Sarstedt was born in Delhi, India,[2][3][4] in 1941, where his parents, both themselves classical trained musicians, were civil servants in the British administration. He attended Victoria Boys' School in Kurseong, in the Darjeeling district of West Bengal, where his parents administrated a large tea plantation. His family returned to Britain in 1954, settling in southern London just before the rock 'n' roll boom, where the Sarstedt brothers started out performing skiffle music.

He is a younger brother of the 1960s pop star Eden Kane, for whom he briefly played bass, and an elder brother of pop singer Clive Sarstedt.[5]


Sarstedt is best known for his 1969 UK number-one single "Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)?", a portrait of a poor-born girl who becomes a member of the European jet-set. The song topped the chart in 14 countries.[4] It was also awarded the 1970 Ivor Novello Award for Best Song Musically and Lyrically.[6] Other Sarstedt songs include "Beirut", "Take Off Your Clothes", "I Am a Cathedral" and "Frozen Orange Juice" (UK No. 10 in 1969).[7]

In the 1980s and 1990s, Sarstedt frequently toured the southern UK as part of the "Solid Silver '60s" package tours, having returned to England after several years residing in Denmark. In the 1990s and 2000s, he continued to release new albums and tour. In 1997 he released the album England's Lane and in 2002 an album of new material called On Song. He sang harmonies on "Don't Think Twice" and "Last Thing on My Mind" on Canadian singer Peter Thompson's 2007 album, Taking a Dive (Heart First).

New interest was sparked in his music after "Where Do You Go To" was used in the 2007 Wes Anderson films Hotel Chevalier and The Darjeeling Limited. In 2012, a compilation of songs called Highlights — the Demos was released.[4]

Sarstedt's latest album, released in 2013, is entitled Restless Heart. It was produced by Ray Singer and the single and accompanying video clip "Valentine" was released on Singer Records and distributed by Proper/Finetunes.[8] Sarstedt has not toured since 2010, and has now retired.
