M83: “Midnight City”

m83And so it begins.  I’m already far too excited for the October 18th release date of Anthony Gonzalez aka M83’s double album Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming.  Good thing he’s released a brand new song that you can download for the price of an email or a “Like” on Facebook, starting today.  “Midnight City” is a strobing, squawking masterpiece of dream-pop with plenty of sexy 80’s sax and heavy hitting drum thrusts.  And it’s the loudest I’ve ever heard Gonzalez take his vocals; going from his customary whisper to downright anthemic at the 2:40 mark.  Even with the fade-out, you’ll be left with a sweaty adrenaline rush well after it’s done.

Gonzalez had this to say about Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming:

“I think it is a reflection of my 30 years of being a human being. It’s a compilation of all my previous music together.

It’s a retrospective of myself.”

-Anthony Gonzalez

Here’s to the three month wait.
