Elisapie shares a new single and a video for Wolves Don’t Live by the Rules

Inuk-Montrealer Elisapie shares Wolves Don’t Live by the Rules, the first single off her upcoming album to be released in September via Bonsound. The singer-songwriter/director will perform at the Monument-National in Montreal on September 27th.

The cover Wolves Don’t Live by the Rules is the first stone that triggered the whole creative process around her new album The Ballad of the Runaway Girl.
To visually accompany Wolves Don’t Live by the Rules, Elisapie produced a collage of archival footage filmed up north during the 60s. The montage explores the winds of change descending upon the Inuit community at that time. Watch and share the video for Wolves Don’t Live by the Rules via YouTube. Elisapie’new song is available on all digital platforms.

The album Spirit Child (1981) by Inuk folk-singer Willie Thrasher was a major influence on Elisapie’s work. It almost became an obsession for her. Willie Thrasher gave me strength. I was finding myself in him. Somehow, his life was torn from him. He was sent to a residential school in the south. He lost his language and his traditional Inuit way of life. Willie Thrasher did not have an easy path, but he is a fighter.

This first single (mixed by Howie Beck) is a return to the essential for Elisapie. The folk sound, full of personality, leaves all the necessary space for her to express her sensitivity. The guitarist-singer Joe Grass, who lends his warm voice to the chorus, admirably accompanies Elisapie on the track. Other contributors include Nicolas Basque (Plants & Animals) on guitar, Robbie Kuster (Patrick Watson) on drums, and Jason Sharp on saxophone.
