French producer Madeon's prepping his debut LP, Adventure, for release on March 31. The album finds Madeon expanding the gauzy EDM textures explored by the likes of Porter Robinson to include even brighter, more aggressive (and friendly!) sounds; contributors include Mark Foster of Foster the People, Bastille—and Passion Pit's Michael Angelakos, who contributes vocals to the toothsome "Pay No Mind." "'Pay No Mind' is one of the earliest tracks I wrote for the album," Madeon said in an email to FADER. "I've been a huge Passion Pit fan for years so they came to mind right away. I wanted some extra guitars on the song and reached out to Sam from Two Door Cinema Club (I met them after producing their last single). It's one of those songs that came together very naturally. I love it because it reflects a lot of my influences, from electronic sounds to 70's Wurlitzer keyboards."
