Friday, September 3, 2021 Montreal folk-pop singer-songwriter Geneviève Racette shares Les adieux, the second single off her bilingual album Satellite. Available to stream now.
Les adieux is a song that evokes the last glimmer of a relationship that is drawing to a close. Throughout the track you can feel the possibility of a last chance, forgiveness, even peace through Geneviève’s silky, tender vocals. As the song progresses, the arrangement brings the listener through the wave of emotions of wanting to start from scratch in order to start over again. Co-produced by Geneviève Racette and François-Pierre Lue and engineered by François-Pierre Lue and Shae Brossard, Les adieux was written by Geneviève and Éric Charland and features Eleonore Pitre on guitar.
Satellite, due out in 2022, is Geneviève’s third full-length release. A 9-song collection delivering honest stories of self-discovery and reflection through the cycle of love. The album, filled with intimate vocals, lush instruments and expressive harmonies, evokes moments of love, heartbreak, healing, forgiveness and ultimately falling in love again.
With over 2 million streams on Spotify, Geneviève Racette has captivated listeners with her gentle, yet compelling, emotional resonance, and garnered impressive industry support for her folk-pop tracks ever since her first EP in 2014. Through her vulnerable lyricism and ethereal vocals, Geneviève has emerged as a rising star in both French and English-speaking Canadian music scenes.
Her latest album, No Water, No Flowers, brought forth an immense amount of growth for Geneviève, turning the corner from Quebec recognition to national praise, including a Canadian Folk Music award, performing on stage with City and Colour at Osheaga, rave reviews from media, music publications and blogs, and tracking on multiple radio stations right across Canada. In the last two years Racette has performed as the headliner in over one hundred concert venues across the country, including Quebec, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and the Maritimes.
As a woman in music, it is essential to Geneviève that she surrounds herself with like-minded females in the industry. She is proud that over half her team involved in the creation of Satellite are female musicians and members of the industry. Through fine-tuning her artistic vision and developing a profound network of professionals, Geneviève is ready to work on this record with a newfound creative state of mind, hoping to reach out of the Quebec market exporting her music across North America and beyond.
