2001 The Sébastien Tellier story began with L’incroyable verite – A record filled with sorrow, made for crying under candlelight. A carefree album mixed by Quentin Dupieux, completely devoid of drums / percussion. An introspective journey to the boundaries of the universe and intimacy where Sebastien, drowsy and bedraggled, embarks on a search for lost time without leaving his bed (Pink Floyd, Robert Wyatt, a certain mindset of the 70’s). An entity borne out of wanderings in the gardens of French music. At Record Makers HQ (Air’s former label), the singularity of the record is thoroughly endorsed.

2004 Sébastien Tellier opens his bedroom window and discovers something crazy: the outside world. With his second album, Politics, (Tony Allen on drums, Philippe Zdar on production duties), he covers the globe in huge strides (Africa, US, South America …) to try and make sense of it all. La Ritournelle, an epic, romantic piece, really caused a stir. It convinced every listener of one thing – Sébastien Tellier is an important artist.

2006 After Sessions, a process of catching up and reinvigorating his repertoire (as well as Christophe’s sublime “Dolce Vita” ) with the help of Simon Dalmais on piano, Sébastien locked himself away into a Parisian recording studio Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo (one half of Daft Punk) behind the controls to produce the next instalment of his adventures.
