French Techno-Pop Singer Debuts New Video, ‘Ce Jeu;’

on Perez Hilton’s website August 1st


Exclusive iTunes Live EP Joins ‘POP UP’ Album  

(New York, NY – July 29, 2008) –  Following a smashingly successful springtime swing through North America that hit both coasts, Canada and the Coachella Festival, the fascinating and irrepressible Astralwerks singer-songwriter YELLE will return to the U.S. with her exuberant three-man stage show for a series of club dates in October (full schedule below).  In the meantime, the French pop-sensation will release a music video for the new single “Ce Jeu” (This Game), an irresistibly hooky pastiche of Eighties club rhythms and visuals, that will premiere August 1st on the notorious celebrity website

 Yelle’s growing American following can also sample the singer’s energetic live show with the recent release of iTunes Live: London Festival 08 EP.


Accompanying Yelle on tour is album producer GrandMarnier on drums and vocals and collaborator/remixer Tepr on keyboards and programming.  The five songs on iTunes Live: London Festival 08 EP were recorded during Yelle’s triumphant July 10th performance at London’s famous KOKO club.  Before returning Stateside, Yelle will conclude her world-wide festival tour on August 10th at Japan’s Summersonic Festival.


Fusing a young lifetime’s worth of pop-culture influences with a fearless, DIY approach to lyric writing and a magnetic vocal presence, YELLE’s album POP-UP was a Top 10 charter on Billboard’s Top Electronic Albums listing, and also entered the Heatseekers chart shortly after its Stateside release in April 2008. (It was released digitally late in 2007, and charted among iTunes’ top-selling electronic albums.) Yelle was Artist of the Week earlier in 2008, in MTV’s 52 Bands / 52 Weeks program.
