Alongside today’s theatrical release of Éric Morin’s new film Nous sommes Gold, Philippe B unveils the movie’s original soundtrack via Bonsound. The mini-album is mainly made up of songs played by GOLD, the fictional band at the heart of the motion picture. Philippe B created the songs in tandem with Morin’s development of the screenplay, ensuring that the lyrics reflect the characters’ mindset and relationships. Actors Emmanuel Schwartz and Monia Chokri contribute to the film’s authenticity by lending their voices to the songs on-screen.
Philippe B moves away from his highly-praised folk music to deliver alt-rock songs tailored for Nous sommes Gold’s narrative. The Rouyn-Noranda singer-songwriter reconnects with the movie’s director, both of whom played in the indie rock band Gwenwed (1998-2005). This is the second film collaboration between Philippe B and Morin, who also teamed up for the 2013 movie Chasse au Godard d’Abbittibbi.
The mini-album Nous sommes Gold (Bande originale du film) is out now on all music services.
