Following a sold-out show at Montreal’s Club Soda last Friday, Geoffroy now delivers a brand new song, Wanderer, which is available on all digital platforms via Bonsound. Produced by Tim ''Heartfelt'' Buron from Cult Nation’s collective New Gospel (Charlotte Cardin, Nate Husser), the single touches on Geoffroy’s need to embrace the unexpected, and expresses a joie de vivre and a thirst for escape. I’ve been travelling a lot recently and it has reminded me how important it is to live fully, to break free from routine and comfort, explains the artist.
More electro-tinged than his other songs, Wanderer is not necessarily a preview of his next album, which is currently in the works for a 2019 winter release. It’s a one-off single that I decided to release for the fans, adds Geoffroy, to keep them waiting for the follow-up to Coastline, his Polaris Music Prize Long-Listed debut album released in March 2017.
Since its release, the album’s first single, Sleeping on My Own, has garnered 6 million streams on Spotify, and Thirsty, his collaboration with Men I Trust, reached the top spot on HypeMachine. Geoffroy was also named Apple Music’s Favourite New Artist, and was the sole Canadian artist to play a showcase at Midem (France) in June. Last fall, he opened for Møme in France and Belgium, and performed for the first time in Los Angeles as part of a Live Nation Ones To Watch concert. He will continue touring Quebec over the next few months.
