The full details of electronic music pioneer Jean-Michel Jarre's long-awaited collaborative release Electronica 1: The Time Machine have been officially revealed.

Included in the 15-track release, which is the first in a two-part series, will be M83, Air, Pete Townshend, Little Boots, Vince Clarke, Laurie Anderson, Massive Attack's 3D, Moby, Boys Noize, Gesaffelstein, Tangerine Dream, Armin van Buuren, Lang Lang, and even director/composer John Carpenter.

In a release, the 67-year-old Lyon native states; "I've wanted to tell a story for a while regarding electronic music history and its legacy from my point of view and experience, from when I started to nowadays. So I planned to compose for and collaborate with an array of artists who are, directly or indirectly linked to this scene, with people I admire for their singular contribution to our genre, that represent a source of inspiration for me over the last four decades I have been making music, but who also have an instantly recognizable sound. At the outset, I had no idea how this project would evolve, but I was delighted that everybody I reached out to accepted my invitation."

The full details follows the official release of his collaborative work with Gestaffelstein, Tangerine Dream, and 3D of Massive Attack, as well as 'Glory' with M83, which can be seen below. Electronica 1: The Time Machine is set for release October 16th on Ultra Music with the second installment expected in spring 2016.
