Le Voyage Dans Le Lune, the new album from veteran French sexy-music purveyors Air, began life when the duo were asked to score a restored, colorized version of the 1902 Georges Méliès silent film with the same title. It’s now a full-length album that’s set to come out next week, and we’ve already heard the Victoria Legrand collab “Seven Stars” and seen a couple of glimpses of the film-score portion of the album. And now here’s another one: The proggy, psychedelic instrumental “Parade” set to scenes from Excursion To The Moon, Segundo de Chomón’s 1908 remake of the Méliès film. (Remakes have apparently been a movie-industry standby for longer than I realized.) It’s below.
Le Voyage Dans La Lune is out 2/7 on Astralwerks.
