WE GIVE IT: 12/20 Watts

As we have reminded over the past few months, Air’s much-anticipated Love 2 drops this week. The band’s first production at Atlas Studios, their very own recording facility, has left us with mixed emotions.  By no means a failure, there is something missing from Love 2.

PREVIEW: DOWNLOAD Air’s Love 2 Album Mash Up MP3

As all you Air junkies know we have quite an epic Air week coming up,  so naturally 20 Watts cant help but update you on every little detail. French pop duo’s much-anticipated album Love 2 drops on October 5th. For the past few months they have been releasing small teasers from Love 2 and last week Nicolas Godin and Jean-Benoît Dunckel had a pleasant surprise for all their followers.

On top of  hosting a world premiere listening party on Monday, September 28th, when they streamed the album for 24 hours, Godin and Dunckel offered a free exclusive mini mash-up of Love 2. Running for 4 minutes and 56 seconds it is a perfect sample for adoring fans. So, along with a bucketful of love from their loyal fans, looks like these two Frenchmen have found a more or less effective way of dealing with album leaks in the music piracy era. No?
