M83 reveals artwork and tracklist for ‘Junk’

The antagonising wait for electronic dreamer, M83 to make his return with a brand new album is drawing to an almighty close – as Anthony Gonzalez has detailed both tracklist and artwork for his seventh studio album, Junk, alongside airing new single ‘Do It, Try It’.

Tagged with an April 8th release date, Junk (M83’s first full-length release since 2011’s Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming) features an astonishing fifteen tracks, including: ‘Sunday Night 1987’, ‘Laser Gun’ and ‘Do It, Try It’. The latter featured as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in the world on her Radio 1 show last night (March 1st 2016). ‘Do It, Try It’ can be heard below.

The track itself perfectly blends the archaic, well-loved elements of M83 with a new lease of life – found from the eccentric sliding synths and out-of-this-world vocal range. A showcase of pure dance, which is begging for the world to obscure, mix and slot into sets – ‘Do It, Try It’ is the future of M83, and the first taster of what we can expect to discover during the journey of Junk.

As well as airing the first offering, M83 has revealed the peculiar artwork which will front Junk. The warped, Muppet-like artwork can be seen below the Junk tracklist.

Junk, the forthcoming record from M83, is available for purchase on April 8th.
