M83 has been touring extensively since the release of the album ‘Hurry Up We’re Dreaming’ in October 2011. He has sold out shows across the world, becoming an unstoppable force of musical nature. His recent performance at Coachella won him a whole host of new fans including Katy Perry who tweeted about the show.

M83’s forthcoming ‘Reunion’ EP continues to display M83’s aptitude at writing catchy cosmic-pop soundtracks filled with fantasy and imagination. The single comes with a stunning and diverse remix package of 6 exclusive re-works of the track. Remixes come from Mylo, Sei A, The Naked And Famous, Polly Scattergood, We Have Band and White Sea.

‘Reunion’ is the second single to be taken from the hugely acclaimed fourth album ‘Hurry Up We’re Dreaming’. As well as entering the top 40 in the UK charts for the first time, the double album hit number 15 in the US Billboard charts and topped the electronic and alternative charts.

The first single, ‘Midnight City’, was one of the biggest tracks of the last 12 months, with over six million hits on YouTube to date, an A list at Radio 1, 6Music and XFM, and remains one of the biggest club tracks of the moment across the world thanks to the Eric Prydz rework. With the release of ‘Reunion’, the rise and rise of Anthony Gonzalez’s M83 is set to continue.
