Yes, they’re back! After eight years the French electronic group Télépopmusik has announced that they will be releasing a new album by the end of 2013. Last month they quietly released a two-song EP, Try Me Anyway / Fever. This week the group released an official music video for Try Me Anyway featuring Betty Black.
Télépopmusik is of course best remembered for their 2001 dreamy, astral song “Breathe” which featured guest vocalist Angela McCluskey. The massive success of “Breathe” subsequently had McCluskey singing in most of the songs on the group’s followup album, Angel Milk (2005), helping to define Télépopmusik’s signature atmospheric sound. McCluskey will again lend her voice in the new upcoming album. However only two of the original members, 2 Square and Antipop, will be producing songs for the album while the third member, Dumont, continues to focus on managing his own label, G.U.M., which houses artist like Woodkid and The Shoes.
