In the name of Tom Cruise, M83 returned to the stage last night to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. Supporting the soundtrack to this weekend’s post-apocalyptic science-fiction thriller, Oblivion, Anthony Gonzalez brought his anthemic title track to life with help from a full orchestra and Norwegian singer Susanne SundfÃ¸r. If we were floored by Zola Jesus, Anthony Gonzalez, or even Morgan Kibbe, SundfÃ¸r warped us into another dimension. Wow. Replay the performance below.
Oblivion: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is currently available via Back Lot Records. The film itself hits theaters tomorrow. In related news, M83’s 2003 debut, Dead Cities, Red Seas and Lost Ghosts, just turned 10 — read Sasha Geffen’s editorial here.
