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.
