At the beginning of the month, M83 returned with the bizarre “Do It, Try It,” a goofy, love-it-or-hate-it left turn that nevertheless earned a spot on our 5 Best Songs Of The Week list. Now, as Pitchfork points out, Anthony Gonzalez and co. have followed it up with another new song from their forthcoming LP Junk, and it’s very different. “Solitude” still teeters on the edge of cheesiness, but instead of a cartoon banger it’s a stirring six-minute ballad that could almost pass for a James Bond theme. Listen below.
Junk is out 4/8 on Mute. Pre-order it here.
