Modern French pop band Air will release release a new album titled Love 2 (maybe subtitled "Just in case you missed the first one?) on October 6th through Astralwerks Records. It will be their fifth studio album and the follow-up to 2007’s Pocket Symphony.
They'll also release a digital single titled “Do The Joy” on July 7th, to be followed by a physical single release for the“Sing Sang Sung” on August 25th. Astralwerks is calling it a "Summery pop anthem ," but with a release date in late August, it's more likely to be a "missed the Summer" pop anthem.
Love 2 (so much better than the first) was recorded by Jean-Benoit Dunckel and Nicolas Godin in their own studio called Atlas Studio in northern Paris. They spent a lot of time their recording and producing the music themselves, and called in Stéphane “Alf” Briat to help with the mixdown.
They'll take their Surreal Prozac-tinged sounds on a European tour in early 2010 before heading over to North American dates in the Spring.
