Music Written & Composed by Sébastien Tellier
Valentine’s Day is a day for lovers, romantic talks, and emotional perspectives! Here comes “Porcelaine,” the perfect sound bed for a day like that; a duet between the queen of burlesque and the most romantic French musician since… Serge Gainsbourg. Their voices blend perfectly on this slow jam. It is Dita’s favorite song from her forthcoming album, just because she sings it with Sébastien. How romantic.
Dita Von Teese says: “When I understood that Sébastien had a duet in mind with ‘Porcelaine’, I was excited because I love his voice and I instantly thought of Serge Gainsbourg. But don’t think Sébastien is a copy of Gainsbourg, he’s as good as him”
And for Sébastien Tellier, who wrote it, “the song is about Dita’s white skin, too perfect to be real”
The track appears on her forthcoming self-titled debut album, out this Friday February 16 via the Parisian label Record Makers. Listen via Billboard and share “Porcelaine” here. Buy “Porcelaine” via Apple Music. Pre-order Dita Von Teese here.
Recorded in Sydney, Los Angeles and Paris, “Dita Von Teese” owes much to the talents of composer Sébastien Tellier, the singing of Dita Von Teese and the art of two instrumentalists — the programmer and keyboard player, John Kirby, famous for his work with Blood Orange, Money Mark and Solange, and Daniel Stricker, the drummer of the Australian group the Midnight Juggernauts— who coproduced the album with Sébastien Tellier, under the name of Mind Gamers.
