Yesterday afternoon, Michel Gondry unveiled the cover artwork of Mirapolis. The fourth album of Rone is set to be released on October 2017. The artist will unveil the first extracts of his forthcoming album at a handful of key European festivals this summer.

 

 

It features a portrait of Rone with a backdrop of skyscrapers and futuristic buildings, reminiscent of the Archigram collectives of the 1960s' architectural extravagances or those of French SF writer Alain Damasio in The Outer Zone. Our superheRone, redefined in bichromic version, projects an array of purple cryptomium and psychedelic colours dazzling the viewer. Sprawled across the top, the ancient and enigmatic name of a citadel.

Michel Gondry is a French film and music video director. He shares with Rone a dual love of image and sound. Since the beginning of the nineties, Gondry has produced videos for Bjork, the White Stripes, Rolling Stones, Chemical Brothers, Beck or Daft Punk. The cult DVD collection The Work of Director which devoted a volume to the productions of Michel Gondry is one of the most cherished pieces of Rone's film library. His feature films Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind, The Science of Sleep and Be Kind, Rewind (to name but a few), adapt the big screen to Gondry's style - resolutely singular and offbeat, shifting between modern animation technologies and vintage collage techniques.
