Dita Von Teese
Along with her storied career as a burlesque dancer, model, designer, and writer, Dita Von Teese also occasionally works in the world of music. She has appeared in videos for acts such as Green Day, Marilyn Manson, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Monarchy, and Die Antwoord. Von Teese has also collaborated with the latter two acts, lending her whispery vocals to Die Antwoord's "Gucci Coochie" and Monarchy's "Disintegration" and cover of Blur's "Girls Against Boys." In 2016, she curated Soundtrack for Seduction, a compilation of sexy tracks that included Von Teese's version of "A Guy What Takes His Time" and three other songs performed by her. Her biggest foray into music began when Sébastien Tellier saw her dance to one of his songs at Paris' Crazy Horse cabaret; inspired by her ethereal beauty, he wrote an album of delicate electropop songs for her. Von Teese and Tellier recorded in Sydney, Los Angeles, and Paris with keyboardist John Kirby and drummer Daniel Stricker, who produced the album with Tellier under the name Mind Gamers. Dita Von Teese arrived in February 2018.

Gainsbourg and Birkin, Tellier and Von Teese. Daring, sure: but the comparison spatters off the face of Sparkling Rain, and shows up on Rendez-Vous and then La Vie est en jeu where our beauty howls in French. With a glamour tinged with eroticism, this first collaboration, inspired by pleasure, seduces with a mysterious air of unreality. The maestro of French style electro pop has offered the Venus of Michigan the ideal platform for the first striptease act to have ever really laid her bare. It was backstage at Crazy Horse that Tellier first met Von Teese. Who could be more iconic, more novel or more foreign, to be unleashed onto his tailor-made arrangements? He came back to her with a ready-made album, on which she would need to do nothing more than say yes, and lay down her vocals. Through his dark dandy glasses, worn almost askew, Tellier had a clear vision. A hail of sunbeam synths on sensual, poppy love songs written for four hands and his wife Amandine de la Richardière; an angular shadow rather than a mistress, Sparkling Rain fizzes with perfect comic-strip bubbles. © Charlotte Saintoin/Qobuz
