Ever since French dream pop genius, Anthony Gonzalez, released his latest LP, Hurry Up, We're Dreaming, we haven't been able to shut up about M83 or shut off their killer and incredibly timeless tracks. And why should we? Our entire staff voted this record best album of 2011. The brilliant band has been hard at work since this release, not only touring, but crafting yet another surprise for their fans: a single for "Steve McQueen," off aformentioned album, in addition to several remixes— available November 27— with all the tracklist details below. As if you need another reason to binge on M83 on this fine Thursday, we've got a very entertaining one: the official video for "Steve McQueen," directed by Balthazar Auxietre and animated by Sylvain Derosne.
Check out this wild and electric video now, starring a fresh-faced boy in a mustard yellow suit, who dreams of creating the most explosive concert via transistors and transformers. Does it become a reality or are we collectively dreaming? It's hard to tell with M83.
