Garou: Le Jour Se Lève
A new release, Le Jour Se Lève, by Garou, the Quebec singer known to his parents as Pierre Garand.
Garou became known initially for his work with the Notre-Dame de Paris musical, getting a number one single in '98, but he went on to a massively successful solo career, his debut album Seul, which came out in 2000, selling over 1.5 million copies in France.
The title track was a number one hit and the album one of the biggest selling French language albums ever.
The single Sous le vent, a duet with Celine Dion gave him another number one in France, as did the song La Rivière de notre enfance, a duet with Michel Sardou.
His most recent release until this year was the album Version Intégrale, released in November 2010.
He plays in Paris on November 18 and his new album is released on September 24.
