YANN TIERSEN – New Mute Signing, New Album & UK Tour
aaamusic | On 02, Aug 2010
Mute are delighted to announce the signing of Yann Tiersen and the release of his brand new, long awaited album, Dust Lane, out in 4 October 2010.
Hailing from Brittany, Yann Tiersen is one of the most revered artists of his generation with a reputation first established by his studio albums (which include 1998s Le Phare and 2005s Les Retrouvailles) and cemented by his work on the original film score of Amelie (2001) which earned him widespread recognition.
Produced by Yann Tiersen and mixed by Ken Thomas (Sigur Rós, M83, Moby), Dust Lane sees Tiersen incorporate vintage electronic sounds and textures into his music for an album he describes as a journey on the dusty lane that leads us to death. Not a sad thing, but like a colourful, sometimes painful, but mostly joyful experience: life!
Yann Tiersen has a formidable live reputation and returns to the UK in October and November this year for a series of dates that includes Koko in London on 3rd November. The UK tour is preceded by an appearance at La Route du Rock in St Malo, France on 13th August.
