M83

Next week, reissues of the first three M83 albums (M83, Dead Cities, Red Seas, And Lost Ghosts, and Before The Dawn Heals Us) will be released, with compilations of rarities and remixes coming next month. To mark the occasion, the band have given us a new video for “Lower Your Eyelids To Die With The Sun.” “Lower” was the epic closing track on Before The Dawn Heals Us — the album that was not just a breakthrough commercially, but also marked the transition of M83 from a recording duo with Anthony Gonzalez and Nicolas Fromageau to Gonzalez’s solo project. Watch the video, which is as majestic and somber as the song itself.

The reissues will be out 8/25 via Mute. The rarities/remixes compilations will be out 9/9.

  1. One of my favorite M83 songs. There’s a fun skate video set to this song where dudes do tricks in slo-mo and stuff explodes, you can find it if you search for “Fully Flared M83″.

    • One of my favorites as well. That fully flared intro was directed by Spike Jonze who has also directed a bunch of great stuff in skate videos.

    • There’s also an awesome super slow-motion HD surfing video of some huge waves that is set to this song and its incredibly epic.

  2. M83 makes some of the BEST closing tracks: “Beauties Can Die” / “The Highest Journey” / “Lower Your Eyelids To Die With The Sun” / “Midnight Souls Remain” all tie together each of the album’s they appear on perfectly.

    Hard to believe this video was shot 10 years ago with what looks like really high-def video. Stunning though.

    Why have there been so many great music videos this week?

  3. Great track. This is the best use of this song though. Watch in HD or 2k If you can. It will ease all pain and suffering for 6 minutes. http://vimeo.com/87701971
