NEW ALBUM ‘DOMESTICATED’ FOLLOWS ON MAY 29TH

We’ve come to expect the unexpected from the consistently inspiring Sébastien Tellier. Always one to detour into creative sonic adventures and leftfield lyricism, the Parisian pop genius today shares his new track ‘Stuck In A Summer Love’. It previews his upcoming sixth studio album ‘Domesticated’ which will be released on May 29th and follows the recent singles ‘A Ballet’ and Domestic Tasks.’


 
Capturing a fresh take on the spirit of his landmark track ‘La Ritournelle’, ‘Stuck In A Summer Love’ is a dreamy exploration of sensual beats, sparkling keys and fantastical Franco-pop, a homage to dance productions from the early 2000s. It finds Tellier conjuring the emotions of a sun-kissed romance: one that somehow lingers in the heart long after darkness falls on the fleeting affair.
 
“It’s about being caught in the past, the old teenager I was,” he reflects. “It’s full of emotion, but also it’s like a caterpillar. She’s fat and strong. I was very proud of that. It was always my wish to make a song like it, but I never found a way.”
 
The track was produced by Corentin ‘nit’ Kerdraon, mixed/mastered by Nk.F and features drums courtesy of Daniel Stricker.
 
The song is launched alongside a video that was directed by long time collaborator Mrzyk & Moriceau (JusticeThe AvalanchesAir), who previouly directed the hit track ‘Look’, with animation from L’Incroyable Studio. Equally as unorthodox as the track, the blissfully offbeat video depicts an animated Tellier driving a vehicle styled in the shape of his face. Things get stranger still, as everything he witnesses is subverted into trippy representations of love and especially sexuality.
 
‘Stuck In A Summer Love’ is one of Tellier’s personal favourites from the ‘Domesticated’ album. It plays on the concept of finding the extraordinary aspects in the daily grind of domestic chores. The result is a taut and concise eight track set, an electronica record that buzzes with humanity and the most insistent melodies of his career so far.
 
‘Domesticated’ will be released on digital, vinyl and CD formats, and is available to pre-order here.
 
Throughout an influential career that spans two decades, Sébastien Tellier has forged his own unique journey. It has resulted in his track ‘La Ritournelle’ being named in NME’s list of the Best Tracks of the Past 15 Years, being sampled by The Weeknd, collaborating with everyone to Jean-Michel Jarre to Daft PunkSofia Coppola and Karl Lagerfield, and gatecrashiig the Eurovision Song Contest in a golf cart in a truly Parisian chic style that only a pop genius like himself can carry on.
