A few months ago NPR captured M83’s performance at the historic 9:30 Club – including the new single “Reunion” and the commanding/addictive “Midnight City.”

The music transports you back exactly to where you want to be- glowing, bathed in beautiful sound and contagious elation.

It’s the magic of M83 LIVE-traveling to a world made of dreams-where anything is possible.

M83 is Los Angeles based French artist Anthony Gonzalez.

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.
