20-year old French producer Madeon has been hard at work getting some of the biggest vocalists around to collaborate on his new album – and he’s been successful.
“My first album Adventure is coming out March 31st, I’ve been working on it for a couple of years. I worked with a lot of artists I love on it (Passion Pit, Mark Foster from Foster The People, Dan Smith from Bastille, Aquilo, Kyan),” Madeon wrote in his recent Reddit AMA.
In a press release, Madeon states, “With Adventure, I wanted to capture the feeling and sensibility of my teenage years. I wanted the album to start very vibrant and pop and end with a more contemplative tone. In making the record I both collaborated in the studio with some of my favourite musicians, and wrote and performed vocals on songs myself, two things I hadn’t really done before with my own music.”
Adventure is set for release March 31 via Columbia Records. Fans can stream and pre-order the album on iTunes now.
We recently spoke with Passion Pit’s Michael Angelakos about how he connected with Madeon for the track “Pay No Mind.”
