Gesaffelstein has finally released his highly anticipated and mysterious album Hyperion, featuring a number of top-notch collaborations and solo singles. The work is a means to expand his sonic universe, with elements of R&B, pop, disco and goth all covered in the Frenchman’s production.

The 10-track collection winds up with multiple experimental electronic recordings before launching into the Weeknd-assisted “Lost in the Fire,” Pharrell’s “Blast Off” and the previously unreleased “So Bad” featuring HAIM. The remainder of the project tapers off with more oscillating instrumentals, culminating with the mesmerizing and soul-searching, nearly-11-minute long “Humanity Gone.”

The Columbia Records-released Hyperion plays like a moment of growth leading toward more to come, like Gesaffelstein has stretched his creative muscles to see what new directions are attainable. Proof positive that he can rock pop-crossovers and theatrical scores alike, he’s daring enough to feature both styles in the same full length. Listen to the whole album below.
