Jean-Michel Jarre - «Oxygene 3»

French electronic pioneer Jean-Michel Jarre will release brand new album «Oxygene 3» on December 2nd, 2016 - as 40th anniversary of his original cult album «Oxygene» released on December 2nd, 1976.

When Jean-Michel Jarre recorded «Electronica» two years ago, he did a piece of music (track «Oxygene 19») that made he think about what «Oxygene» album could be if it was composing it today. The idea was not to copy the original album, but rather keeping the dogma of embarking listeners on a journey from beginning to end with different chapters, all linked to each other.

What made the first «Oxygene» so different at the time, is probably the minimalist aspect, and the fact that there are almost no drums, and Jean-Michel Jarre wanted to keep this approach, creating the groove mainly with the sequences and the structure of the melodies only, through an architecture of sounds.

As first «Oxygene» in the vinyl days, new one done in 2 parts, like A and B sides. One side being darker, the other being brighter.

Artwork for «Oxygene 3» also in line with the two previous albums. Original one was done by Michel Granger, and current is 3D model of his creation.

«Oxygene 3» and the Triology Boxset (incl. «Oxygene», «Oxygene 2» and «Oxygene 3») will be out December 2nd, 2016 via Sony Music. «Oxygene 3» will available as CD, LP and Digital Download. Triology Boxset available as 3 CD Digipack and Digital Download. Ultimate Triology Boxset includes 3 albums on CD, 3 albums on 180g transparent LPs and exclusive Oxygene coffee table book.
