After collaborating with the visual artist Pascal Grandmaison for his Autoportrait (sans lunettes) video, Philippe B invited another artist, Léna Mill-Reuillard, whose practice is based around photography research, to interpret his song Anywhere. The result falls midway between photography and video. Anywhere, which features vocals by Milk & Bone’s Laurence Lafond-Beaulne, is off Philippe B’s fifth album La grande nuit vidéo, released a little over a year ago.
Watch and share the video for Anywhere via YouTube.
The album La grande nuit vidéo is available in stores and on all music services.
Described by Le Devoir as a great musical success, La grande nuit vidéo was one of 40 albums long-listed for the Polaris Music Prize in 2017 and was nominated for two awards at last year’s ADISQ Gala: Folk Album of the Year and Album of the Year (Critic’s Choice). On the LP, Philippe B explores the human connection with fiction through the paradigm of a romantic couple.
Philippe B will perform his brand new show, Philippe B & The Alphabet, in Montreal on Thursday, November 8th at Club Soda, during the Coup de coeur francophone festival. The singer-songwriter will step onto the stage with a rock orchestra for this unique concert, which includes a rhythmic section, a brass section, guitars, keyboards and back vocalists. Philippe B will revisit his catalogue, backed by nine musicians, while keeping his favourite instrument, the guitar, front and center.
