M83 Share “Sunny Boy” Tour Video
M83, aka Anthony Gonzalez, has shared a lighthearted and inspiring tour archive video, shot and edited by Joey Armario, for Fantasy track “Sunny Boy”. The video collates footage of the band on the road and live throughout their 2023 month-plus-long run of tour dates. Full dates for their Fall run are listed below.
M83 also plans to soon release “Mirror,” a hidden track from 2011’s beloved album Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, that has previously never been released digitally and has proved an especially dynamic moment in the recent live sets. More details to come.
For Gonzalez, Fantasy’s direction and aesthetic was immediately clear. “I wanted this record to be very impactful live,” he says. “The idea was to come back with something closer to the energy of ‘Before The Dawn Heals Us’. The combination of guitars and synths is always in my music, but it’s maybe more present on this new record than on the previous ones.”
M83 is the musical vision of French multi-instrumentalist Anthony Gonzalez. Over the span of two decades, he has firmly established himself as an artist whose work transcends mere escapism in favor of full-on worldbuilding. Whether it be via his celebrated studio albums, film soundtracks, or compositions for stage productions, Gonzalez has proven that nothing surpasses his ability to perfectly encapsulate a specific time, emotion, or sense of place.
Initially sparked to inspiration from shoegaze, Gonzalez’ body of work spans and blurs multiple genres and realms, from the synth-laden dream-pop found on Saturdays = Youth to the ambient soundscapes of Before The Dawn Heals Us. He has seen grandiose global success with the Grammy-nominated, platinum-selling Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, that features explosive hit single “Midnight City” His career has also flourished in the film world, where he has soundtracked the silver screen for films like French director Gilles Marchand’s 2011 ‘Black Heaven’, ‘Oblivion,’ Tom Cruise’s sci-fi flick, his brother’s films ‘Knife & Heart’ and ‘You And The Night.’
