Le fantastique des astres, Yann Perreau‘s fifth album, is available now online (Bandcamp / iTunes) and in stores! Yann surprised many fans with this new single, J'aime les oiseaux, which has taken over Quebec’s radio waves.

An artist continuously growing in boldness and maturity, Yann Perreau is back in fine form with this fresh new album full of heartfelt and well-crafted lyrics set to lively, groovy music. After the release of his previous album À genoux dans le désir, composed of unpublished works by Claude Péloquin, the singer-songwriter returned to his own writing. Based on the events of the past few years (deaths, births, accidents, voyages...) the creation of these songs became more than necessary.

Le fantastique des astres was created in the heat of the moment as both a joyful celebration of life as well as a middle finger to modern world cynicism. The passion is palpable in the lyrics and music for songs like Baby boom, J’aime les oiseaux and Faut pas se fier au apparences. With his head high in the sky, both feet on the ground, the showman has created a perfect playground for himself and his listeners.

Though this fifth album offers many festive, dance songs, the wonderful tracks À l’amour et à la mer and T’embellis ma vie portray a more sensitive Yann Perreau. This album was produced by Tante Blanche, an enigmatic personality and sound designer who loves mixing lots of old and new material, and includes collaborations with Laurence Nerbonne, Pierre Kwenders and Yves Desrosiers.

Biography

Yann Perreau began his professional career at 18 with the band Doc et les Chirurgiens (1994-1998). After taking puppeteering classes (in 1998-1999) and acting classes (2000-2001), he released his solo debut album in 2002, Western Romance (Rapsat-Lelièvre prize at the Francofolies de Spa, Félix-Leclerc prize at the FrancoFolies de Montréal, Mirror prize at the Festival d’été de Québec). In 2005, he released the album Nucléaire (Diffuseurs Européens prize at the Bourse RIDEAU) and the DVD / live album Perreau et la Lune, for which he won the Show Direction of the Year award at the 2007 ADISQ.

His album Un serpent sous les fleurs, released in 2009, is still to this day his biggest popular and critical success (Félix for Songwriter of the Year in 2009, Félix for Show of the Year - Songwriter in 2010, Mirror prize for French Expression at the 2010 Festival d’été de Québec). He also took part in the Douze Hommes Rapaillés collective, in homage to the late poet Gaston Miron, with whom he recorded two albums and performed many concerts.

After the 2012 release of his previous album À genoux dans le désir, composed of unpublished works by Claude Péloquin, the singer-songwriter returned to his own writing. Released on April 15th, 2016, his fifth album, Le fantastique des astres, was created in the heat of the moment as both a joyful celebration of life as well as a middle finger to modern world cynicism.

A singer-songwriter and notorious showman, Yann Perreau is also a stage director (DJ Champion, Catherine Major, Queen Ka, etc.), actor (Opium 37 at Quat’Sous), poet (Perreau et la Plume published by VLB Éditeur) and owner of the Studio Chenapan in Montreal.
