The artwork pictured above is M83’s eerie and modern album cover created by Anouk for Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, available on Mute, October 18th. The costume worn by the child on the left is cohesive with their artwork for the track “Midnight City,” which will be released as an official single on August 16. Although the cover concept is intriguing, it feels derivative; the artwork could be the child of Death From Above 1979 and the Donnie Darko creative team. Combined with overly-used Helvetica type, the album artwork leaves an imitative first impression – which will hopefully be opposed by the album’s musical content. Have a listen to “Midnight City,” below and decide for yourself:
