Electronic, ambient, and new-age pioneer Jean-Michel Jarre has announced a collaboration with Erasure’s Vince Clarke on his upcoming 14th studio album “E-Project”. “E-Project” will be released on October 16th and will feature 16 collaborations with M83, the late Edgar Froese of Tangerine Dream, Gesaffelstein and Massive Attack’s 3-D plus further artists who are still yet to be announced.
Some of these collaborations have already been released. In April 2015, Jarre released a collaboration with Gesaffelstein (“Conquistador”), another piece from his new album (“Glory”) he recorded in collaboration with M83 was released as part of the soundtrack of a short film called “EMIC”. The track composed in collaboration with late Edgar Froese and Tangerine Dream, entitled “Zero Gravity”, was released, together with a remix made by Above and Beyond. The recording with the late Edgar Froese of Tangerine Dream was one of Froese’s last projects before passing away in the January of 2015.
