The Midnight are breathing new life into their 2016 debut album, Endless Summer.
With help from the Magik*Magik Orchestra, the renowned synthwave outfit will reimagine their debut album, 2016's The Rearview Mirror, to celebrate its five-year anniversary.
The duo took to social media to share a behind-the-scenes teaser video of the recording process, writing that they "wanted to try something different" as they reflected on the breakthrough album.
Before the full EP drops, synthwave connoisseurs can enjoy its first single, "Vampires." The track is quite a departure from The Midnight's signature retrofuturistic sound, as Magik*Magik transforms the classic with a rich, emotive makeover.
