Elisapie puts her own spin on a Rolling Stones ballad just weeks before the release of her album Inuktitut

Elisapie returns today with Qimmijuat (Wild Horses), an adaptation of the classic Rolling Stones ballad that she translated into her mother tongue. Taken from the album Inuktitut, to be released by Bonsound on September 15th, 2023, this new single follows Uummati Attanarsimat (Heart of Glass), Taimangalimaaq (Time After Time) and Isumagijunnaitaungituq (The Unforgiven), which caught the attention of Rolling Stone magazine and Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich.

Similar to the original in its tenderness and intensity, Qimmijuat (Wild Horses) showcases Elisapie's raw, vulnerable voice, backed by her loyal collaborator Joe Grass' powerful, moving arrangements. Robbie Kuster's striking drums and Leif Vollebekk's piano melody help set this version apart. The song is a tribute to a childhood friend of Elisapie who had a difficult home life due to his parent's separation and a strained relationship with his father. Wild Horses became a source of comfort for him and his obsession with it was palpable, as if he was riding away from all his problems on the back of this song, explains Elisapie.

Elisapie's new song is accompanied by a music video directed by Philippe Léonard, using footage shot by Jean-Philippe Sansfaçon in Inukjuak and Salluit, Nunavik. Infused with great delicacy, the video showcases the people who live in these villages through various intimate tableaux and scenes of community life.

Elisapie will be taking her new album to the stage on a 50-date tour. In addition to her regular tour, there will be five performances of Uvattini, a special live show presented exclusively at Usine C in Montréal and the Grand Théâtre de Québec. This summer, Elisapie will also travel to Kuujjuaq to premiere her new show, before heading out to Rouyn-Noranda to perform at FME. More concerts are scheduled in France in November 2023 and April 2024. See the list below for more details.
