Air revealed details to their next LP today: Le Voyage Dans La Lune, an 11-track effort inspired by the work composing an original score to director Georges Méliès’ 1902 film by the same name (also known as A Trip to the Moon in English). Featuring guest performances by Victoria Legrand of Beach House and Au Revoir Simone, Nicolas Godin offered up the following teaser description:
A Trip to the Moon’ is undoubtedly more organic than most of our past projects. We wanted it to sound ‘handmade,’ knocked together’, a bit like Méliès’ special effects. Everything is played live … like Méliès’ film, our soundtrack is nourished by living art.
The French duo’s follow-up to 2009’s Air 2 is set to arrive on February 7 of next year, complete with a limited edition that includes a DVD of the film set to their original score. In the meantime, check out the album cover above and full tracklist below:
