Sébastien Tellier | Cochon Ville

Sébastien Tellier is a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Paris, France. He is currently signed to Record Makers.

Tellier’s first album, L’incroyable vérité (The Incredible Truth), was released in 2001. Tellier went on tour with Air in support of the album. The track ” Fantino” off the album was chosen by Sofia Coppola for the soundtrack to her 2003 film “Lost in Translation”. Tellier followed L’incroyable Vérité with his second studio album Politics (2005). A particularly popular song from Politics was “La ritournelle”, a string-led tune, which featured Nigerian drummer, Tony Allen of Fela Kuti fame. “La Ritournelle” was remixed by various artists, notably in Britain by Metronomy.
