Air, the French electronic duo, has just released La Voyage Dans La Lune (A Trip to the Moon).

The title is from a silent black & white film from 1902. Directed by Georges Méliès, La Voyage Dans La Lune is considered to be the first science fiction film.

In 1993 a hand-coloured, badly decomposed version of the film was discovered and only last year was fully restored.

Air was asked to compose a soundtrack for this 16 minute film.

Inspired by the experience Air gives us an album of the same name.

“Seven Stars” is from the album and features the vocals of Victoria Legrand from Beach House.
