AIR – Indian Summer


As AIR prepare to release their ‘Twentyyears’ best of compilation, they have revealed a rare track, ‘Indian Summer’. Recorded during the ‘Love 2’ album sessions, ‘Indian Summer’ was previously only available on the Japanese 4 x LP edition of ‘Love 2’. Released in January 2010, this was limited to just 1000 physical LPs. The track was not included on the standard version of their album or any digital platform.

Twenty years after their international debut, French multi-platinum selling band Air will release their first anthology album ‘Twentyears’ on June 10th. Air – Nicolas Godin and Jean-Benoît Dunckel – have personally selected the core ‘Best Of’ tracklisting. The album features essential selections from the Air discography, including ‘Sexy Boy’, ‘Kelly Watch The Stars’, ‘Playground Love’, ‘Cherry Blossom Girl’ and ‘Le soleil est près de moi’. It also includes studio album tracks from ‘Premiers symptômes’ (1997), ‘Moon Safari’ (1998), ‘The Virgin Suicides’ (2000), ‘10 000 Hz Legend’ (2001), ‘Talkie Walkie’ (2004) and ‘Le voyage dans la Lune’ (2012).

Available on CD and digital formats, the second disc of the collection gathers 14 rare and unreleased tracks. Highlights include ‘Crickets’ and ‘The Way You Look Tonight’ from the ‘Pocket Symphony’ and ‘10 000 Hz Legend’ sessions; ’Adis Abebah’ from the ‘Quartier lointain’ soundtrack; ‘Roger Song’, written for ‘Corman’s World’, a documentary about cult B-movie director Roger Corman; ‘Land Me’, taken from the vinyl-only ‘Music For Museum’ release in 2014; and ‘The Duelist’ which was performed by Charlotte Gainsbourg and Jarvis Cocker during the ‘Pocket Symphony’ recording.

Air will start a new worldwide tour on May 20th. It features UK festival dates at Field Day (June 12th) , Blue Dot (July 23rd) and Secret Garden Party (July 24th).
