M83 has announced a new album called Fantasy.

The ninth studio effort from the “Midnight City” outfit will arrive March 17. You can listen to the first single, “Oceans Niagara,” now via digital outlets.

“I wanted this record to be very impactful live,” says frontman Anthony Gonzalez. “The idea was to come back with something closer to the energy of [2005’s] Before the Dawn Heals Us. The combination of guitars and synths is always in my music, but it’s maybe more present on this new record than on the previous ones.”

You’ll be able to experience that impactful live energy yourself when M83 launches a U.S. tour this spring, running from April 10 in Phoenix to May 16 in Oakland. For the full list of dates and all ticket info, visit ILoveM83.com.
