I'm guessing this is the "proper" album, inspired by the work they did on Voyage Dans La Lune. Very happy to hear about this today! AIR's Facebook Page also has a photo published today "Mastering the new album" and a new logo of the Voyage Dans La Lune image. :)

Proper album or not ... it's a new Air recording, and that, as we all well know, is cause for celebration. I'd say it's more of a proper studio album, especially when you take the guest vocalists appearances into account. Maybe that doesn't mean anything in this regard, but I'm looking forward to February a whole lot more now. Perhaps they'll tour the states again soon thereafter. I missed them the last time around but was lucky enough to catch them for Talkie Walkie and Pocket Symphony. My friend Sean managed to get a setlist for me at the Talkie Walkie show we saw in Milwaukee back in 2004, from JB's Rhodes, no less!

This is a great board, by the way. I've learned lots of little things I never knew about the band after enjoying their music for over a decade! Thanks everyone.

Another question: The film is meant to last 13 or 14 minutes. I guess the soundtrack will last a bit longer...
Have they done extended versions of the tracks that you can hear during the film?

from the Aircheology website

28/11/11 - Album released 7th February 2012 for US & Canada

‘Le Voyage Dans La Lune’ (A Trip To The Moon) is a classic black & white silent film by revered French director Georges Méliès.
Released in 1902, this legendary 16-minute film is widely considered one of the most important works in film history, and the very first to use science fiction as its theme, incorporating special effects that were very state-of-the-art at the turn of the 19th century. It was loosely based on two popular novels of the time: Jules Verne's ‘From the Earth to the Moon’ and H. G. Wells ‘The First Men In The Moon’.
A hand-coloured print, the only one known to survive, was rediscovered in 1993 by the Filmoteca de Catalunya. It was in a state of almost total decomposition, and many years of painstaking, manual restoration took place until 2010, when digital technology finally came to the rescue. Following another year at the Technicolor Lab of Los Angeles, it was finally ready to share with the world. Eager to put a contemporary spin on this classic silent film, the producers decided to approach AIR’s Nicolas Godin and Jean-Benoit Dunckel, to compose an original modern soundtrack, an enormous honour for French musicians, considering the film’s place in the canon of French cinema.
Spurred on by their work on this short movie, AIR decided to develop the project into a full album inspired by the film. Expanding the original musical themes beyond cinematic instrumentals, the album also features the vocal talents and lyrics of Au Revoir Simone and Victoria Legrand (Beach House). The band’s lunar fascinations have been evident since the beginning of their career with the release of the seminal 1998 classic Moon Safari. Now in 2012 Nicolas and JB have returned to explore the further regions of their very unique musical “space.”
