After the teaser video for the new M83 album, we now have the first tune proper from Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming. It’s not too far away from the big synth dream pop that defined 2008’s Saturdays = Youth except for that big saxophone solo at the end. Lovin’ the artwork too.
Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming is a double album and will be released on October 14th (17th – UK / 18th US). It features guests Zola Jesus, guitarist Brad Laner of ‘ 90’s band Medicine and Saturdays = Youth vocalist Morgan Kibby.
Anthony Gonzales says of the album:
Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming tackles themes of awakening, craving, and conquering, and delves into new vocal territory for M83. I think it is a reflection of my 30 years of being a human being. It’s a compilation of all my previous music together. It’s a retrospective of myself.”
