Today's musical treat: "A secret place", by Yann Tiersen

Yann Tiersen's been featured on my blog quite a few times by now (e.g. here or here or here or here), hence, without much ado, here's the perfect musical gift for today: a. the splendid, "naked", instrumental version; b. a "dressed up" version, in collaboration with Tindersticks frontman Stuart Staples (Tindersticks won't escape from being subject to one of my future posts, so stay tuned...): this is the version from Tiersen's album Les Retrouvailles. Enjoy!

Maestre, serios de nu ai nas pentru cele mai tari piese
Am scos deja tot albumu' de pe net

Domn Nicu, eu tare ma mir ca ti-a luat atat timp sa realizezi asta :-)

This album is the best of Yann so far. Interesting that I did not hear before the instrumental version, that must be older than the version from the CD?

No idea, Tony, but I guess first there was the instrumental and then Tiersen thought of collaborating with Staples to get the album version. An excellent result, obviously.

PS. One of the best albums of Tiersen, would be difficult for me to rank them very clearly :-).
