JILL BARBER - Neues Album "Entre Nous" am 19.06.2020 (Outside Music / Bertus)

Nach ihrem Ausflug in den modernen Pop kehrt sie auf dem vorliegenden Album wieder zu dem Sound zurück, mit dem sie ihre größten Erfolge feiern durfte. 60’s beeinflusster Chanson - Pop, konsequenterweise auf französisch gesungen. Wunderbar zeitlos, herrlich instrumentiert und durchweg gelungen.

Les étés de Montréal

Jill Barber is a three-time Juno Award nominated singer-songwriter with an unforgettable voice once heard, never forgotten. Her critically acclaimed repertoire spans a transformative spectrum from folk, to vocal jazz, to pop, and includes songs in both French and English.

Despite her anglophone roots and having just been awarded a gold album for her breakthrough jazz album Chances, Jill's best-selling work remains her debut francophone album, Chansons, which has surpassed 25 000 albums sold worldwide and amassed in excess of 30 million streams since release.

As a songwriter, Jill Barber is beloved in Canada and abroad for her talent and impressive body of work in English, in French she is irresistible, and her star is only just beginning to rise.

On Entre Nous… Inspired by French pop music of the 1960's, Entre nous invites the listener on an musical rendezvous through champagne-soaked love songs like the title-track, cheeky yeye-inspired songs like Chat domestique, the psychedelic Commes les fleurs reminiscent of the Velvet Underground, the hooky pop song Le monde est beau, a haunting interpretation of Leonard Cohen's Suzanne, and the steamy duet with Quebec chanteur Yann Per­ reau, Les etes de Montreal.

"I've long had a love affair with the French language. Like love itself, it is complicated, nuanced, and still somewhat of an enigma to me. The delicate interplay between the masculine and feminine, the rules and exceptions, the rolling of the tongue, I find it all irresistible. The French music of the 1960's in particular captures my imagination for the chic, fun and sexy way it captures something so uniquely French."
