Four years on from the Grammy nominated, critically acclaimed release Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, M83 re-issues their first three albums in addition to two digital EPs featuring remixes and B-sides from those albums!
After several years of being out of print, M83 (2001), Dead Cities, Red Seas, and Lost Ghosts (2004), and Before the Dawn Heals Us (2005) will be released August 25th, 2014 on CD, vinyl, and digital download via Mute. Dead Cities, Red Seas and Lost Ghosts Remixes and B-sides and Before The Dawn Heals Us Remixes and B-Sides will be available digitally September 9, 2014 on Mute.
Here is a new track from You And The Night. The soundtrack pays tribute to French soundtracks from the 70′s and is much more intimate than Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming and the Oblivion Soundtrack. This score is really for lovers and ghosts.
You And The Night will be available digitally November 19th. A physical release is scheduled for 2014.
Working hard on the upcoming Hollywood Bowl show in September. Really excited about it.
We want to make this show visually very special. Therefore we’re doing this video Contest with Genero, for Intro and Moonchild, two songs dear to my heart, as we need video content for the live visuals.
You can now listen to the Oblivion Soundtrack, Anthony’s collaboration with composer Joseph Trapanese, in full on Mashable here. The CD is available to pre-order in the M83 store here, and on iTunes here.
Wait, is the final episode of the trilogy, the end point of the visual collaboration between M83 and Fleur & Manu that has been ongoing throughout 2012, including the videos for Midnight City and Reunion. Watch it below.
“I love composing music and making music with pictures in my head, it’s really what’s driving me. Cinema is the biggest influence for me – even bigger than music itself, so this album is built as a soundtrack, as an imaginary film. This is what we tried to convey with this trilogy. When I first talked with Fleur and Manu about this video project it was pretty obvious we wanted the same results. I think they were the perfect directors to achieve this…” Anthony
If you cannot view the YouTube video in your country you can watch on Daily Motion here.
