Sebastien Tellier: L'Adulte (Music Video)
We have new details on Sebastien Tellier's forthcoming album, L’Aventura, and the video for L’Adulte, the first track to be taken from the album which is scheduled for release July 14th 2014.
L’Aventura is a concept set in a part-mythical Brazil, cinematic and adventurous, musically it adds exquisite Brazilian tones to Tellier’s usual idiosyncratic palate of Gallic pop & chanson, baroque and electronic. The album is what Tellier equally describes as, “a reinvention of childhood” – namely his own. My job as an artist and singer is to run away from reality. You cannot change the present or the future, so if you want to change reality, change the past.”
Sung mostly in French, but with the occasional English & Italian phrases, Tellier admits that L’Aventura represents a new benchmark in his ambition to marry “complex chords and complex melodies. But without the intellectual or boring side. Brazilian music is perfect as it’s full of mysterious chords and strange melodies, but also light & sunny. I feel my previous albums were just tests to reach this point.”
