Yann Tiersen is one of the most revered French artists of his generation with a reputation first established by his studio albums (which include 1998's Le Phare
and 2005's Les Retrouvailles
) and cemented by his work on the original film score of Amelie
(2001) which earned him widespread recognition.
Produced by Yann Tiersen and mixed by Ken Thomas (Sigur Rós, M83, Moby), Dust Lane sees Tiersen incorporate vintage electronic sounds and textures into his music for an album he describes as "a journey on the dusty lane that leads us to death. Not a sad thing, but like a colourful, sometimes painful, but mostly joyful experience: life!"
