When was Outro released?

Outro was released as a final track on M83’s sixth album, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, and is frequently used in a number of adverts, movies, trailers and TV shows today.

The album was released in 2011, but has not lost its appeal as it charted for several weeks in France in 2015.

Fans may remember the song being used in the shows such as Gossip Girl (season five, episode 11), Vampire diaries (season 5, episode 18) and the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show (2015).

The band is most well-known to reality fans for their Midnight City song, which is the Made in Chelsea theme tune.
