A Midsummer Evening is the first track from Yann Tiersen’s richly, textured, upcoming album, ∞ (Infinity) –  out on Mute Records May 2oth.

“The idea was to start with toy instruments as a reference to my early works, then manipulate the sounds electronically. Then I added a new layer of acoustic instrumentation, and repeated the same process. Finally I repeated the process once more with strings, so the whole album was a constant back and forth from acoustic to electronic to digital, and then back to analogue.” (Yann Tiersen)
