M83’s track ‘Midnight City’ has gone GOLD!

We at scrink.com have been huge fans of M83 for many years and so it is with great happiness that we share this announcement from Mute Records.

Mute is proud to congratulate M83 on their first FIRST RIAA-CERTIFED GOLD SINGLE for “Midnight City” off of their sixth studio release, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming. Currently, M83 are enjoying their summer with a tour throughout Europe but they will be back in the states starting on August 1st with a show at Philadelphia’s Electric Factory.

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.
