M83 Announce New Album, Stream New Song

M83’s return just got serious. On Tuesday (March 1), the electronic act announced that their new album will be titled Junk and is set to be released this spring. In addition to the album title and release date, the Anthony Gonzalez-led act premiered the lead single from the track on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show. The new track is titled “Do It, Try It.”

In a press release, Gonzalez had the following to say about the new album and why he chose “junk” as the impending record’s title. “Anything we create today is going to end up being space junk at one point anyway, and I find it really fascinating and scary at the same time – beautiful too in a way. I have this image of pieces of humanity floating in space, lost forever. It also means that nowadays everything goes so fast and everybody is kind of throwing away art in a certain manner. People will listen to an album for instance and just pick a track they like to put on a playlist. They’re not going to take the time to listen to an album anymore because they have to jump on the next thing.”

“Do It, Try It” can be streamed here. Junk is scheduled to be released on April 8 through Mute Records. The track list for the new album as well as M83’s upcoming tour dates can be seen below. Junk is the follow-up to 2011’s much-celebrated Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming.
