Listen: M83’s new song “Ali & Matthias”

m83 young and the night

M83′s Anthony Gonzalez continues his plunge into cinema with his second soundtrack of 2013. If you recall, Gonzalez contributed new, original music to Tom Cruise’s Spring sci-fi thriller, Oblivion. Now, he’s doing the same thing for You And The Night, the first feature-length film from his brother, Yann Gonzalez.

According to a plot synopsis on IMDB, You And The Night depicts a “young couple and their transvestite maid” as they prepare for an orgy. “Their guests will be The Slut, The Star, The Stud and The Teen.”

As Anthony insists on his Facebook page, the score’s “really for lovers and ghosts,” though a description on SoundCloud says it also “pays tribute to French soundtracks from the 70’s and is much more intimate than [M83]’s Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming and the Oblivion Soundtrack.” Anthony worked alongside long-time M83 collaborator Morgan Kibby (M83, White Sea) and Susanne Sundfør, who performed vocals on several tracks.

As a preview, take a listen to “Ali & Matthias”, a lush instrumental full of bright harmonies, below.

You And The Night will be available digitally on November 19th. A physical release is scheduled for 2014.
