melancholic “Armed” eases in with a vaguely Boards Of Canada-like intro before a serene vocal loop adds to the hypnotic nature of the main melody, steadily percolating synths, and cushioned 4/4 beats. “Not Alone” builds serious drama with a sinuous melody and excellent dynamics. “This one came before 'Message,' when the anxieties felt more unknown to me. I connected back to all the people I love in my life, who help me so much with my happiness and creativity. They are the ones who always provide me with such a solid foundation to grow and become stronger from all those tough moments.” Another low-key peak is “Where Am I,” a coolly galloping, featherlight house number with vaporous vocal arrangements as luscious as those in 10cc's “I'm Not In Love.”
Forever concludes with “Eleven,” the album's longest track at almost eight minutes and its most extreme tonally, featuring its roughest bass frequencies and most blissful bleeps. The melody carries the air of a bittersweet departure, as moving as Brian Eno's output circa Apollo. It's the grand finale of a debut album that solidifies Lamorn as one of America's most promising young EDM artists.

With a sound defined by both the thrill of the future and potent nostalgia, mau5trap artist Lamorn defies the boundaries of electronic music. At just 19-years-old, Lamorn’s musical prowess knows no limits — he’s a bright-eyed multi-instrumentalist with the world at his fingertips. Those who seek warmth and exhilaration will find a home within Lamorn’s blossoming catalog, a collection of songs marked by radiant melodies and innovative electronic elements. Once Lamorn kicked off his artist project in 2019, his captivating, contemporary sound made its way into the hearts of some of the most notable artists in dance music: Lamorn developed a friendship with deadmau5 thanks to tuning into his mau5trap Mondays live stream and submitting a demo for review. After exchanging music with one another for a couple of weeks, Lamorn submitted a production that moved deadmau5 so much that he decided to sign Lamorn on the spot — this event sparked a professional relationship between the two, resulting in Lamorn’s new home with mau5trap. What’s more, just before becoming involved with deadmau5 and his imprint, Lamorn submitted a remix for ATTLAS’ remix competition for his single “Half Light” featuring Alisa Xayalith — Lamorn won, which landed him a spot on the official remix EP for the single in 2020. To round out the year, Lamorn released an official remix of deadmau5 and Kiesza’s hit single “Bridged By A Lightwave.” In 2021 he released his debut EP Encore to high critical acclaim, followed by a remix of deadmau5 & Foster The People’s “Hyperlandia.” Look for Lamorn’s debut album Forever to be released June 2, 2023 on mau5trap.
