Sebastien Tellier (MySpace) is back at it again, only this time he's got Guy-Manuel de Homem Christo of Daft Punk serving production duties!
We're pretty sure you've already heard the stellar "Sexual Sportswear" track from Tellier's forthcoming Sexuality (a spicy one!) -- in case you've not, the video's after the jump -- and now we offer you a new sample tune from the LP, "Divine."
Quite a bit different than "Sexual Sportswear," divine sounds more like a sleazy Beach Boys song straight from the 60s but with a ... unmistakable French essence. Literally, this song sounds like it could've been on the La Boum soundtrack. It's perfect. Here's what Mr. Tellier makes of the single himself:
A tribute to the Beach Boys and the Juicy Fruits (from the 1974 musical Phantom of the Paradise). It’s about a time of innocence – when having fun was more important than picking up girls.If only there were a few "shooby dooby"s ... everything would be perfect. Right, so stream and download a lower-quality MP3 below and don't forget to check out the "Sexual Sportswear" video! It's ... quite sexy -- like a James Bond film opening credit -- and man does that song rock.
