They also played a string of hits from other albums including ‘Cherry Blossom Girl’ from 2004 album ‘Talkie Walkie’, ‘High School Lover’ from their Virgin Suicides soundtrack and closed with ‘Electronic Performers’ from ’10 000 Hz Legend’.

In 2019, NME quizzed Air’s Nicolas Godin on highlights from his career, where he spoke about the possibility of a new Air album. “I think artists and bands have 10 years when you make really great music and after that, it gets less and less good,” he told NME. “We have to be careful because Air is magic and we don’t want to ruin it by doing a substandard album. If we’re able to find that magic, we’ll go into the studio. But if not, we’ll move aside and let other people make those magic records.”
