M83 – Run Into Flowers (Jackson Mix)
This is the Jackson remix of M83′s "Run Into Flowers", simply beautiful.  The cover art above is from the full album which did not contain this version, but I like that cover better than the single (which did include the remix) so I went with it. Anyone know who art directed these covers? Have a listen below.

Here’s the video for the original version, a decidedly more psychedelic outing. It’s quite pretty, but a little monotonous for a four minute video; seems more like an outtake from some live visuals.  But considering the chorus is "give me peace and chemicals" it’s not such a stretch that most of it’s intended viewers could remain transfixed for it’s duration. I saw M83 a couple years back when they came to San Francisco with Ulrich Schnauss.  It was a pretty impressive show, complete with an entire band and live instrumentation.

Ive always loved that cover. Gorgeous. No idea who directed it, thogh. Still, the photograph is incredible…it almost looks like it could be a super crisp painting. Or the people in the foreground look painted and everything else is photographic. It’s a really cool psuedo-illustrative look.

That Jackson remix is a real treat. Thanks for posting it. M83 is a great band, though I find that I like only half the songs of each of their albums. I can’t get into a lot of their heavier guitar thrashing stuff.

Indeed. I have bought about almost every M83 album, single, and EP. The artwork on each is quite interesting. They all have simple concepts, clear (or should I say apparent) fonts and colors that work beautifully together. Anyway, most of the Run Into Flowers remixes are excellent. My personal favorite it is the IG FarbenVorschlag Remix By KG . Hopefully you’ll answer this question, but have you listened to the first M83 album? If you have, I’m curious what you think of it. Oh and if you haven’t heard the new M83 track, Couleurs, off their upcoming album in April, give it a listen here http://stereogum.com/archives/new-m83-couleurs_007545.html
