M83 Planning New Remix EP, Post Mylo’s Take on ‘Reunion’ From the Disc
Hot on the heels of scoring their first U.S. Modern Rock Top 10 hit with ‘Midnight City,’ French electronic dream popsters M83 have chosen ‘Reunion’ as the second single from their double album ‘Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming.’ The song will be released on a new EP due May 8.
The EP is actually what was once called a maxi single. It has seven tracks, but those tracks are the album version of ‘Reunion’ along with six remixes of the song. The list of artists the band recruited to remix the track, though, is pretty impressive. The Naked and Famous and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. each take a whack at the song, and two Scottish producers get a turn as well: newcomer Sei A, and Mylo, who released the wonderfully moody electro-funk album ‘Destroy Rock & Roll’ in 2006 but has not released an album since. He’s as like-minded a remix partner as M83 is likely to find.
The band has also added two dates to their mostly sold out North American tour, penciling in a warm-up show in Pomona, Calif., the day before their first appearance at Coachella, and they have signed up to perform at Montreal’s Osheaga Festival, though that date has yet to be determined.
