Spectrum Culture

Its 35 minutes feel like more than enough to justify the wait, and if he takes another eternity between albums, we can feel confident he’s spending that time making the maximalist pop record of our dreams.

The Needle Drop

By virtue of its richer synth layering and better integrated vocal guests, Good Faith is a step up from Madeon's 2015 debut.


We, the French, we were all waiting for it, and it's finally here, one of the most awaited albums of the year! Madeon is back with "Good Faith"!...
