New Music from M83 – “Midnight City”

Written by

M83. In fact, this tweet from KCRW DJ Mario Cotto sums it up:

“…know that feeling of waiting for something and then it comes and you keep telling yourself it can’t be real so you keep touching it? New M83”

French musician Anthony Gonzalez last visited us in 2009, right before a sold out show at Walt Disney Concert Hall. He had moved to LA and was already working on new material, but he certainly made us wait!

Now we know why – the electronic haze-pop artist is releasing a DOUBLE album on Mute records. It’s the follow up to 2008’sSaturdays=Youth”.

Check out “Midnight City”, the first track from M83’s forthcoming album “‘Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming” and download it here.
