Today, Franky Fade unveils Vertige, the inaugural single from his upcoming debut album, due out later this year via Bonsound. The Gaspé-born rapper and singer-songwriter, who recently joined the Montreal-based record label, proposes melodic hip-hop driven by poignant lyrics and immersive arrangements.
Produced by DoomX (Planet Giza), Sambé, Arnaud Castonguay and Franky himself, the rapper exposes his fear of falling in love with lucidity on this haunting, modern hip-hop track. Through synthesizer melodies and energetic percussions, the warm voice of the artist conveys the story of an inner conflict which will resonate with many. The catchy melody lingers in the mind, turning an otherwise very personal feeling into something universal.
An animated video, directed by Yves Paradis, accompanies the song and illustrates this feeling as we watch Franky Fade's animated alter ego fall through several tableaux.
Just days after announcing his signing to Bonsound, Franky Fade premiered his new single Vertige in an exclusive solo performance for PELOUSE, a series developed by Festival Santa Teresa. The video is available on YouTube and Instagram.
