WATCH “The Making of Roses

Vancouver, BC – August 7, 2015 – Coeur de pirate’s third album, Roses, will soon be released on August 28th on Dare to Care Records. Partnering with three brilliant producers; Bjorn Yttling, [Franz Ferdinand, The Hives, Peter Bjorn and John], the electric and eclectic Rob Ellis [PJ Harvey, Anna Calvi] and Ash Workman [Metronomy], the album was recorded in Sweden, Portishead’s studios in Bristol, and in London’s iconic Church Studios where Adele’s Skyfall fame took its roots.

Most of Roses’s heady songs are in English, the universal language of pop. Whether sober and crystalline or full of lofty arabesques, Béatrice Martin’s meticulously crafted melodies are as resplendent as ever and will enrapture longtime fans once again. Nevertheless, the singer from Quebec explores coming-of-age themes that are at times painful. The lyrics are the reflection of a young woman bravely facing her fears and insecurities, confronting her heartbreaks and epiphanies, and opening up on the other side of celebrity, on motherhood, which deeply changed her life, and on the doubts it cast in her. Thanks to the use of English, millions of people from around the world will be able to relate to these powerful and cathartic yet intimate and unveiling songs.

The final result is an album that is wonderfully aptly named. Just like the black flowers scattered on its beautiful cover, Roses’ melodies blossom as gorgeous buds do, but they are also riddled with prickly spikes and raging thorns. The album is an intoxicating chiaroscuro, a stylistic and emotional roller coaster. It offers a perfectly consistent collection of Coeur de pirate classics immersed in changing, creative arrangements. Roses is at once catchy and daring, pop and experimental, dark and light, exhilarating and moving, romantic and epic. Béatrice Martin offers her natural talent with impressive grace and character reminiscent of Lana Del Rey and Lykke Li, Nick Cave and Feist. The English and the French songs combine to form Coeur de pirate’s most accomplished album to date. More importantly, Roses marks the beginning of a stellar future, one that may make the artist’s shining past look like an original spark.
