Yann Tiersen's Full 2014 North American Tour Announced

Yann Tiersen has announced a brand new album, (Infinity), out on May 20th and a full North American tour kicking off with two performances on May 25th and 26th in Mexico, at Teatro De La Ciudad "Esperanza Iris." Yann will continue touring throughout the US with stops in New York, Montreal, Toronto, Chicago, Seattle and Los Angeles.

Tickets will be on sale starting Wednesday, March 12th at 11 AM EST for 48 hours. Fans who pre-order the (Infinity) album with their ticket will receive an autographed postcard and discounted album pricing. General ticket on-sale starts Saturday, March 15th.

(Infinity) is the follow up to 2011's critically acclaimed Skyline, and will be premiered at an exclusive live performance at the ICA in London on May 14th (which sold out in less than 5 hours).

Tiersen has worked with native language speakers to include tracks sung and spoken in Breton (Ar Maen Bihan), Faroese (Grønjørð) and Icelandic on (Steinn). Drawing upon these dialogues that are so rich in tradition and heritage Tiersen was inspired to create three video prologues, each offering a different, and slightly other worldly, window onto one of the three Islands as introductions to his new record (Infinity).

(Infinity) was conceived in Iceland, where work began on the album and in Ushant Island, Brittany. The album was produced by Yann Tiersen and mixed by Gareth Jones with Yann Tiersen and Daniel Miller.

Hailing from Brittany, Yann Tiersen is one of the most revered artists of his generation with a reputation first established by his studio albums (which included 1997 Cascade Street 1998's The Lighthouse andto 2005's Les Retrouvailles). The early albums were combined and used for the Amelie soundtrack (2001), earning him global recognition. Recent albums on Mute, Dust Lane (2010) and Skyline (2011) has seen his prominence build, along with projects such as the recent live score to the Fantômasseries which he curated at the Théâtre de Châtelet with guests Tim Hecker, James Blackshaw, Loney Dear and Amiina.
