“11 5 18. 1 12. 12 15 3 8" by Yann Tiersen is Northern Transmissions Song of the Day.

Yann Tiersen, has shared the latest single from his forthcoming album, 11 5 18 2 5 18, set for release June 10 via Mute on CD and digital platforms. A limited edition clear double vinyl with etching will follow on September 30. The new track, “11 5 18. 1 12. 12 15 3 8,” expands into club territories from elemental beginnings. Tiersen will embark on an extensive, electronics-heavy tour this June in support of 11 5 18 2 5. Planned dates include stops across The United States, Mexico, Canada, and Europe throughout the year.

The new album, 11 5 18 2 5 18, was born from experimentation in the studio ahead of a performance at Superbooth, Berlin’s modular and synthesizer festival. With more time than usual to prepare for his live set, Tiersen found himself in his Eskal Studio on the French island of Ushant completing the story he started with 2021’s Kerber – presenting a beautifully textured and highly immersive electronic world.

Using samples as his source, Tiersen has resampled, reprogrammed, and recomposed audio to create entirely new tracks unrecognizable and decontextualized from their original versions. Where Kerber took a more nuanced and subtle approach to the electronics, 11 5 18 2 5 18 brings the listener into new sonic spaces and – as recent live performances can attest – these spaces include the dance floor.
