M83 is Los Angeles based French artist Anthony Gonzalez, and Reunion is the second single off of the massive sixth M83 album Hurry Up We’re Dreaming, which continues to display M83’s aptitude at writing catchy cosmic-pop soundtracks filled with fantasy and imagination.
Directed by Fleur & Manu and Produced by DIVISION, ‘Reunion’ is part two of the story that commenced with ‘Midnight City’. Together, these two tracks are the soundtrack for a pack of gifted kids with telekinetic powers who escape from an institution and run wild through a desolate cityscape. In the first video we witness their liberation, with ‘Reunion’ we experience their defiance. Having recently relocated to Los Angeles, the video reflects Anthony’s ongoing love affair with the magical escapism of film and the city itself. The video was released via their official YouTube page on Wednesday.
The single is released with a stunning and diverse remix package of six re-works of the track, by Mylo, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., Sei A, The Naked And Famous, Polly Scattergood, and White Sea.
