On the eve of his participation in the big National Day show on the Plains of Abraham, in Quebec, Richard Séguin unveiled the song "Inhabited" on Wednesday, the first extract from his album "Les liens les lieux" which will be launched at Spectra Music on September 9th.
The 70-year-old singer, who has been around for more than 50 years, will also be touring this fall, as he has throughout his career.
About "Inhabited", Richard Séguin says that the song is a collective effort, like the fight that society must lead for ecology, the protection of territories and love in general, all through citizen movements. .
“I had music composed on a basis of three chords which evoked a sort of spiral, it had been sleeping there for four years. I superimposed voices and from these vocal layers a balance was born. The word "inhabited" appeared as a word of refuge and the intimate images that one carries within oneself emerged, the looks, the places, the impressions, the hopes and all the familiar words, "said the songwriter. -interpreter, in a press release.
"Hugo Perreault consolidated the ensemble on bass and guitars, François Lafontaine added his piano, Simon Godin his unleashed guitar, Alain Bergé on rhythmic creation, Karine Pion did the backing vocals with me, I did all the vocals at my home studio, in short, group work,” he added.
It is at the Center d’art La Petite Eglise in Saint-Eustache, in the Laurentians, that the trip of Richard Séguin and his musicians will begin on September 15-16-17. These three performances are sold out, as are most of his fall appointments. The artist must hit the road until June 10, 2023, when he will conclude his tour at home, in Saint-Venant-de-Paquette, in Estrie.
