Tue, 01 Mar 2016 13:23:59
M83 have announced their new album Junk, and also released the record's first single "Do It, Try It." Junk is the follow up to 2011's Hurry Up, We're Dreaming and is due out April 8th via Mute Records. The band will also be touring extensively in support of the album, with shows currently scheduled across North America, Europe, and Asia.
The album contains 15 brand new tracks. Beck, Mai Lan, Susanne Sundfor, and Jordan Lawlor are all featured on the now Los Angeles-based group's upcoming release. In a statement about the album, Anthony Gonzalez said, "Anything we create today is going to end up being space junk at one point anyway, and I find it really fascinating and scary at the same time – beautiful too in a way. I have this image of pieces of humanity floating in space, lost forever. It also means that nowadays everything goes so fast and everybody is kind of throwing away art in a certain manner. People will listen to an album for instance and just pick a track they like to put on a playlist. They're not going to take the time to listen to an album anymore because they have to jump on the next thing."
