The song was specifically written for live performance as part of JARRE’s most recent Electronica world tour, not intended for inclusion on an album. “It’s a very strange title but it fits in some personal way a track I can see for stage. I had no idea to integrate this track in an album but I thought I could fit it in this ‘Sequence’ part of Planet Jarre,” says JARRE. “I’m quite glad this piece of music I can see for stage will be in a studio version.” “Herbalizer” is one of two recently composed and previously unreleased tracks along with “Opening Coachella” on the album.

About JEAN-MICHEL JARRE:
JEAN-MICHEL JARRE has been one of the pioneering forces throughout the electronic music scene over the last five decades, having originally made his name in the 1970s for his critically acclaimed album OXYGENEOXYGENE was unmistakably a catalyst that set electronic music well on its way to becoming the behemoth that it is today, with JEAN-MICHEL’s music and follow through albums (Equinoxe, Magnetic Fields, Rendez-Vous, Chronology…) breaking down boundaries of composing and production paving the path for what has become today the most popular genre of music of all time.  With over 80 million albums sold worldwide to date, musicians and contemporary DJs often refer to JARRE’s influence and innovation, not only for his music but also for his singular vision and creation of outdoor concerts experience.  JEAN-MICHEL JARRE’s legendary concerts have attracted Guinness Record-breaking audiences, with his live shows, often, if not always, taking place in some of the most extraordinary settings worldwide. He was the first western musician ever to be invited to perform in post-Mao China, and has also played the likes of the Great Pyramids in Egypt, The Sahara Desert and The Eiffel Tower, in addition to perhaps his most famous performance ever, where he played to a record 3.5 million people in Moscow. All in all, JARRE has held Guinness World Records for the largest live audiences over the continents not withstanding his memorable one-off city-scale concert in Houston in 1986 for NASA’s 25th Anniversary and in a moving commemoration of the Challenger Mission to which over 1.3 million people gathered to share this groundbreaking show at the foot of Houston’s skyline.
 
JEAN-MICHEL JARRE is synonymous with the legendary as he continues to break new ground with each piece of music and live performance.
