Electronic music great Jean-Michel Jarre recently let Swedish House Mafia don Steve Angello take the reins on a remix of his M83 (a.k.a. Anthony Gonzalez) collaboration "Glory." Revisiting the source material once again, the song's been treated to a music video.

The clip was directed by Lisa Paclet, who used sports as her central theme. She offered up the following statement about the release:

When I listened to "Glory", I was struck by the lyrics "we could never have it all" that, to me, crystalized a very contemporary feeling of impotence. Jean-Michel Jarre told me he wanted the video to be "dark and sunny," so I opted for a slightly sardonic take on the concept of "glory." I wanted to glorify useless action though a series of absurd sports, preformed by athletes that run after unreachable, constantly shifting goals. Their performances are scrutinized by a uniform, stoic, public whose reaction to their efforts is synchronized and coordinated like a well-oiled machine.

As the clip progresses, the athletes subtly rebel against their pointless task though deliberate action of failure, breaking the repetitive cycle to which they are constrained. Their failures reveal a breach of humanity, which ricochets within the public, who in turn reacts in a progressively entropic fashion.

"Glory" is out now as a 12-inch and will also appear on Jarre's upcoming studio album, which has yet to firm up a release date.
