Vancouver based singer-songwriter, Loig Morin will release the seventh album of his career on April 9th, 2021.
Spring is the season of new beginnings and Printemps is the first in a four-album series that will embrace each of the year's seasons. Each album will possess its own colours, themes, and sound signatures, sweeping listeners up in universes that embody inspiration from different cultures in music that unites more classic styles with contemporary electronic touches in a seemingly effortless way.
The first single, “Romance à l'italienne,” is reminiscent of popular French duets. Canadian Chanteuse and fellow Vancouver resident. Jill Barber joins Loig on this trip through the torments of love and its pretenses. Pop inspired with hints of electronica; this atmospheric song is seductive, transcending all languages.
Following “Romance a l’italienne” the next single, “La bête,” will be released April 9. A song about addiction and beating the beast that lies beneath the surface. Montreal-born, Maude G.I., shares vocals on “La bete” and throughout the remaining six tracks; her delicate timbre evokes ethereal imagery against the darkness and depth of Loig’s modulation.
Printemps was recorded, produced, and mixed at Le Loig’s Music Lab, the home studio Loig conceived and built after relocating from his home in Brittany, France to Vancouver in 2010. Moving his entire family and arriving with next to nothing, and not speaking a word of English, Loig realized his dream through drive, perseverance, and becoming a familiar figure in the music community. Since arriving in Canada, Loig recorded three albums: Lonsdale (2012), La rivière (2018) and Citadelle (2019) at his home studio. Citadelle garnering two Gala Trille Or 2021 nominations for Best Direction and Arrangements as well as Best Sound Recording and Mixing.
