Jean-Michel Jarre’s new album, Electronica 1, isn’t even here yet, but it boasts an impressive cast of collaborators: Horror auteur John Carpenter, Fuck Buttons, Air, Little Boots. Now, he’s unveiled plans for a 2016 follow-up featuring—among other notables—Twin Peaks creator David Lynch.
“To be clear, the artists on the second are not there due to some sort of hierarchy”, Jarre explains, “but just because some tracks I had not finished, so I said they’d be on the second one. There are plenty of interesting people; Gary Numan and David Lynch and Hans Zimmer and Julia Holter… Different people covering four decades of electronic music who are all a source of inspiration to me, and who I feel I share a special link with.”
Keep an eye out for both Jarre and Holter in the forthcoming edition of Electronic Beats Magazine, and find more info on the new effort here.
