Fránçois & The Atlas Mountains have shared ‘1982’, the latest track from their forthcoming album, Solide Mirage – out Friday 3rd March.
Featuring string arrangements from Owen Pallett, ‘1982’ is a dream-like song dedicated to people born in the same year as Fránçois: “I wanted to dedicate a song to those who were born in the early eighties,” he said.
“They were teenagers without mobile phones, and they built their identity in between two generations: the utopian generation (their parents) and the younger pragmatic generation (born in the nineties onward) who are more at ease with computers and the confusion of a highly connected lifestyle.”
The new record, Solide Mirage, was recorded in Jet Studios in Brussels and produced by Ash Workman, who also worked on Piano Ombre and who has worked with Metronomy and Christine & The Queens, with strings performed by Owen Pallett.
