Check out new video 'L'amour naissant' on Clash...
Sebastien Tellier

Sebastien Tellier is set to release new album ‘Confection’ on November 11th.

What is it about the French? Sitting a few miles across the channel, the nation seems to delight in producing idiosyncratic, inspirational figures.

Figures like Sebastien Tellier. The bearded, probing, pivotal songwriter is in the middle of a purple patch, with new album ‘Confection’ set to be released on November 11th.

With his work veering between synth-pop and orchestral grandeur, new cut ‘L'amour naissant’ is raising hopes. Buoyed by some jazz-tinged drumming and piano chords draped in melancholy, it features a glorious vocal turn from Tellier.

The video for the track finds the French artist in a mystical guise, overseeing the re-union of two lovers on a windswept beach.

Watch it now.

'Confection' is set to be released on November 11th.
