Announcing his long awaited return with this distinct message, Sébastien Tellier bounds back to the forefront of our collective musical conscience with his highly anticipated fourth studio album.
With inspiration firmly back in place – the creation of My God is Blue was able to commence. Starting things off in his usual manner, Tellier went about composing his newest creation in his studio in his apartment, before completing the record alongside reputed producer and Ed Banger stalwart, Mr Flash.
Citing artists such as “Michael Jackson and George Michael” as musical inspirations for this album, it’s clear the Tellier hasn’t lost his knack or desire for a pop pinch and serious dance floor appeal. A track such as ‘Cochon Ville’, for example, plays host to enrapturing rhythms and outlandishly catchy melodic hooks designed to entrance, mystify and seduce the listener as only Sébastien Tellier knows how, and to “put the imaginary, put dreams back at the centre of our consciousness.” Throughout his career, Tellier has been inspired, almost infatuated with different mentally, spiritually and physically provocative subjects, with each such infatuation going on to conceive a vision and a theme for an album. From 2004’s Politics, through to the hugely successful Sexuality in 2008, Tellier has spent the past decade practising and mastering the art of igniting a flash of inspiration into a blazing inferno of realised creativity. “I’m always inspired by a current subject, like sexuality, politics, and truth were the subjects of my first album. But in fact, you need to talk about the mystery of these subjects.” It’s this mystery that provides the real spark to these 12 tracks, with deep rooted philosophy woven through the album’s core and transmitted through mystical, sumptuous, spirited lyrics.
From the first rattles of debut single ‘Fantino’ back in 2001, through to the enduring popularity of 2005’s sumptuous ‘La Ritournelle’ and the smash hit success of Eurovision touted ‘Divine’, Tellier has proved himself to be the undisputed king of a pop classic with a psychical, sensual and physical pull. His latest work presents a transcendental record of far reaching prowess and a road to a thoroughly modern, community led enlightenment. My God Is Blue is the work of a composer, a poet, a visionary, an inventor, and it’s merely opening the door to a world of thought and revelation which is yet to fully unfold. His ambition is to “bring back the imaginary, to revive dreaming…” It’s an invitation, and what a glorious place Sébastien Tellier’s imagination is proving to be.
