As M83, Anthony Gonzalez's music has always had an epic, movie-worthy quality to it, whether on the soaring heights of "Midnight City" or the moody passages on Saturdays=Youth. For his first actual score, for Joseph Kosinski's dystopian sci-fi film Oblivion, Gonzalez collaborates with composer Joseph Trapanese (who worked with Daft Punk on the score for Kosinski's Tron: Legacy), and together they blend the M83 sound with more conventional orchestral elements. A handful of tracks here could have appeared on Hurry Up, We're Dreaming, most notably "StarWaves," where the sweeping synths and intense buildup are a distant cousin of "Midnight City," and "Oblivion," which closes the score with a dramatic ballad sung by Susanne Sundfør. For the most part, though, Gonzalez tempers his usual neon romanticism to fit Oblivion's post-apocalyptic action: the pulsing synths on "Odyssey Rescue" hark back to such classic sci-fi music as Vangelis' Blade Runner score, while the somber, slow-building orchestral epic "Waking Up" is far from M83's euphoric heights. With Trapanese, he moves from electronic to orchestral and back again with a minimum of effort, and finds eloquent ways to compose with both. "Tech 49" begins with turbulent brass and drums that are mirrored by deep arpeggiated synths as it closes, and "Earth 2077"'s strings are as lavish as the keyboards usually are in Gonzalez's music. Even if there are times when the score errs a little too far on the side of conventionality, Oblivion still has several standout moments, including the revved-up suites "Canyon Battle" and "Radiation Zone," both of which sound very different than any of Gonzalez's previous music and also bend the rules about what highly charged movie music should sound like. Similarly, the score's quieter cues also provide some of its most memorable tracks, including the elegiac "I'm Sending You Away" and "Undimmed by Time, Unbound by Death." That Oblivion resembles a blockbuster soundtrack more than an M83 album may disappoint some of Gonzalez's fans, but it means that he and Trapanese succeeded in making the film's music what it needed to be.

About M83/Anthony Gonzalez:
M83 was formed as a musical vehicle by Anthony Gonzalez in 2001. Over the course of the next 10 years Gonzalez released six albums under the M83 name, including, most recently, the Grammy-nominated album 'Hurry Up, We're Dreaming' (2011). The supporting world tour for 'Hurry Up, We're Dreaming' lasted more than a year and saw Gonzalez enhance the growing reputation for the variety and excellence of M83's live performances.

Though having worked in his native France for the majority of his career, Gonzalez had relocated to Los Angeles in 2009, in part to aid his desire to undertake score work for film and television. Various introductions were quickly made, and it was less than a year later that Gonzalez was approached by Joseph Kosinski with the offer of a commission for his forthcoming film, 'Oblivion'.

About Joseph Trapanese:
Joseph Trapanese's love of classical music and electronic sound began at a young age.  The duality continued through his formal conservatory training in New York, where he juxtaposed performing in Carnegie Hall and other major New York concert venues with scoring films, contributing to theatrical productions, performing with jazz and Latin bands, and writing experimental and interactive music.  Upon arriving in Los Angeles, the seemingly parallel tracks began to come together, leading to collaborations with artists for several of the most anticipated soundtracks of recent memory: from Daft Punk (TRON: Legacy) to Mike Shinoda (The Raid), as well as M83 (Hurry Up, We're Dreaming and Oblivion) and Moby ("Extreme Ways" from The Bourne Legacy).  A versatile composer and orchestrator in his own right, he has lent his unique sound to productions such as "Tron: Uprising," "The Bannen Way" and "Dexter," as well as numerous independent films and theatrical productions.

About Susanne Sundfør:
Susanne Sundfor is a Norwegian singer-songwriter, currently based in Oslo. She rose to national prominence in her home country in 2007 aged only 20 and within a year was awarded the Spellemannprisen Grammy award for her eponymous debut album. Her subsequent albums "The Brothel" (2010) and "The Silicone Veil" (2012) further confirmed Sundfor's status as one of the leading songwriters of her generation. As an accomplished live performer Sundfor was invited to tour in Europe with M83 in the summer of 2012 and received both popular and critical acclaim for her performances.

About Oblivion:
Tom Cruise stars in Oblivion, an original and groundbreaking cinematic event from the director of TRON: Legacy and the producer of Rise of the Planet of the Apes.  On a spectacular future Earth that has evolved beyond recognition, one man's confrontation with the past will lead him on a journey of redemption and discovery as he battles to save mankind.  Jack Harper (Cruise) is one of the last few drone repairmen stationed on Earth.  Part of a massive operation to extract vital resources after decades of war with a terrifying threat known as the Scavs, Jack's mission is nearly complete.  Living in and patrolling the breathtaking skies from thousands of feet above, his soaring existence is brought crashing down when he rescues a beautiful stranger from a downed spacecraft.  Her arrival triggers a chain of events that forces him to question everything he knows and puts the fate of humanity in his hands.

On June 28, 2012, it was announced that French electronic/shoegaze band M83 would compose the soundtrack for Oblivion. On why he chose M83 to score the film, director Joseph Kosinski said, "I went back and I found my first treatment for Oblivion from 2005 and it had listed in the treatment a soundtrack of M83. Obviously the Tron: Legacy collaboration with Daft Punk worked out as good as I would have ever hoped, [so] I wanted to do something similar in that I’m pulling an artist from outside the movie business to create an original sound for this film." Kosinski continued, "Daft Punk’s music wouldn’t make sense for this movie. It had to be an artist whose music fit the themes and story I was trying to tell. And M83’s music I felt was fresh and original, and big and epic, but at the same time emotional and this is a very emotional film and it felt like a good fit."

To guide Anthony Gonzalez of M83 through the scoring process, director Kosinski brought in Joseph Trapanese, who co-wrote the score alongside Gonzalez. Kosinski states, "Together they have created the score that I have dreamed about since I first put this story down on paper eight years ago." Trapanese first came to Kosinski's attention when he collaborated with Daft Punk on "Tron: Legacy" as arranger and orchestrator.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, M83 frontman Anthony Gonzalez said, "I started to write the soundtrack just reading the script, and then when you get the picture in, it's different, and you kind of switch to another vibe and change stuff and start experimenting a lot with the music." Gonzalez added, "I worked with Joseph a lot, and he's very particular about the music in his movies, so we spent a lot of time talking about music and working the arrangements together."

The soundtrack album was released on April 9, 2013 by Back Lot Music. A deluxe edition of the soundtrack was released the same day exclusively through iTunes. It features an additional 13 tracks.
