Space-age, future pop master M83 -- born Anthony Gonzalez -- makes his return to Singapore after his 2012 Laneway Festival date.
Following the success of critically acclaimed album 'Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming', featuring platinum selling single 'Midnight City', M83 is on the verge of another epic full-length release. Gonzalez describes his forthcoming album as “more fun and fresh” with “a lot of eclecticism,” promising plenty of “unexpected guests.”
Other standout tracks like 'Outro' and 'Wait' from 'Hurry Up' also became pop-culturally ubiquitous, taking on a life of their own as musical accompaniment for numerous TV shows and Hollywood blockbuster trailers.
Over the past few years, Gonzalez has become in demand as a soundtrack composer for hire, clarifying the promise of M83’s already cinematic sweep in actual movie theaters with scores for 2013’s Tom Cruise sci-fi blockbuster 'Oblivion' and his brother Yann’s 2014 directorial debut 'You and the Night'.
New original M83 tracks also received prominent placement in the soundtracks to the hit film series 'Divergent'. 2016 will see a new album and more touring around the globe for M83.
