M83 have released a new song from their soundtrack for the salacious slasher film Knife + Heart, directed by Yann Gonzalez, the brother of M83 frontman Anthony Gonzalez.
Yann Gonzalez said of his brother’s involvement with the film:
This principle of pleasure came rushing back. I got Anthony to listen to some old soundtracks from straight and gay porn films. He quickly gathered the musical codes and finally, the most beautiful tracks in Knife + Heart—the most pleasurable ones—are probably the ones he recreated for the film’s fake porn movies.
The soundtrack also includes original M83 member Nicolas Fromageau, his first contribution since the band’s sophomore studio release Dead Cities, Red Seas & Lost Ghosts in 2003.
A press release teases that the soundtrack is “the first new collection of original M83 music since 2016’s Junk, with more to come in the near future.”
The full Knife + Heart soundtrack will be available to stream on March 8. You can preorder it here.
