L'Aventura arose from Brazilian heat and French romanticism. This is the history of Sebastien Tellier's fantasy childhood in Brazil, arranged by the local cult figure Arthur Verocai -- a wild mixture of love, dreams, sun and landscapes. As Tellier himself states, "For this album I wanted to rewrite my childhood. I chose to place this adventure in Brazil, land of splendor and joy, with an eternal childish soul." The recording produced by the artist took place between Paris and Rio de Janeiro during the year 2013. These adventures brought him into Jean-Michel Jarre's, Bernard Estardy's, and Philippe Zdar's (Cassius/Phoenix) studios. Zdar, who knows so well how to make French music sound international, sublimates the 10 tracks of this album -- halfway between the elegancy and the required level of a maestro and the immediacy of a popular song. This sixth opus was composed and written by Sebastien Tellier. For the first time in his career, all the lyrics are written in French. Gainsbourg is not far away, like a tutelary figure. Christophe is also a springboard, inspiring the use of more space to express himself, and Lucio Battisti made him understand that singing in his native language was possible. L'Aventura is a record of shores stretching to an everlasting new beginning. This is naive art rendered by an open heart and a childish vision of creation, close in spirit to his classic 2008 album Sexuality (REC 046LP). Deluxe gatefold sleeve.
