Look by Sébastien Tellier

Sébastien Tellier is a French singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. He is currently signed to Record Makers, a French independent record label. He sings in English, French and Italian. Tellier’s first album, L’incroyable Vérité (The Incredible Truth), released in 2001, is a pop album featuring styles from lo-fi electronica to bizarre cabaret tunes. Its sleeve featured Tellier in full evening dress on the front, while the back of jacket had a shot of him cavorting in a playboy’s pool. He instructed listeners only to listen to the album by candlelight. Tellier followed L’incroyable Vérité with his second studio album Politics (2005). Since the release of Politics, Tellier has also recorded an acoustic album of his more popular songs, Sessions (2006). The album was repackaged for the British market as Universe (2006), to include both highlights from the French CD, as well as compositions from Tellier’s score for the film Narco. His third studio album Sexuality was produced by Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo of Daft Punk. Like his previous album Politics, Tellier used a single term as title and theme of the album. The album Confection was released in October 2013. This was partially inspired by the death of Tellier’s grandmother. Some of the music on the album was intended to appear on a film soundtrack, but ended up not being used. The album L’Aventura, was released on 14 July 2014. The album was inspired by Brazil, where the video to its lead single, L’Adulte, is set.
