Artist, composer, performer, Yann Tiersenn may be known for his playful, easy melancholy soundtrack to “Amélie from Montmartre” – but fans and followers know his music styles run the gamut from punky thrashing guitar to notable collaborations with hipster icons like Jane Birkin and the Cocteau Twins’ Elizabeth Fraser.
Along the way Yann Tiersen has turned out acclaimed studio albums such as Les Retrouvailles, Dust Lane, Skyline and EUSA while establishing himself as a top performer in concert halls around the world.
This winter, Yann Tiersen drops his latest album – ALL. Releasing, February 15 2019 – ALL – is the first album to be recorded at Yann Tiersen’s new studio, venue and community centre, The Eskal, built in an abandoned discotheque on the island of Ushant, a small island positioned in the Celtic sea between Brittany and Cornwall, Tiersen’s home for the past 10 years.
The album, mixed and co-produced by Gareth Jones, continues the themes of environment and a connection to nature first explored on EUSA, incorporating recordings from outside of Brittany, such as the redwood forests of California as well as field recordings from Tempelhof airport in Berlin (on ‘Tempelhof’), plus guest vocalists.
