Q: How are you?
A: Im fine thanks. And you?
Q: You are on tour right now and you played in Nice last night - how did it go?
A: It went extraordinarily good. I felt free on stage. You can never know how the crowd is in advance, so im very greatful of the nice mood we managed to get.
Q: Can you describe a normal reaction on your current liveperformance
A: Specially on festivals people may think im weird. They are often just happy to meet me and see me.
Q: What does sexuality mean to you?
A: It means alot and is a perfect theme. Very deep and covers the whole humanity. Earlier I thought it was politics, but i was wrong - its sexuality that rules the world.
Q: Tell me about your connection to Italy
A: Italy is definitely my favourite country and i especially visit north of italy alot. Beautiful landscapes make me happy. I drink white wine and eat mushrooms there.
Q: You have worked with half of Daft Punk on your latest album. Do you have plans to continue this co-operation?
A: Yes, why not? I think Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo is an amazing producer. Last time we where in the studio in Paris we came up with many new ideas. I love him.
Q: You love Guy-Man?
A: Yes. But you know, not in the same way as my girlfriend.
Q: Do you already have a new theme for your coming album?
A: Not yet. I have to first stop and think about whats happening around me and get a feeling for a new concept. Its too early to find that right now. I have to get a perspective on the whole, to be able to start on something new. All my albums are based on a concept, thats the only way i can make music.
Q: Mention some important stuff in your life
A: Videogames and my girlfriend
Q: You were performing at Flou08 in Helsinki - guess which song everyone was waiting for?
A: Yes, I remember. It was raining and everyone in the audience was yellow (the organizers handed out yellow rain hoods). The song yes, it must have been Divine?
A: Okay, La ritournelle?
Q: Yes. Will we hear it in Tavastia in february?
A: Yes i promise. I love to perfrom with that song.
Q: Speaking of La ritournelle - the song has suddenly appeard in l'oreal tv-commersials. How come?
A: Yes, its true. But it isnt really my song, its a cover. I dont really remember how it went, got an email about it a while ago or something like that. But its okay that its playing in commersials - that way more people get my music. And its L'oreal, it would be worse it was a commersial for ham.
Q: Did you say ham?
A: Yes, or cheese
