Philippe B, recently nominated for Francophone Songwriter of the Year at the Canadian Folk Music Awards, now shares a video for his song Je t’aime, je t’aime. Directed by Dan & PAG from DTO Films, the video takes us into the soft and languid vibe of the song. Je t’aime, je t’aime is from his fifth album, La grande nuit vidéo, described by Le Devoir newspaper as a great musical success.
Released on May 12th via Bonsound, La grande nuit vidéo was one of 40 albums long-listed for the Polaris Music Prize and is up for two awards at this year’s ADISQ Gala: Folk Album of the Year and Album of the Year (Critic’s Choice). On this new LP, Philippe B explores the human connection with fiction through the paradigm of a couple, in which the female character is personified by the voice of Laurence Lafond-Beaulne (Milk & Bone). La grande nuit vidéo and its cinematic chord arrangements impressed critics and fans right out of the gate.
