Reserection EP was a 1995 release by French pop star Étienne Daho, working alongside English dance-pop band Saint Etienne. It was only released in France and Japan. The title Reserection is word play between résurrection and érection.
The "resurrection" of the title was a response to rumours at the time that Daho was HIV-positive, or even that he had already died. The opening track, "Reserection", puts the matter to rest as Daho states that he will rise from his "cendres fiction" (fictitious ashes) "encore et encore" (again and again).
The only English song was "Accident", a reworked version of Daho's 1984 French-language hit single "Weekend à Rome", with original English lyrics. Daho's speech from "Reserection" is also reprised within the song. "Jungle Pulse" and "X Amours" are French-language reworkings of Saint Etienne's "Filthy" and "Paper" respectively.
Daho only released "Jungle Pulse" as a single at first, but later Eurodance producer Steve Rodway produced a remix of "Accident" that became "He's on the Phone", released as the single from Saint Etienne's first greatest hits compilation, Too Young to Die - The Singles.
The band later worked with Daho on the single "Le Premier Jour", from his greatest hits compilation Singles.
