Dita Von Teese has dropped a new love song just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Titled ‘Porcelain’, the track is a collaboration with French musician Sebastien Teller and will feature on her forthcoming album.
Speaking of the track, Teese said: “When I understood that Sébastien had a duet in mind with “Porcelaine”, I was excited because I love his voice and I instantly thought of Serge Gainsbourg.
“But don’t think Sébastien is a copy of Gainsbourg, he’s as good as him“. And for Sebastien Tellier, who wrote it, “the song is about Dita’s white skin, too perfect to be real”. Listen to ‘Porcelain’ below.
Dita Von Teese’s debut full length album ‘Dita Von Teese’ will be released this Friday (Feb 16th) on Record Makers. The album was produced by Tellier, who approached Von Teese directly about the project. You can see the artwork below.
Teese launched her music career back in November with the release of her debut single ‘Rendez-vous’.
“When I saw Dita dance to a piece of music I had written for her, I had a feeling that her physical presence and her personality were a perfect fit with my music and I started to compose only for her,” Tellier said of working with Teese. “When you think that you’ve finally pierced Dita’s mystery, she turns out to be more than ever, a creature of dreams, totally out of reach.”
Von Teese herself added: “I’m not a professional singer. In fact, I’m quite uneasy about recording my voice. But I do enjoy the thrill of doing things that are outside of my comfort zone. When I performed for the first time at the Crazy Horse in Paris, I invited Sebastien because I was such a fan, not daring to imagine that someday he would compose an entire album for me.”
