What the world needs now is another album from Yelle. That’s something I
randomly said a couple of months ago and, somewhat surprisingly, the
universe has delivered. Via Dr. Luke of all people! The French trio’s
third LP Completement Fou was produced entirely by the super-producer
and his associates. It drops September 30 on his label, Kemosabe
Yelle’s irreverent brand of electro-pop has won them a
loyal cult following around the globe but they still seem like an
unlikely fit for the man behind Kesha and Katy Perry‘s mega-hits.
However, the union could turn out to be a masterstroke if the brilliant
title track is any indication. “Completement Fou” is an intoxicating
dose of fizzy French techno — complete with rave keys and a monster
chorus. So far, so good. Listen to the electro-anthem (and see the LP’s
full tracklist) after the jump.
