With her eagerly-awaited new album arriving in the coming months, Martha Wainwright has now dropped the next cut to be lifted from her forthcoming full-length.
The new single 'Falaise de Malaise' follows on from the previously shared title-track in previewing her new LP 'Love Will Be Reborn', which arrives on the 20th August.
Speaking about the new offering, she said, “‘Falaise de Malaise’ is a first for me! Not only is it in "Franglais" (a mix of English and French) but I’m actually playing the piano - which I don’t actually know how to do! I've been sitting at the piano for years trying to find a song for the simple piano part that my fingers could play. While doing this I thought, well might as well try writing in French too! I was able to tap into another version of myself - one that was dying to come out. I’ve always sung in French (Piaf record and various covers..) but this is the first time I’ve allowed myself to compose in it. I’ve always watched others move to the music at the 88 keys but this time I sat down to play them myself. What came out was “Falaise de Malaise" - a dreamlike romp through a mythological landscape.”
