dventure, the much anticipated debut album from multi-talented electronic A-List producer / artist Madeon, will be released on March 31 on Columbia Records. Standard and deluxe versions of the album are available for pre-order now. Fans who pre-order the deluxe album will receive instant downloads of five songs, including current single “You’re On,” “Imperium,” “Finale,” ”Icarus,” and “The City.” Additional new tracks from the album will be released as instant downloads in the weeks leading up to release.
The charismatic Madeon gathered an eclectic slate of special guest artists to be part of his debut , with Dan Smith from Bastille sharing the spotlight on “La Lune,” Passion Pit on “Pay No Mind,” Foster the People’s Mark Foster on “Nonsense” and Aquilo on “Innocence.” The collaborations highlight Madeon’s continuing evolution as an innovator and in-demand production trailblazer, with the artist raising the bar on his own expectations for his album debut. Please see full tracklist below.
Additionally, today Madeon has released a brand new remix of “You’re On” by Gramatik. Fans can listen to the remix HERE. The track will be included on a special “You’re On” remix package available at all DSPs on Tuesday, January 27. The song, featuring vocals from UK soulster Kyan, has already snagged rave reviews, with Billboard declaring it “instantly infectious” and the UK’s Guardian praising its “chopped-up and filtered vocals, big spacious synth riffs, and huge drop.”
“You’re On” has also seen support from Sirius BPM, where it has been added into rotation, and ESPN2, who will be featuring the track throughout the month of February on First Take. The song has also been playlisted at Radio 1 in the UK. “You’re On” follows the release of “Imperium,” which dropped to universal praise last fall. The riveting song has already garnered more than 2 million combined streams and was featured on the new FIFA 15 video game.
Having already performed at many major festivals in 2014 including SW4 and Global Gathering in the UK, Arenal Sound, Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas plus a headline show at Electric Zoo in New York, Madeon will continue to wow huge crowds across the globe with his live show this year, with a recently announced performance at Coachella slated for April 12 and 19 and additional U.S. tour dates to be announced. Outside of his own projects, Madeon has worked with artists including Ellie Goulding, Muse, Two Door Cinema Club, Lady Gaga and Coldplay.
“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.”
