M83's had some big news this week. Yesterday, the French electro outfit announced it'd be scoring a new sci-fi film called Oblivion, and today, Mute Records announced that "Midnight City," the band's hit from last year, went Gold.
Since the single's release last summer, it has garnered over 500,000 downloads, and its accompanying music video has over 13 million views to date (at time of writing). This is the first time M83 has gone Gold.
Not too shabby, if you ask me.
