French musician Sebastien Tellier has detailed his forthcoming sixth album L’Aventura, his first for Because Music, which is due out on Monday July 14th 2014.
L'Aventura follows 2013's Confection and sees the singer-songwriter adding exquisite Brazilian tones to his chansons (the album was recorded at the CBE & Futur de L’Audiovisuel studios in Paris, Jean-Michel Jarre's studio in Bougival and Cia dos Tecnicos studio in Rio de Janeiro). Tellier describes the upcoming LP as "a reinvention of childhood. [...] My job as an artist and singer is to run away from reality. You cannot change the present or the future, so if you want to change reality, change the past."
Tellier has also unveiled the video to L'Aventura's first single, 'L'Adulte', in which you can already feel the exotic touch he's added to his music: "Brazilian music is perfect as it's full of mysterious chords and strange melodies, but also light & sunny. I feel my previous albums were just tests to reach this point."
