And 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.”
Here’s to the three month wait.
