NEW REUNION EP OUT NOW WITH REMIXES BY
The Naked And Famous, Polly Scattergood
M83 TO PERFORM
AT AUSTIN CITY LIMITS MUSIC FESTIVAL AND PITCHFORK MUSIC FESTIVAL PARIS
“M83 at its best — vibrant, elegant and unpredictable.”
– The New York Times
“22 tracks of horizon-spanning, unabashedly epic synth rock, a double album
without a wasted moment”
– Pitchfork (#3 Best Album of 2011)
M83 has released the official video for “Reunion” the second single from
Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming.
Directed by Fleur & Manu and Produced by DIVISION, “Reunion” is part two of the story that commenced with “Midnight City.” Together, these two tracks are the soundtrack for a pack of gifted kids with telekinetic powers who escape from an institution and run wild through a desolate cityscape. In the first video we witness their liberation, with “Reunion” we experience their defiance.
Having recently relocated to Los Angeles, the video reflects Anthony’s ongoing love affair with the magical escapism of film and the city itself.

Reunion is the second single off of the massive sixth M83 album Hurry Up We’re Dreaming, which continues to display M83’s aptitude at writing catchy cosmic-pop soundtracks filled with fantasy and imagination. The single is released with a stunning and diverse remix package of six re-works of the track, by Mylo, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., Sei A, The Naked And Famous, Polly Scattergood, and White Sea.
This Fall, M83 will be performing at Bumbershoot and Austin City Limits Music Festival. Tickets are on sale now with stage and set times to follow. Anthony Gonzalez and band recently just wrapped up their second SOLD OUT North American tour and are headed to Europe for several weeks of shows. For a full list of upcoming tour dates, including Hammerstein Ballroom show in NYC on October 2nd, visit ilovem83.com.
Produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Beck, NIN, The Mars Volta, Goldfrapp), mixed by Tony Hoffer (Air, The Kooks), and including contributions from Brad Laner (from 90’s band Medicine), Saturdays=Youth vocalist Morgan Kibby, and guest vocalist Zola Jesus, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming is a double-album journey that takes us to the horizon and introduces us to new landscapes. About awakening, craving, and conquering, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming pushes into new vocal territory for M83. Here we see Gonzalez test out different ways of singing, ranging from a spectral breathy whisper to a howling scream.
“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”, says Gonzalez.
M83 is Los Angeles based French artist Anthony Gonzalez.
