Anthony Gonzalez, the chap behind M83, who released some excellent albums lastdecade, including 2008’s ‘Saturdays = Youth’ and 2003’s ‘Dead Cities, Red Seas and Lost Ghosts’ chatted to Spin about his next album. “It’s a double album. It’s mainly about dreams, how every one is different, how you dream differently when you’re a kid, a teenager, or an adult. I’m really proud of it,” he said from his new home in LA. “If you’re doing a very long album, all the songs need to be different and I think I’ve done that with this one. Overall, it’s pop — and very epic. Anyone who loved M83 before, they’ll love this album even more. People that hated me, they’re going to hate this, too.”

Beck and Zola Jesus are involved in the album, as well as NIN bassist Justin Meldal-Johnsen and Brad Laner from Medicine.
