French composer Jean-Michel Jarre released a new single today that features none other than NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. “Exit” will be included on Jarre’s forthcoming album Electronic Vol. 2: The Heart Of Noise, which is due out in May, and features Primal Scream, Pet Shop Boys, Cyndi Lauper, Peaches, and more. Snowden has been living in exile since 2013, but Jarre conscripted him to work on this song after a mutual acquaintance put them in touch. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Snowden described his longtime adoration for electronic music. You can watch the clip here and listen to “Exit” below.
