Yann Tiersen Tours New Album All
Perhaps best known as the composer of wistful French cinema gem Amelie, Yann Tiersen's work spans an impressive breadth of film soundtracks, collaborations and solo studio albums. Active since 1995, the multi-instrumentalist builds lush sonic worlds around the simplest and most satisfying of melodies, which cascade from his ivory-tickling fingertips to stir the very depths of the listener's soul. Timed to coincide with the February 2019 release of his brand new album All, Tiersen will be bringing his fresh material to US shores during a hotly a hotly anticipate European and North American tour.
Recorded and co-produced with Depeche Mode and Erasure affiliate Gareth Jones, All was created in Tiersen's studio The Eskal in Ushant, a small Celtic sea island. It's first single Tempelhof promises more heart-string tugging fare that balances delicate piano reveries with warm electronic samples and audio snippets of nature. Continuing the thematic exploration of environment started on his last album EUSA, Tiersen centers songs around field recordings from the Redwood forests of California, Berlin's Tempelhof airport and Brittany.
