Yann Tiersen released Skyline, playing NYC tonight and tomorrow


In October of last year, French musician Yann Tiersen released his seventh studio album Skyline in the UK and the rest of Europe. Last week on April 17, the album was finally released here in the US on ANTI- Records. What’s with the delay in releases across continents lately? A friend of mine in France just told me last night how much The Avengers sucked, and as far as I know, I can’t/won’t come to that conclusion until next Friday. What gives?

Perhaps to soften the blow of disappointment that will inevitably overcome my inner twelve-year old comic book fan next week, I should take consolation in the fact that Tiersen will be playing Irving Plaza tonight (4/27) and Music Hall of Williamsburg tomorrow (4/28)—both sure to be excellent shows. See how I somehow just made a correlation between comic books and live avant-garde music? Really weird. Tickets are still on sale for the Irving Plaza show tonight, but tomorrow’s show is sold out.

Yann Tiersen’s New York City dates are part of a large tour, which will bring him around the country and into Canada up until the end of May, and then back over to Europe during the summer. All tour dates are listed below. You can also listen to five songs off of Skyline down there. And just for fun, a really terrible fan poster for a sequel to The Avengers
