Pioneering electronic musician Jean-Michel Jarre has announced the release of three collaborative 12-inches.
Production of the first EP saw the visionary Frenchman reunite with Tangerine Dream co-founder Edgar Froese before his unexpected passing earlier this year. The result was ‘Zero Gravity’, an ambient synth number which also received a dramatic rework by trance legends Above & Beyond.
The second 12-inch, ‘Watching You’, partners Jarre with Massive Attack’s 3D.
The final EP showcases the touches of hard-hitting techno artist, and fellow Frenchman, Gesaffelstein. The pair spoke about their effort, ‘Conquistador’, in a video last month.
The collaborations, available on June 19th via The Vinyl Factory, serve as a teaser to the release of Jarre’s long-awaited new album later this year.
