Système D is the fourth studio album by Les Rita Mitsouko.

The duo moved their studio to a large Moroccan house situated in Essaouira (Formerly Mogador). Tony Visconti was present for some of the recording, but Ringer and Chichin chose to produce the album themselves to find a new sound. The album was completed by American mixer Carmen Rizzo who mixed the album in Paris.[1]
