M83 hit it big back in 2011 with their sixth album Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming and its ubiquitous single “Midnight City.” Now, half a decade later, the electronic band fronted by Frenchman Anthony Gonzalez, is back with their new album Junk. Complex included the album in our 50 Most Anticipated Albums of 2016 list at No. 44.
“Anything we create today is going to end up being space junk at one point anyway, and I find it really fascinating and scary at the same time – beautiful too in a way,” he told UK news outlet The Upcoming. “I have this image of pieces of humanity floating in space, lost forever. It also means that nowadays everything goes so fast and everybody is kind of throwing away art in a certain manner. People will listen to an album for instance and just pick a track they like to put on a playlist. They’re not going to take the time to listen to an album anymore because they have to jump on the next thing.”
