Hello! I just read this on JB's website - "The final mixes of the next Air album are almost done."

I hope that info hasn't been posted here before.

Best wishes

Good news. I wonder when it will be released. Sometimes record companies delay things for many months :?

Good news :)

I think with the work for Cartier we have a kind of preview of next tunes of air...
If you look the video, i think it's not one unique track, but 3 or 4 differents songs...like sneak peek for the next album ???

The word now for us is...To Wait !

I think it is likely a preview on sounds used anyway. The Cartier song had some slightly different sounds used and is possibly a preview as to what types of things we will be hearing.

Yes, I think AIR will have done this Cartier ad to showcase sounds from the new album - an ideal opportunity. Not sure of it being separate songs... the footage they had to work with goes through changes in mood and that's why the music changes at those points. Composing soundtracks is very different to composing music in the usual way. But we'll find out for sure when the album comes out - I would guess, next Spring. :)

French dream-pop outfit Air are set to release an album on February 7 through Astralwerks, their first since 2009's Love 2. Titled Le Voyage Dans La Lune after Georges Méliès' 1902 silent short French film by the same name, it's an expansion of a project they worked on earlier this year. (The duo provided music for an updated version of Méliès' film for its debut at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival.)

The record features lyrics and vocals from Beach House's Victoria Legrand on a song called "Seven Stars" and lyrics written by Au Revoir Simone on the track "Who Am I Now? The release will include a limited-edition version of the short film and Air's original score. Here's the tracklist:
Le Voyage Dans La Lune:

01 Astronomic Club
02 Seven Stars
03 Retour sur terre
04 Parade
05 Moon Fever
06 Sonic Armada
07 Who Am I Know?
08 Décollage
09 Cosmic Trip
10 Homme lune
11 Lava

So the new album JB is talking about (see above) is probably "Le Voyage Dans La Lune".
No news about a proper studio album with brand new tracks.

Well, it's as "proper" as The Virgin Suicides or City Reading both of which were very good I think. But I hear what you are saying. :wink:
