M83 have announced their ninth studio album.

'Fantasy', their first full-length since 2019's 'DSVII', will arrive on March 17 via Other Suns, a label founded by the band's frontman Anthony Gonzalez (pictured). He said:

"I wanted this record to be very impactful live. 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."

As a preview, the Paris-via-Los Angeles group have released the '80s-inspired lead single, Oceans Niagara, an atmospheric, synth-pop offering that taps into their trademark swirling electronics and guitars. Check out the accompanying video, directed by Gonzalez's brother Yann, which introduces a deformed, monster-like figure that appears on the record's cover art. 

Gonzalez added: "Very proud to present the first track of my new album 'Fantasy'. It’s called Oceans Niagara and it’s the very first collaboration between my brother Yann Gonzalez and myself on a music video. I wanted to create this sense of friendship. Listening to that song, I imagine people running, driving fast, or riding spaceships together. It’s this sense of going forward, like a magic potion that you take to discover new worlds. Beyond Adventure!"

M83 will support the record with a US tour in April and May, with European headline shows and festival slots following in the summer. Head below for dates and ticket details.
