Air Gather Their Hits and Rarities for 'Twentyears' Collection
After spending the last two decades delivering some of the breeziest electro-pop out there, French duo Air have announced they're compiling a bunch of hits and rarities for a new anthology release. The self-curated collection, dubbed Twentyears, lands as a double-CD on June 10 and later as double-LP on July 22.

Pre-orders for the package are up now, with it being explained in a product listing that the first disc of Twentyears is presented as a "Best Of." This features 17 songs ranging from early Moon Safari singles "Sexy Boy" and "Kelly Watch the Stars," to work from the band's beloved Virgin Suicides score ("Playground Love"), to material from their Music for Museum ambient collection from 2014.

A second 14-track disc showcases various rarities. It includes Air's "The Duelist" collaboration with Charlotte Gainsbourg and Jarvis Cocker, "Au fond du rêve doré" with Francoise Hardy, and radio sessions from the BBC and Los Angeles' KCRW.

You'll find the full breakdown of the two-CD version of Twentyears below. On July 22, a "Super Deluxe" triple-CD version of the comp, which will come with a to-be-detailed third disc of remixes done by Air, will also be released.
