Tour de France Soundtracks is the tenth studio album by German electronic music band Kraftwerk, released in August 2003. It was re-released in October 2009 under the title Tour de France. The album was recorded for the 100th anniversary of the first Tour de France bicycle race, although it missed its intended release date for the actual tour. It includes a new recording of their 1983 single of the same name, the cover artwork of both releases being nearly identical.

And well, eventually we did get a new Kraftwerk album in 2003. It would only make sense that the electronic music that they influenced would in turn come back to influence them in those 17 years. This is a great album. I enjoy it just as much as their old ones, and in fact more than a few. Antworten Mich bei Antworten benachrichtigen Helpful.

Tour de France Soundtracks is the tenth studio album by German electronic music pioneers Kraftwerk. It was released on August 4, 2003 after much anticipation, becoming their first release since 1986’s Electric Café. The album’s recording process took around 16 years. The title track was initially released way back in June of 1983 and was originally intended to be part of the band’s scrapped Techno Pop album concept. Inspiration for the album came from the Tour de France bicycle race and the band’s newfound obsession for cycling in general. Tracks on the album use sounds of bicycle chains, gear mechanisms and cyclists breathing to build percussion patterns.

From the time Hutter and Schneider hooked up in Düsseldorf in the late 60s to their heyday of the late 70s/early 80s and on through their complete catalog reworking (1991's The Mix), Kraftwerk have been a model of efficiently planned obsolescence

Tour de France Soundtracks (re-released in 2009 as Tour de France) is the tenth studio album by Kraftwerk, released in August 2003. themed around the annual French Tour de France bicycle race, and bicycling in general. It includes a new recording of their 1983 single of the same name, the cover artwork of both releases being nearly identical

Tour de France Soundtracks, the group's first record in more than 15 years, is quintessentially Kraftwerk but still fits in well with contemporary dance trends like the experimental microhouse scene (highly influenced by the group's ultra-minimalism). The story of Tour de France Soundtracks actually begins 20 years earlier, in 1983, when Kraftwerk released the "Tour de France" single.
