Yelle announce new album, share euphoric new track “Karaté”

“Karaté” is taken from Yelle‘s upcoming fourth album L’ère du Verseau, out September 4.

Six years after their excellent record Complètement Fou, French duo Yelle (Jean-François Perrier aka GrandMarnier + Julie Budet) have finally announced the release of their fourth album. Following on from “Je t’aime encore,” a bitter love letter addressed to their home country, they’re now back with something totally euphoric. With its syncopated syllables and short sentences, the second single lifted from the album sounds a bit Japanese. It’s actually not a coincidence as it is titled “Karaté”. Like this martial art, it is definitely frontal and straightforward; everything we need at the moment. Listen below and pre-order the album.
