Does it have sexy potential? Is it in any way sex-related? American Apparel said yes on both counts and is collabing with Record Makers to exclusively release French "singer-songwriter and pop instrumentalist" Sebastien Tellier's latest album Sexuality in the US and Canada. From the site devoted to the release: "Limited edition versions of the Sexuality CD, LP and 'Divine' 7” and 12” single will be sold in exclusive three month prerelease in stores and online at www.americanapparel.net."
Of course, there is a retail angle for the T-shirt label: "To promote 'Sexual Sportswear', the album’s first single, American Apparel created two exclusive garments—the SexualiT and SexualiTank—which will be in stores for a limited time only." The tee is $34 and the tank is $26.
