Song. Étienne Daho, always classy
With its unique ability to reach both the general public and the most discerning listeners, Etienne Daho is a special case. Six years after The Blitz and its twilight hedonism, the 66-year-old Rennais is to publish Tirer la nuit vers les étoiles, his 12e studio album from next month.
That Miosec has already been announced, and its name – “Simplifier” – says a lot: Brestli has cooled down his music to the extreme. A desire for healthy asceticism to better catalyze emotions. Recorded in three, which would be his 12the album and will be released on February 17.

Rap and R’n’B. Rihanna l’Arlesienne
It was almost a joke: American-Caribbean singer from 2017 Rihanna 9 promises to be released soone studio album. Without ever posting anything new. Will it be right this time? To say he was expected in line is an understatement.

Pop. Station in Gorillaz
The brilliant Damon Albarn is insatiable: the English musician, who floated from one group to another (from Blur to The Good, the Bad & the Queen), reactivated the project. Gorillaz he directs with visual artist Jamie Hewlett. And it developed a great immersive experience. Cracked Island will be released on February 24 via Parlophone.
We also look forward to updates from the prolific Californian Lana Del Rey (March 10), new David Guetta and even a possible long format for an electro pop band with The Penelopes Isabelle Adjani, will sign his first album there since his collaboration with Serge Gainsbourg forty years ago!
