New M83 Track with Zola Jesus - "Intro"
It's been over a month since M83 released the first single "Midnight City" from his upcoming release Hurry Up, We're Dreaming and since then, we've been eagerly anticipating another taste of the record, which drops October 18th on Mute. Well, that day is finally here. Below you can preview the album's first track, featuring Zola Jesus, the goth synth-pop goddess who is no stranger to chilling electronic beats.
The track offers everything you'd expect for the opening of what promises to be an epic double album. "Intro" begins with a buzzing synth line over whispered voices and gradually builds to a shimmering crescendo, complete with lofty, sustained vocals. Every inch of the sonic space is filled with something, creating an overwhelmingly "big" feeling and foreshadowing the start of a grand album.
