Anthony Gonzalez of M83 wants to write Katy Perry's next album 2 go more mainstream
M83 played at Coachella, and it was clear that "Midnight City" is a lamestreamer magnet. So much so that Katy Perry stood in the audience and tweeted about how TOTALLY EPIC M83 is. Anyways, since it is being blogged about, and M83 is becoming this 'hot, new mainstream indie band', blogs are pretending that they are 'going to collab.'
Anthony Gonzalez, frontman of M83 decided to take the meme to the next level by pleading to the internet to contact Katy Perry, letting her know that he wants to produce her next album. Hopefully she can just get what she truly wants: Purchasing a "Midnight City" sample, completely bastardizing the song, leaving every one pissed off.
Here is some bullshit 'music journalism' by some random MTV blog, even though this will probably never happen:
M83's Anthony Gonzalez has taken his widescreen electronica on the road with the likes of Kings of Leon and the Killers. He's recorded a double-disc answer to the Smashing Pumpkins' Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness and has even seen his work show up in the occasional Miley Cyrus song.
But after his set at the Coachella festival this past weekend (yes, there were artists besides Holo-Tupac that performed), he's really dreaming big: He wants to make Katy Perry's next album.
"I think I saw Katy Perry dancing [to] 'Midnight City' yesterday night," Gonzalez wrote on his Facebook page following his performance. "Katy, let me write your next album!"
For the uninitiated, "Midnight City" is the fantastic single off M83's dynamic 2011 double album, Hurry Up, We're Dreaming, and yes, Perry was right in front when Gonzalez played it (here's photographic proof). And following the performance, Perry tweeted, "M83 ONLY." But does any of that mean a collaboration between the two might be in the works?
Should Anthony Gonzalez just 'motorboat' Katy Perry?
Do u <3 when mainstream celebs and alt celebs 'pander' to one another to obtain 'cred'?
Should Katy Perry join M83?
Should we all just kill ourselves b4 this collab comes 2 fruition?
Is M83's "Midnight City" the song of the decade?
