Stardust ‘Music Sounds Better With You’ 20th-anniversary reissue is coming

Stardust’s iconic 1998 single “Music Sounds Better With You,” will hit streaming platforms for the first time on June 28th, with a 12-inch vinyl reissue out the same day. The record is available to pre-order now via Because Music.

The French house trio — electronic artist Alan Braxe, Daft Punk producer/instrumentalist Thomas Bangalter and singer Benjamin Diamond — originally wrote the song to play during a live gig at the popular Rex Club in Paris. They later recorded the track, which is built on a funky guitar sample from Chaka Khan’s 1981 disco cut “Fate,” at Bangalter’s studio.

Stardust originally released “Music Sounds Better With You” on July 20th, 1998 via the Roulé label. The single became a hit throughout the French nightclub scene and later gained traction throughout Europe and North America — eventually earning regular rotation on MTV with a video from filmmaker Michel Gondry.
