Madeon has also unveiled the official music video for “Nonsense” featuring Foster the People’s Mark Foster today via Noisey – check out the video above. The video is the final installment of a trilogy, (following “You’re On” and “Pay No Mind” videos), set in a remote city in an undefined future, focused on a young woman, Asteria, and a young man, Icarus. Asteria is restless to see more of the outside world and finds a friend in Icarus, who shares her desire of leaving.

“Nonsense,” which Entertainment Weekly calls “a synth-pop dream,” is a standout track from Madeon’s debut album, Adventure, which opened at #1 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Albums Chart as well as #1 on Billboard’s New Artist Album Chart.Adventure was released to glowing accolades from the press, including a 7.8 review from Pitchfork, who praised the album as “a strikingly versatile collection” and noted that “on the path to what feels like something huge, Madeon’s journey is just beginning.” Named “the best electronic album of 2015 so far,” by The Fader, the album’s diverse lineup of contributors includes Dan Smith from Bastille on “La Lune,” Foster the People’s Mark Foster on “Nonsense,” Aquilo on “Innocence,” UK soulster Kyan on “You’re On,” and Passion Pit on “Pay No Mind”.
