LUDOVIC NAVARRE aka ST GERMAIN & EMI Music France ANNOUNCE THE RELEASE OF THE LEGENDARY ELECTRONIC ALBUM ‘TOURIST ’ IN A REMASTERED (44KHZ/24BITS) VERSION!
Close to 3 Million in sales including multi-platinum award status in Canada!
Some of you might know St Germain for a long time and some of you don’t. So, St Germain (never Saint Germain) aka Ludovic Navarre, is not a band nor a DJ. He Is really unique in his own genre.
A lot has been said about this album. So no need to say any more. Because in the end, Tourist doesn’t have anything to prove. Been there done that. 3 million albums sold worldwide. Or how an album that sets itself a high standard finds its own audience. A mass audience. This kind of tale is quite rare in the music industry. Because in the end, you can say what you like, Tourist’s appeal completely overwhelmed us. The stuff of dreams for the guys in marketing. He has become the “in” soundtrack in this somewhat stuffy start of the century. You can’t go to a hip restaurant, fashion show, or club without hearing St Germain. And not only in France, it’s a global phenomenon! Few French artists can claim to have outsold the Beatles in New Zealand. There aren’t that many to have had everyone dancing at the Royal Albert Hall either.
Since then, each new EMI France chair has been keeping a sharp lookout for any master tapes that might be lurking on their desk. ..It’s now being murmured that it won’t be long now.
In the meantime, we still haven’t tired of Tourist.”
