***Hurry Up, We're Dreaming***

Remember how excited you were when you first saw the preview for Spike Jone's Where the Wild Things Are? The imagination. The childlike adventure. The pure and joyful fantasy. The movie promised to take us back to the mystical worlds of our childhood.

Well now you can have it in audio (and superior) format. Like Jone's film, M83's new album Midnight City is a fanciful voyage back to childhood. The 22-track album sweeps listeners away to that world beyond where we all use to dream and play.

Here's a little taste...

We didn’t need a story, we didn’t need a real world
We just had to keep walking
And we became the stories, we became the places
We were the lights, the deserts, the faraway worlds
We were you before you even existed

Carry on, carry on, carry on
And after us the flood
Carry on, carry on, carry on
Our silver horn it leads the way
Banners of gold shine
In the cold, in the cold, in the cold
Footprints of snow
Blind from the road

We carry on, carry on
Follow us, we are one
The battle’s fought, the deed is done
Our silver hum runs deep and strong
Hand to the heart, lips to the horn
Hand on my breast, I’ll keep you warm
