Laurence-Anne unveils Tempête, a third single off her upcoming sophomore effort, Musivision. The singer blurs the lines between hypnotic and progressive vibes on Tempête, venturing into a rich pop landscape where rock, synthwave and blues meld into a psychedelic atmosphere with a languid groove. This new song follows Indigo and Nyx, the first two tracks off the album, which embody the emotional and musical duality of this opus, due out this Friday, April 23rd via Bonsound.
A music video with a mysterious atmosphere accompanies the song. Set in three distinct locations - a pool, a labyrinth of white sheets, and under a threatening sky - the images serve as a reminder of Laurence-Anne's electrifying stage performances.* Tempête is inspired by science fiction films of the 80s*, says director Léa Dumoulin. At the center of the turmoil, Laurence-Anne acts as a resilient entity, exuding sensual energy and warmth.
Composed during a snowstorm in Marsoui, Gaspésie, the singer-songwriter took a long time before fully embracing the song: I wasn't sure it represented me well. I found it too pop, even cheesy in terms of melody and form, explains Laurence-Anne. It's new in my creative process, to assume more "structured" songs. But then, after listening to it over and over again, I started to really like it. Especially the Fleetwood Mac ending.
Beyond its musical form, Tempête (“Storm” in French) is captivating with its sensitive lyrics, and evokes moments of uncertainty, like a romance on the verge of collapse. Why do hurricanes always come to my house? asks Laurence-Anne at the end of this moving song, which echoes the melancholy Indigo.
Musivision, Laurence-Anne’s sophomore album, was recorded at studio B-12 in Valcourt, taking shape alongside her loyal musicians Naomie De Lorimier, David Marchand and Ariel Comtois. Co-produced by Félix Petit (Bellflower, Les Louanges), Musivision also benefits from the contribution of guitarist Julian Perreault (Corridor), star drummer Samuel Joly (Klaus, Marie-Pierre Arthur) and producer Jesse Mac Cormack.
