 Here’s some info. about Morgan’s work with M83 from the press release:

“In 2008 she contributed keys and arrangements for the band’s acclaimed release Saturdays=Youth, and co-wrote the songs “Kim & Jessie”, “Up!”, “Too Late” and “Skin of the Night”. She also received a shared production credit on the album and toured extensively with the group around the world in support of the release. In 2011, she returned to the studio with M83 to contribute to their sixth album Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, providing vocals, keyboards, and arrangements. She co-wrote the songs “Intro”, “Reunion”, and the album’s ubiquitous lead single “Midnight City”, which enjoyed massive chart success globally and has sold over 920,000 tracks in the U.S. alone.”

Morgan has been a fan and critic’s favorite among remix artists for quite some time now, having worked with such artists as Imagine Dragons, Sch0ol of Seven Bells, The Naked and Famous, Active Child, Demi Lovato, New Politics, Manchester Orchestra, Kevin Devine, Lord Huron, and even the one and only Britney Spears.  (Imagine how much better Britney’s new album could have been had Morgan produced it!)
