Yann Tiersen's New Album 'Dust Lane' Premieres At


From the tiny isle of Ouessant off the coast of West Britanny comes Dust Lane, the 6th studio album from the wildly multi-talented Yann Tiersen. You won't find too much sonic similarity between his accordion driven soundtrack for "Amelie" and this dark rock record -- his first in English -- though it is no less gorgeous or indeed, cinematic. Here, the classically trained musician explores loss (of both a friend and his mother during recording) with vintage analog synthesizers, electric guitars, mellotron, and piano.

Listen to the entire album right now at! Dust Lane in stores October 12th.
