1000 copies only pre-release limited edition.

"Massaging your ears with their cheeky bossa-nova grooves and sultry Gainsbourg-and-Bardot-esque vocals are 'The Lovers'.
The cheeky and lustful tête á tête that French duo Marion Benoist and Fred de Fred coolly play out in each track is amusing, romantic and at times achingly sexual (see La Dégustation ). If ever there was music that was created to inspire a feeling of romance, paired with a sparkle of lust, then this is surely it.

Fred and Marion have had some stunning experiences so far, some strange, all of them intriguing - from smuggling to bunny girls, Nightmares on Wax to Jarvis Cocker – and it is all documented in their music.
If you've become somewhat obsessed with The Lovers, we assure you it's perfectly natural. Marion and Fred at their avant electro-pop finest, we urge you to buy it and offer it to someone special. We're sure they will love it! " DEFUNKTION (Olly Farshi)

'The Lovers' album - Limited Edition for France (1000) and Japan (500) by Sheffield Designers Peter and Paul. Available @ Colette in Paris and @ Bonjour in Tokyo and Osaka.

This special release of 'The Lovers' album has provoked comment and admiration recently, and sets a new standard in niche packaging. The album comes slipped into a discreet pocket in the back of a small, but beautifully presented black satin cushion, and is embellished with The Lovers logo, embroidered in gold thread in the centre. The cushion is appropriately trimmed with sexy black lace, and is scented with rose-and-vanilla for those reflective moments!
