Air have announced details for their new album, ‘Le Voyage Dans La Lune’, due for release on 7th February, 2012. This will be their first full-length record since ‘Love 2’ that came out in 2009.

The title of the album came from a 1902 silent film by Georges Méliès of the same name, and was used as a score for a new version of the film shown at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. Au Revoir Simone constructed the lyrics for Who Am I Know? while Seven Stars features vocals Beach House’s Victoria Legrand.

Alongside the full length album, the album is set to feature a limited-edition version of the short film and Air’s original score.
