M83 Returns To North America With Tour & Album

We've been hearing the new single from M83 on online radio outlet WOXY lately, and after being teased by this early peek of the the new album, we've finally got some confirmed information to share. French artist Anthony Gonzalez, aka M83, will be releasing the "Couleurs" single digitally on February 26, including a remix by Jori Hulkkonen.

The album, Saturdays = Youth, will see the light of day on April 15, which was heavily influenced by the sounds of Tears For Fears and Cocteau Twins. Interesting, right? Gonzalez recorded the album with the help of producers Ken Thomas (Sigur Ros, Sugarcubes, Cocteau Twins, Suede, Clinic) and Ewan Pearson (Tracey Thorn, The Rapture, Ladytron).

The last time M83 took the stage on our shores was in 2005, so we're quite excited to see his return to North America starting in late May. Peep the dates below:
