Air - Le Voyage Dans La Lune


Air are set to release their new album 'Le Voyage Dans La Lune' on February 6th.
Air have always had a keen interest in cinema. The French duo soundtracked 'The Virgin Suicides' but have also maintained a number of less high profile cinematic projects along the way.
Recently, the pair provided an updated soundtrack for the classic 1902 short film 'Le Voyage Dans La Lune'. Directed by Georges Méliès, the early film classic documents a voyage to the moon.
Shown at Cannes this summer, the new version of the film apparently inspired a full length project from Air. The French duo have completed an eleven track album, which expands on the themes of the recent soundtrack project.
The album features vocals from Beach House's Victoria Legrand, who contributes to 'Seven Stars'. Meanwhile, members of Brooklyn trio Au Revoir Simone constructed the lyrics for 'Who Am I Know?'.
Alongside the full length album, the upcoming edition of 'Le Voyage Dans La Lune' is set to feature a limited-edition version of the short film and Air's original score.
