French multi-talented chanteuse and multi-instrumentalist Marie Klock has announced the release of a new full-length album, four years on from the release of her self-titled debut album. Entitled Damien est vivant, the upcoming record is named after Klock’s close friend and collaborator Damien Schultz, and was written as an earnest tribute in the aftermath of his recent passing.
Through the album’s ten songs, Klock demonstrates her stylistic versatility and talent for composing intimate and emotive songs leavened with idiosyncratic pop melodies and devastatingly funny lyrics. As the press release desribes, Damien est vivant is a “celebration of the unique bond they shared, in past and present.”
We’ll have to wait until March 29th for the album to be out through Pingipung but we can already hear ‘Se goinfrer de rage’, which serves as a fascinating and intriguing first single. The track comes with an accompanying video directed by Marie Barat and you can watch it below.
