New Album Bleue
Keren Ann released, on March 15th, her 8th solo album, Bleue. This last album is a subtle but very specific colour and tonality, a strong intention. Melancholy, a constant partner for Karen Ann and in folk music, dominates Bleue.
She talks about what’s ephemeral. The way love and attachment, as immense as they seem, dissolve and drown. Bittersweetness is the only constant (“Swim in the wall, there where everything is said, there where nothing lasts” in Nager dans le nuit [Swim in the Night]). Her lucidity is implacable (” This love is killing me“, in every tone on Sous l’eau [Underwater]). Her grief is palpable (“There’s no grace, no heart, no horizon“she says in Ton île-prison [Your Prison-Island]). Her non-return is documented (“But this time is the last time“she says in La mauvaise fortune [Bad Luck]).
Keren Ann will be performing in New York, don’t miss it !
