Published Oct 08, 2014M83's album Before the Dawn Heals Us came out way back in 2005, but the song "Moonchild" has only just gotten a new music video.
The clip was directed by Jonathan Hildebrand for a fan competition to create visuals to be used during the band's 2013 show at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. It captures the wonder and grandeur of this dreamy anthem, as we see triangular lights reflected in various people's eyes, and a cloaked figure stands in front of a large illuminated triangle.
M83 leader Anthony Gonzalez wrote in a statement, "Before the Dawn Heals Us is still my favourite… There's something very special about it. I remember listening back to it for the first time with my manager at the end of the session, and it was like, 'Yeah, that's cool. I'm going to sleep well tonight.'"
As previously reported, M83 recently reissued a chunk of his back catalogue, with re-pressings of his 2001 self-titled debut, 2003's Dead Cities, Red Seas, & Lost Ghosts and 2005's Before the Dawn Heals Us on Mute.
