M83 will release new album ‘FANTASY’ on March 17th.
The French project will return this year, with songwriter Anthony Gonzalez continuing his aesthetic evolution. Out on March 17th, new album ‘FANTASY’ taps into the energy of M83’s live performances, while retaining the pointed songwriting of his earlier work.
His first record since ‘DSVII’ in 2019, the songwriter comments:
“I wanted this record to be very impactful live. The idea was to come back with something closer to the energy of ‘Before The Dawn Heals Us’. The combination of guitars and synths is always in my music, but it’s maybe more present on this new record than on the previous ones.”
New song ‘Oceans Niagara’ is online now, a dynamic return with a real sense of physicality. M83’s electronic flair remains intact, while the visuals pair the songwriter alongside brother Yann Gonzalez.
“Very proud to present the first track of my new album ‘Fantasy’. It’s called Oceans Niagara and it’s the very first collaboration between my brother Yann Gonzalez and myself on a music video. I wanted to create this sense of friendship. Listening to that song, I imagine people running, driving fast, or riding spaceships together. It’s this sense of going forward, like a magic potion that you take to discover new worlds. Beyond Adventure!”
Tune in now.
