    Electronic music sensation Madeon has released a brand new track, "Home," as part of the countdown to his upcoming debut album Adventure, due out March 31.

    It is the very first song the French artist has released that features his own vocals.

    Madeon explains how "Home" was written and describes his creative process as "this thing that I do frequently, where I lock myself in the studio for 24 hours. I wake up in the morning, have a cup of coffee, start a clock and I have a countdown of 24 hours. I don't leave the room and I have to write three original songs from scratch. It's very, very intense, very physical, because sleep deprivation kicks in."

    Um, yeah...

    He continues, "Sleep deprivation shuts down a few sections of my brain, it makes me feel like I'm floating. It's the closest thing to drugs that I would do. I start doing things and it’s no longer ideas going through the brain to the body to communicate with the studio, it's like all melting together a little. I like it, actually. And it's very intense emotionally, because you can never stop, you have to work non-stop."

    Madeon finished, "The last track on the album, 'Home,' was written that way. 16th or 17th hour, sleep deprivation had started to impact, I was just in that exhaustion phase and I started feeling incredibly vulnerable and incapable of writing music. So I wrote a song about that kind of feeling, about giving up. And because I was alone in the studio and I have to finish it, I sang on it myself: I'm not a singer, but it was interesting and touching to have those fragile, vulnerable vocals on there."

    Wow, that sounds crazy! We get cranky, not creative, when sleep-deprived. With all this in mind, enjoy the song.

    Did you go "Home" with Madeon?
