A while ago, Anthony Gonzalez warned us that the new M83 record would be more epic than ever, and less sonically optimistic than “Saturdays=Youth” (EMI, 2008). That last part isn’t really clear in the teaser the Frenchmen uploaded to their web page recently, as judging from that one minute, it seems like their new work will reflect the immensity of the asphalt and Mother Earth. No release date has been set for the double album, but it should be sometime in October, and we think this summer they’ll be revealing more details. In the knowledge that Zola Jesus and Brad Laner (Medicine) are collaborating, we’re sure we’ll be talking a lot about M83 in the near future. For now though, watch.
