The ninth M83 album Fantasy has been released on New Music Friday – check it out here on Live4ever.
Anthony Gonzalez had a clear vision when beginning work on his next M83 record – for it to be, ‘very impactful live’:
“The idea was to come back with something closer to the energy of Before The Dawn Heals Us,” he’s said. “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.”
I wanted to be more present lyrically and vocally even if that was daunting at first. I thought if I could achieve that, this album will be more personal than those that came before.
Fans around the world will be able to judge for themselves when touring begins in Phoenix next month, while a second date at the London Roundhouse has been added in June.
