Following his fifth studio album and biggest success to date, 2016’s Le fantastique des astres, Yann Perreau returns today with Goûter le temps. The new song arrives with an animation video created by François Fortin, who previously directed the video for the singer-songwriter’s hit J’aime les oiseaux. Yann also announces a first string of tour dates, including one in Montreal at Théâtre Corona on November 27th. All dates can be found at yannperreau.com and below.
Watch and share the video for Goûter le temps via YouTube.
The single is out now on all music services.
Produced and mixed by Gus van Go, Goûter le temps is the first single off Yann Perreau’s upcoming album (to be released later this year). The song is a call to fully live every moment. We are facing enormous challenges to change, both individually and collectively, explains Yann (piano, percussion), who wanted to write a rallying cry, something that is rarely heard these days. The fiery tempo, the energetic arrangements, and the bright vocals are absolutely infectious. Yann is accompanied on the track by Maxime Bellavance (drums), François Plante (bass), Werner F (guitar), and Virginie Cummings and Lulu Hughes on vocals.
Yann Perreau’s most recent album, Le fantastique des astres (2016), has garnered over five million streams across all DSPs, not to mention the 2.9 million YouTube views for his T’embellis ma vie video and nearly 1 million views for J’aime les oiseaux. Both a joyful celebration of life as well as a middle finger to modern world cynicism, Le fantastique des astres produced four Top 10 radio hits in Quebec, including a #1 for Faut pas se fier aux apparences. These accomplishments are proof that Yann’s songs - whether it's a romantic ballad or a groovy anthem - continue to captivate fans after more than 25 years in the music scene.
Yann ended 2016 with six nominations at ADISQ’s galas, including three for his work as director, writer and performer for the show Piaf a 100 ans. Vive la Môme! honouring Edith Piaf’s legacy. While touring Le fantastique des astres, Yann also performed shows celebrating the 10-year anniversary of his concert Perreau et la lune, took part in the Desjardins, on l’aime-tu! concerts, and created a special Jacques Higelin tribute show presented on the Francos de Montréal’s big outdoor stage. In 2018, the multi-talented artist acted as mentor on the popular TV show La Voix 6 (Quebec’s version of The Voice), hosted the Premier Gala de l’ADISQ with Marie-Mai and released the summery EP Voyager léger. During his free time, Yann is involved in causes that are dear to his heart, such as the Défi kayak Desgagnés, a fundraising activity for the Young Musicians of the World organization.
