YANN TIERSEN

More from this Band



People ask repeatedly if they can purchase these records and the answer until now has been no. Until now. We are delighted to announce the re-issue of these four incredible albums with updated artwork. LP are re-mastered, and for the first time ever available in English (English versions for CDs will come later) . When the albums were originally released they were predominantly sold in France but subsequently Yann has become known all over the world. For that wider audience the he has painstakingly translated the titles into English, doing it himself to ensure the original meanings and sentiment are kept. Where occasionally the song lyrics are in French, or there is just no other way to say it, the title remains in French. "this is a synthesis of classic virtuosity, post-modern creativity, and popular imagination. Yann Tiersen has produced an album that comprises two movements, because these compositions were originally designed for two plays created last season in Rennes : Freaks (based on the Tod Browning film) and Le Tambourin de Soie (based on a play by Yukio Mishima). (...) The work is highky original, a "future classic" that should not be missed under any circonstances." - La Griffe (weekly newspaper - 10/1995)
