Since the release of 2011’s Hurry Up We’re Dreaming, triumphant electronic project M83 has been everywhere. In addition to producing the totally ubiquitous Midnight City, the band has provided the soundtrack for the swelling emotional peaks of roughly half of the movies you’ve seen in the past two years. The French group, helmed by the outrageously talented Anthony Gonzalez, announced recently plans to reissue the first three M83 albums, all of them previously out of print. 2001’s M83, 2003’s Dead Cities, Red Seas, and Lost Ghosts and 2005’s Before The Dawn Heals Us will get the reissue treatment from Mute on August 25, followed by two compilations of B-sides and remixes from the latter two albums on September 9.
Today, the band has also unveiled a brand new music video for Before The Dawn Heals Us closing track, Lower Your Eyes To Die With The Sun, arguably one of the tracks which first attracted people to the band. The gorgeous music video seems to depict the immediate aftermath of a car accident in extreme close-up and extreme slow-motion. Basically, it is mostly footage of stuff crashing, flying and blowing up in slo-mo, which is kind of what you already picture when you listen to M83, right?
Check out the video, and the tracklists for the remix and B-side compilations, below.
