The singer announces a new album with multiple faces, expected on October 8, with a cover illustrated by Joann Sfar.
What a long way since his concert at the Transmusicales de Rennes in 2003 with the songs from his first disc arranged by Edith Fambuena ( from the group Les Valentins ) . The first parts of Miossec, M, Bernard Lavilliers, Lhasa followed . . . Today Pauline Croze announces a sixth album marked by health restrictions, where she takes on several roles . Refined in March 2020 and already unveiled, the title Solution co – written with Anne Claverie, whose voice was recorded in a wooden cabinet, will be there . Directed by Claire Sichez, it exposes the theme of a “fragmented society which stubbornly seeks how to finally achieve happiness “:
What drives her, Pauline, is trying to provoke physical sensations with a feeling of lightness, even if it is to highlight the violence of the world .
I needed the risk, to shake up the substance as much as the form, to be tested ” .
To be free, the author – composer – singer and guitarist founded his own label, which allows it to work on the same disc, with several young directors inspired . We will find on the latter beautiful collaborations with Nk . F ( Damso, Orelsan ) , Romain Guerret ( Aline, Alex Rossi ) , Charlie Trimbur ( Eddy de Pretto ) and Pierrick Devin ( Phoenix, Lomepal ) . Attraction and repulsion emerge, not without irony, from the title Kim, composed with his accomplice Romain Guerret for the North Korean dictator, on a clip directed by Anne Horel:
Whether she writes alone in pairs, Pauline Croze sings her whole being . She mixes the pop of her beginnings with very current urban sounds and her swaying rhythms carry chiseled lyrics that transcend emotions with fragility and conviction . It is the designer, novelist, director, screenwriter and above all the creator of the Rabbi’s Cat comic who signs the album cover:
After the Gray Hours is released on October 8 at Argentic / Capitol and Pauline Croze will shoot throughout the season 21 – 22, with a Parisian date at the Stars on November 17, 2021 .
