Forever Now is the tenth studio album released by the British pop musical group Level 42, released in 1994. There were two releases of the album with different track listings and cover art. The first release in 1994 on RCA records has 11 tracks. In 1996, the album was re-released by the label Resurgence, with 15 tracks including six additional tracks, but without the songs "Tired Of Waiting" & "All Over You". Also some of the songs on this version varied in length from those on the RCA release, and the track "Billy's Gone" was completely remixed. The Resurgence album was re-released in 2009 by the label Edsel, as a double CD, bringing "Tired Of Waiting" & "All Over You" back to the track listing again, and also adding extended remixes of "All Over You", "Forever Now", "Learn To Say No" and "Love In A Peaceful World". The sleeve notes for the reissue state that the Resurgence version of the album contained the original intended track listing.
It was the final album release for Level 42 before the original breakup, and was their last album of the 90's to feature the participation of three original members: Mark King, Mike Lindup and Phil Gould. Level 42 released a new album in 2006 named Retroglide with King, Lindup and Gary Husband and a small participation by Boon Gould. Phil Gould, dismayed at what he felt was the record company's ineptitude, did not go on the road with the band on their Forever Now tour. He was replaced for the tour with live session drummer Gavin Harrison, and Jakko Jakszyk rejoined on guitar.
Forever Now is Level 42's best album since the mid-'80s heyday of World Machine and Running in the Family. After a two-album hiatus, drummer Phil Gould returned to the band on what would become its final studio release. The jazzy, horn-drenched title track is the highlight, but there are many solid cuts here, including "Learn to Say No" and the Hall & Oates sound-alike "Love in a Peaceful World."
