News: M83 unveils album cover for ‘Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming’
M83, aka Anthony Gonzalez, has revealed the cover art for his upcoming double album. With the first single “Midnight City” hitting the top spots on Hype Machine, Twitter and most blogged about track the day it was announced, ‘Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming’ is set to be the album that defines M83.
The new album follows 2008′s acclaimed album ‘Saturdays = Youth’, which made many end of year lists including Mojo and Drowned In Sound (who made it their number one album that year). ‘Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming’ is a double album that brokers a brilliantly effective accord between the ostensibly conflicting demands of commercial pop and experimental rock, and packs some truly giant tunes.
The album title is also a neat summary of the record’s twin tempers – urgent and introspective – and of Gonzalez’s dual identity as dancefloor enthusiast and solipsistic muser. ‘Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming’ is an ambitious and impressive album that singles Gonzalez out as an artist at the pinnacle of his career. And like all great pop music, it’s packed with fantastic songs that are also meaningful pieces of art, taking experimental music to the masses.
