First single from new album L'Aventura

Sebastien Tellier's forthcoming album L'Aventura - just announced by his new label, Because Music, and released on July 14 - is set in a part-mythical Brazil, and the video for first single 'L'Adulte' takes us to the centre of Rio to watch Tellier mooch around in a loud blazer, interact with city-dwellers and blow smoke into the camera.

Watch the video below to soak in the Galllic-cum-South-American tones, and while doing so, ponder on Tellier's powerful disregard for the elapse of time in his description of the record: "My job as an artist and singer is to run away from reality. You cannot change the present or the future, so if you want to change reality, change the past."
