Singer-songwriter Philippe B makes his long-awaited return with Nouvelle administration, a melancholic folk song that takes us right back to his essence. This is his first new song since La grande nuit vidéo, which was released via Bonsound in 2017.
Carried by subtle yet powerful string arrangements and enchanting vocal harmonies, this new single evokes with modesty and sensitivity the events that have transformed the artist’s life over the past six years, notably becoming a father and leaving Montreal. Nouvelle administration reveals that, despite those transformations, Philippe B remains deeply rooted in his habits - both personal and musical -, just like the typical neighborhood restaurant that changes owners without necessarily changing its menu or décor. Through this song, he explores the universal and utopian quest for the so-called fresh start which, more often than not, ends up taking us down the same paths we were trying to escape.
