New Release: Yann Tiersen – EUSA


Yann Tiersen has today announced a brand new album, EUSA, due for release in September

The new album will feature 10 new solo piano pieces, each relating to a specific location
on the island of Ushant, just off the coast of Brittany (‘Eusa’ in Breton), where Tiersen resides

Take a listen to a recently-released track, titled Porz Goret, below…

Tiersen writes about the record…
“Ushant is more than just a home – it’s a part of me. The idea was to make a map of the island and, by extension, a map of who I am. To begin with I chose ten locations on the island and made a series of field recordings at each of them. The pieces of piano music I then went on to write are named after these locations, and the sheet music for each piece is accompanied by a GPS coordinate and a photograph of the site taken by Emilie Quinquis”

A trailer for the album, showing a crane delivering the piano to 48°26’ 19”N 5°6’ 40”W,
(aka Porz Goret) on the island, can be seen below…
