Jean Michel-Jarre rings in another year of musical celebration with new track 'Coachella Opening'

With a best-of compilation release around the corner and a spectacular Coachella performance in the rearview, Jean Michel-Jarre has plenty to celebrate. Just yesterday, the musician quite fittingly rang in his birthday, and commemorated half a century of music with the release of a new track “Coachella Opening.”

“Coachella Opening” possesses the same hypnotic sequences that catapulted Jarre to stardom, and as its title hints, it was specifically written for the live performance last April as a part of the legendary French producer’s Electronica world tour. Jarre’s forthcoming work Planet Jarre is comprised of 41 of his finest works from his immensely extensive music catalog, hand-picked by Jarre himself and completely re-mastered to add a new and sparkling freshness to the sound of the package.
