JEAN-MICHEL JARRE Announces 'OXYMOREWORKS' Album Out November 3, 2023 with New Track “Zeitgeist Botanica” with Irène Drésel Out Today
Jean-Michel Jarre announces OXYMOREWORKS, a collection of collaborations with other artists, to be released on November 3. The nine-track body of work comprises re-works of tracks from his 2022 album OXYMORE, some of which have been revealed over previous months. Each track has been meticulously composed and produced by Jarre in direct collaboration with each featured artist, resulting in a distinctive new version that showcases the collective artistry of both musicians.
Jean-Michel Jarre has collaborated with rising British composer Adiescar Chase to create “Synthy Sisters Take Two.” The track is a rework of “Synthy Sisters” taken from Jarre’s acclaimed 2022 album OXYMORE.
The rework continues a series of collaborations from the album, including “EPICA TAKE 2” with Marseille-based Electronic producer and multi-instrumentalist French 79; “EPICA EXTENSION” with Brian Eno; “BRUTALISM TAKE 2” with Martin Gore; and “BRUTALISM REPRISE” with Deathpact.
The 40th anniversary remastered version of Jean-Michel Jarre’s historic live album The Concerts In China is out now. Originally released in 1982, the album served as a document of an historic concert tour Jarre undertook in 1981 - consisting of five spectacular concerts in the People's Stadium of Shanghai and Beijing. It was the first time a Western music artist had performed in the country following the Cultural Revolution.
Following reworks with Martin Gore (“BRUTALISM TAKE 2”) and Deathpact (“BRUTALISM REPRISE”) for his OXYMORE album track “BRUTALISM,” globally-acclaimed electronic artist Jean-Michel Jarre has paired with revered artist Brian Eno for the release of “EPICA EXTENSION” out today (November 18) on SONY Music.
