Jean-Michel Jarre has shared a new single, BRUTALISM.

The heavy, industrial-leaning techno track conjures up a dystopian aesthetic and serves as the first preview of his 22nd studio album, 'OXYMORE', due out on through Sony Music on October 12. He said:

"That's definitely a heavier track. I wanted to create an apocalyptic mood. Like a kind of big bang of Berlin techno, at the beginning when it was an explosion, that kind of feel, maybe due to the remains of the war."

The ambitious follow-up to 2021's 'Amazônia' will be the first commercial release of its kind, and will arrive alongside an accompanying immersive VR world, Oxyville, which is designed to further enhance the listening experience.

Jarre added: "Oxyville will be a virtual music city, and in the future I will invite other artists to be a part of it, as well as hold masterclasses and other events. I want it to become a sandbox for new music experiences."
