Air unveil Beach House collaboration

Beach House singer Victoria Legrand has lent her distinctly dusky voice to ‘Seven Stars’, a song just debuted by French electro-pop types Air. It’s taken from Air’s new album, an extended version of the duo’s soundtrack to a hand-shaded reissue of Georges Méliès’ seminal silent film ‘Le Voyage Dans La Lune’.

Nicolas Godin said of the album, which takes its title from the movie: “[It is] undoubtedly more organic than most of our past projects. We wanted it to sound ‘handmade and knocked together’, a bit like Méliès’ special effects. Everything is played live and like Méliès’ film, our soundtrack is nourished by living art”.

Also featuring guest vocals from Au Revoir Simone, the album is set for release on 6 Feb 2012.
