Here’s another preview for Jean-Michel Jarre‘s upcoming collaboration album, due out October 16,
Stardust – a collaboration with Armin Van Buuren – is the sixth piece of music to be announced from the Frenchman’s forthcoming project. Taking his place alongside M83, Tangerine Dream, Gesaffelstein, 3D (Massive Attack) and Vince Clarke, Armin van Buuren is the first artist announced from pure trance roots, something that Jarre himself insisted upon.
“Trance music is one of the biggest movements and draws in electronic music,” notes Jarre. “Armin van Buuren has always stayed faithful to that style and he’s one of the most respected figures of that genre. Trance music had to be included in this journey for me.”
The upcoming album, “E-Project” (working title), was conceived with Jarre’s wish to encompass the last few decades of electronic music with the participation of outstanding artists of all generations, with whom Jarre feels especially connected with, ‘by a common DNA’. The album features 16 different collaborators.
