air breaths new life into catalog

French downtempo duo Air returns this fall with its fifth studio long-player, Love 2, which is due Oct. 6 via Astralwerks in the United States. It's said to be the first album recorded at the duo's Atlas Studio in northern Paris. Los Angeles-based drummer Joey Waronker and musician St├ęphane "Alf" Briat contribute to the collection.
