Yann Tiersen

brand new album ‘Skyline’

Out Autumn 2011
New single ‘Monuments’ out 8 August
UK Dates including Roundhouse, Jeff Mangum’s ATP and Latitude
Yann Tiersen announces details of a brand new album, Skyline, out in autumn 2011, plus a series of dates, his first since the sold out UK, European and US dates that accompanied Dust Lane. The UK dates include a headline show at London’s Roundhouse, Latitude festival in July and Jeff Mangum’s ATP in December.
Skyline is Yann Tiersen’s seventh studio album, and sees Tiersen taking a confident step forward, cementing the sound of its darker sister, the critically acclaimed Dust Lane, which was released almost exactly 12 months previously.
Monuments, the first single release from Skyline, shows Tiersen and his band own the world he now inhabits, a world of vintage synths, electric guitars, all unpinned by his incredible songwriting and musicianship. It’s a marked contrast to the Tiersen that people imagine they know, but it’s a world that he would argue he’s been in all along – it’s only now everyone else is catching up.
In Monuments a lyrical repetition muses our place in the world and the traces of ourselves we leave behind – “all monuments of men, they’re sinking in vain”. And yet, wrapped in a chorus of vocals and shimming guitars the message isn’t dark, rather it’s full of hope.
Skyline was recorded between Paris, San Francisco & and Ouessant, a tiny island off the coast of West Britanny and mixed by Ken Thomas (Sigur Ros, M83, David Bowie, Psychic TV).  As always the music stems from Tiersen, whose long periods of recording alone are broken with spells with input from a cast of musicians.  An array of vintage synths add billowing, analogue textures, electric guitars and bass bring layers of fuzz and distortion. Songs slip from their moorings, take off on new and unexpected currents. “My plan was also to play with contrast between electric and quite dense parts and more sober and minimal quiet parts including piano and strings,” he adds. So, voices join together in chorus, arcing violins and crashing drums build towards mighty fanfares – but then, clouds part, squall recedes to silence, and mournful piano and strings guide you home.
With support on the UK tour from Lanterns On The Lake, Yann Tiersen returns to the UK for a series of shows, his first since 2010′s sold out KOKO show, that include the Roundhouse in London, Latitude festival in July and at the Jeff Mangum curated All Tomorrow’s Parties in December.
