The latest teaser for the record is a song called Home - and, for once, he's put his own vocals on it. The French DJ (Hugo Pierre Leclercq to his mum) explained why in a series of tweets last night.
In january of last year, I stopped touring completely to focus on writing music for Adventure.— Madeon (@madeon) March 9, 2015
I have this thing I do about once a year. I lock myself in the studio for 24 hours and make two or three new songs from start to finish— Madeon (@madeon) March 9, 2015
By the 18th hour, the combination of sleep deprivation, creative frustration and isolation put me in this weird vulnerable state.— Madeon (@madeon) March 9, 2015
I kind of felt like giving up on music to be honest, so I made a song about that.— Madeon (@madeon) March 9, 2015
Because I was alone in the studio and had a microphone, I ended up recording it myself and finished producing it in the few hours remaining.— Madeon (@madeon) March 9, 2015
I dont see myself as a singer but I thought it would be weird to have anyone else do the song so I kept it the same as the demo on the album— Madeon (@madeon) March 9, 2015
Premiered by Annie Mac on Tuesday's Evening Session, it's a stunning track - happy and sad and uplifting and moving all at once. Here's the official audio.
