Reserection is an extended play (EP) by English alternative dance band Saint Etienne and French singer Étienne Daho, under the collective name St. Etienne Daho. It was released on 29 September 1995 by Virgin Records. The title is an amalgamation of the words "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.[1] 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").[2]

The only English song on the EP, "Accident", is a reworked version of Daho's 1984 French-language single "Week-end 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: Singles 1990–1995.

The band later worked with Daho on the single "Le Premier Jour", from his greatest hits compilation Singles.
