M83 announces new album

M83’s Anthony Gonzalez has announced the project’s fifth album, the follow-up to 2008’s ‘Saturdays = Youth’, will be a double album of ‘epic pop’.

He told SPIN: “It’s mainly about dreams, how every one is different, how you dream differently when you’re a kid, a teenager, or an adult. I’m really proud of it. If you’re doing a very long album, all the songs need to be different and I think I’ve done that with this one. Overall, it’s pop – and very epic. Anyone who loved M83 before, they’ll love this album even more. People that hated me, they’re going to hate this, too”.

So, that’s that sorted then. Song and album titles aren’t confirmed as yet, but the album will feature Zola Jesus, Brad Laner from Medicine, plus Beck and Nine Inch Nails’ bassist Justin Meldal-Johnsen.
