A never before released video for Lower Your Eyelids to Die with the Sun premiered on Buzzfeed today…
The video was created to screen at M83’s Hollywood Bowl show in September 2013. Lower Your Eyelids to Die with the Sun is the closing track from M83′s 2005 album Before The Dawn Heals Us, which is being re-released on Monday 25th August, pre-order 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
