Hurry up, you’re not dreaming—the new M83 album, titled Junk, was announced today in what feels like an existential shit-post. The album cover looks like a meme featuring characters from Wonder Shozen and its first single, “Do It, Try It,” is a catchy piece of synth-pop, made to be taken a little less seriously when lip-synched by a dog floating in space.
