Team Ghost is the new project of Nicolas Fromageau, whom you may recognize as a founding member of M83. He left before the recording of 2005’s Before The Dawn Heals Us, and I don’t remember hearing much from him since. Now, backed by multi-instrumentalist Christophe Guérin and Jean-Philippe Talaga, Fromageau returns with “Colors In Time.” The song comes from the band’s debut EP, You Never Did Anything Wrong To Me, due out April 26th on Sonic Cathedral Records.

Jónsi stopped by the Jo Wiley Show on BBC Radio 1 this past weekend, where he was nice enough to grace us with this in studio cover of “Time To Pretend” by MGMT. With just a piano to accompany him, Jónsi’s falsetto soars and the end result is gorgeous.

Jónsi’s debut solo album, Go, is due out April 6th via XL Recordings.
