jeanmicheljarre equinoxeinfinity1Surprising announcement at the premiere of the ‘Planet JARRE 360 Degree Experience’ at the Planetarium Hamburg! 50 years of electronic music history, innovation and records: that’s JEAN-MICHEL JARRE. Pioneer and co-founder of today’s most successful genre: Electronic Music. Just now, he released his 41-track Best Of ‘Planet JARRE - 50 Years Of Music’ album, including the new titles ‘Herbalizer’ and ‘Coachella Opening’ on Sony Music, but not only that, JEAN-MICHEL JARRE surprises with a new album announcement. On 16 November 1978, ‘Equinoxe’ was released, to the day exactly forty years later his successor ‘Equinoxe Infinity’ will be released on 16 November 2018 as CD, LP, Box Set and digital:

JEAN-MICHEL JARRE - ‘Equinoxe Infinity’
Release: 16 November 2018
Label: Sony Music
Configurations: CD Digipack (two cover versions), LP (two cover versions), Box set ‘Equinoxe Project’ (‘Equinoxe Infinity’ + ‘Equinoxe Original’ Vinyl Replica CDs + download cart + poster of the cover), digital configurations

On the Best Of, which is curated by JARRE himself, he gives a play-listed overview of his career, instead of simply putting his numerous hits together. Consciously divided into the four territories of the ‘Planet JARRE’, the 41 tracks are divided into the sound worlds ‘Soundscapes’, ‘Themes’, ‘Sequences’ and ‘Explorations & Early Works’. Including numerous rarities such as ‘Music for Supermarkets’, of which there is only the demo version, since the original was destroyed after the sale of a single copy in the 80s as a protest against the constant commercialization of music. Another highlight are the two new titles ‘Herbalizer’ and ‘Coachella Opening’. ‘Planet JARRE’ will be released as digipack CD, 4 vinyl book and box set including the album as digipack, 2 cassettes and a download card with some songs in 5.1 sound.

As a special highlight for Germany, there was a one-hour presentation of the specially created ‘Planet JARRE 360 Degree Experience’ in the Hamburg Planetarium on Wednesday, 12 September 2018. The show can be seen in the current program for all interested parties in the Planetarium Hamburg. At the exclusive event, in front of invited partners and some lucky winners from all over the world, JARRE not only talked about his Best Of ‘Planet JARRE’, but also announced a brand new album: ‘Equinoxe Infinity’. This shows once again that a JEAN-MICHEL JARRE does not rest on his career, but driven by creativity and innovative thinking does not see his Best Of as the conclusion of a career, but rather as a milestone.

Fans will be especially pleased with the release of ‘Equinoxe Infinity’ as it is the most requested work by JARREs for ‘Oxygene’ for a sequel.

On 16 November 1978 appeared ‘Equinoxe’. Forty years later, his successor appears for the day. In 1978, JEAN-MICHEL JARRE composed and produced an album that would reflect the music of our future, revolutionizing electronic music history. As a supporting element, it was ‘Equinoxe’ to the ‘Watchers’ (the observers), which were seen on the original album cover in infinite numbers. These Watchers were in 1987, in an emerging era of technology and innovation, a symbol of machines watching us. An early vision of what the future would bring us.

On ‘Equinoxe Infinity’, JEAN-MICHEL JARRE continues this idea. The new work will be released with two covers by artist Filip Hodas. The one version embodies a future in which man lives in harmony with nature. The other version shows the destruction that machines and humans could bring across the planet. For the well-known as innovator and pioneer JARRE, the topic of Artificial Intelligence and Man vs Machine is the most important and explosive topic for the future of humanity. For his thoughts JARRE was honoured in 2017 with the Stephen Hawkings Medal for Science. ‘Equinoxe Infinity’ is the soundtrack for this two-sided vision of the future. ‘Equinoxe Infinity’ includes 10 brand new tracks. With ‘The Watchers (Movement 1)’ the first title is released just now.

‘Equinoxe Infinity’ will be released as a digipack and vinyl in two album cover versions, as well as a box set including ‘Equinoxe Infinity’ and ‘Equinoxe Original’ as a vinyl replica CD, vinyl, as well as the album cover downloads and posters. The album cover of the CD & Vinyl cannot be selected when ordering in online shops. The selection is made at the request of the artist randomly.
