about

As we prepare for the mid-August album release of "The Midnight Remixed," we are pleased to present the third and final pre-album single, "Sunset," featuring a brand new remix by iconic 80s-influenced artist Michael Cassette.

There was a sense of destiny behind Michael Cassette's triumphant remix of "Sunset." The Finnish producer's 2010 album, "Temporarity," released on the mighty Anjunadeep stable, remains the benchmark upon which modern-day synthwave is often assessed. Coaxed out of a significant production hiatus, Michael Cassette proves that he has not lost a compositional step. His life-affirming take accentuates The Midnight's euphoric chords and equally inspired, sing-along vocals, not to mention the original cut's hurts-so-good cinematic 80s aesthetic.

In this release, for good measure, we have also included The Midnight's original version of "Sunset," an instant synthwave classic that will forever remain synonymous with the genre. From the song's cinematic opening monologue to its poignant melodic outro, "Sunset" is Tim and Tyler's achingly beautiful ode to fellow wistful souls.
