A new track from the electronic pioneer. Stereogum reviews:
French synth sculptor Jean-Michel Jarre has had the collaborative juices flowing lately. Last fall’s Electronica 1 featured the likes of Laurie Anderson, Pete Townshend, Fuck Buttons, Little Boots, Moby, Boys Noize, Vince Clark, Lang Lang, and more. On his latest share, “What You Want,” he gets help from Canada’s delightfully raunchy electropop star Peaches. Perhaps a leftover from the last album or a sign of things to come, “What You Want” is fun and seductive, with Peaches taking on borderline rap cadences on the hook to pose the provocative questions “What you want?/ What you got?/ What you need?”
RELATED: This is Jarre’s classic hit from 1976, one of the tracks that first turned me on to electronic music.
