Commemorating fifty years of music and innovation, the Godfather of Electronic Music JEAN-MICHEL JARRE (JMJ) releases his 41-track best-of PLANET JARRE today (September 14) via SONY.

Get it HERE.

Providing an intimate, indispensable, and inimitable overview of his storied career thus far, he personally oversaw comprehensive remastering and chose the compositions that drive this journey in four playlists: Soundscapes, Themes, Sequences and Explorations & Early Works.It's available in four configurations: vinyl, box set, deluxe CD, and standard CD. The vinyl and box set both unlock a download card for Jean-Michel Jarre in 5.1, granting the most immersive listening possible and perfect for audiophiles.

Beyond classics and unearthed rarities from the vault, the collection notably remains highlighted by two brand new recordings. "Herbalizer" enchants and entrances with its wondrously warm production as the previously released "Coachella Opening" transports audiences into the front row of his most recent Electronica World Tour-which fittingly launched with the icon's first-ever Coachella performance.

However, PLANET JARRE only set the stage for further innovation of the Godfather or Electronic Music. On November 16, 2018, JARRE unveils EQUINOXE INFINITY (Astralwerks)--the long-awaited sequel to his landmark fourth album, ÉQUINOXE. The first ÉQUINOXE notably arrived forty years prior to the date on November 16, 1978 and since remained essential listening for music aficionados. The idea behind this brand-new album is very much driven by humanity using new technologies such as artificial intelligence and what will become of human mankind by doing so.
