(Audio Stream of the Track Here)

Télépopmusik today posted not one but two new videos for “Fever”, a track featuring New York vocalist Betty Black from their upcoming full-length, due in early 2014.

The first “official” video, directed by Lou Chaussalet, captures a near death experience on a beach in the Southwest of France. The video is available on the band’s Youtube channel, here.

The second (alternate) video, directed by Michaël Borras A.K.A Systaime, offers a more salacious take on “Fever.  "The clip is a metaphor for desire, explored through an experience of a fantasized lover relationship, and captured on-screen through the internet,” says Systaime. “It is in the uninhabited space of the camera frame and in the space outside the frame, this “elsewhere”, that the poetic force of internet streaming acts, and from which we cannot detach ourselves for the fear of never being able to return.” The NSFW video can be found here.

On the remix front, Télépopmusik is also releasing today a new remix of “Fever” by Tulip. Formerly known as Play Paul and Ryskee, releasing tracks on labels such as Roulé, Kitsune and Gigolo Records, Tulip’s “cold wave” vibe works nicely with the original moody, deep and hypnotic flavor of the original track, adding a bit more tension and dance floor beats. Grab the audio stream of the track here.

It’s been over a decade since Télépopmusik’s first release, Genetic World, and more specifically the slinky, Grammy-nominated track “Breathe” featuring Scottish vocalist Angela McCluskey, which nearly defined an era of sophisticated, down-tempo French music (along with compatriots Air, Les Rythmes Digitales and Dimitri from Paris) in the mid 2000s.

Comprised of 2Square and Antipop, French electronic act Télépopmusik revealed the first 2 tracks from their third studio album (due in 2014) this past summer: a 2-song EP remix bundle, Fever/Try Me Anyway, featuring NY-based vocalist Betty Black and remixes from Dirty ChannelsZombie Disco SquadPopulettePit Spector & Pino Rastovitch.
Télépopmusik’s new album will continue a long-standing collaborative tradition, featuring the vocal talents of New York’s own Betty Black (aka Sylvia Gordon of KUDU) & Swedish singer Johanna Wedin, as well as the return of the now US-based (and ever iconic) Angela McCluskey and some other surprise guests.

"…it’s been a long freaking time since Télépopmusik dropped their last full-length, and we can finally rejoice in their comeback." – Death and Taxes

“…a calming, warm wash of water that seduces with its surprising showcase of New York-based singer, Betty Black.” – Baeble Music

Watch for a new full-length from Télépopmusik in 2014!
