Yann Tiersen

Reveals new video for ‘A Midsummer Evening’ – first single from new album ‘∞ (Infinity)’.

YannTiersen_KatherineRose02

“so charged with life it crackles” – Metro

“stone-cold masterpiece” – Uncut

“sunny, baroque pop” – The Quietus

“Midsummer Evening, a glorious piece of psych-pop in the vein of MGMT or the Polyphonic Spree.” Simon Price, Wondering Sound

 

Yann Tiersen’s latest album ∞ (Infinity), is out now and you can watch the video for Midsummer Evening here:

 

Directed by Marcus Herring, whose previous videos have included Sebastien Tellier and Kavinsky, the video stars Andy Dick as an average everyday guy dealing with the end of the world, “I wanted to explore the humor in this situation… even though it’s the the last day on Earth, it’s just another mundane bad day for this character”

Midsummer Evening, which was recently remixed by Mogwai – listen here – is taken from the new album, ∞ (Infinity), which premiered last week with a sold out show at the ICA and a live streamed concert from Ushant island, Brittany, available to watch here.

∞ (Infinity) was conceived in Iceland, where work began on the album, and in Ushant Island, Brittany. The album was produced by Yann Tiersen and mixed by Gareth Jones with Yann Tiersen and Daniel Miller.

Layering of textures formed thematic threads that bind the album: the stones, the minerals, their infinite nature… Language too is integral to this album. ‘Ar Maen Bihan’, a story written by Emilie Quinquis in the Breton language, was translated by amiina to Icelandic (‘Steinn’). Elsewhere on the album Aidan Moffat (Arab Strap) and Ólavur Jákupsson (a member of Tiersen’s live band) both contributed tracks on the same theme – stones – Moffat’s in English and Jákupsson’s in Faroese.

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 included 1997 Cascade Street 1998’s The Lighthouse and to 2005’s Les Retrouvailles). The early albums were combined and used for the Amelie soundtrack (2001), earning him global recognition. Recent albums on Mute, Dust Lane (2010) and Skyline (2011) have seen his prominence build, along with projects such as the recent live score to the Fantômas series which he curated at the Théâtre de Châtelet with guests Tim Hecker, James Blackshaw, Loney Dear and Amiina.
