A new album release by singer songwriter Saez, one of France's most distinctive voices.
There's little doubt in my mind that Damien Saez is quite simply one of France's best singer songwriters around at the moment, whether tacking personal or political matters, or whether working in a rock context or with an acoustic backing.
His last release was the Messina triple album collection that came out last year.
Meanwhile, the artwork for Miami has caused a row with the RATP insisting on posters being removed from the Paris Metro system
It's not the first time that artwork for his work has got him into trouble with the RATP, with the posters advertising his 2010 J'accuse album (a naked woman in a shopping trolley) earning a ban. And a considerable amount of debate as to the rights and wrongs of employing the image.
Much the same again this time, it seems.
The title track of the new album is available to download free from Saez's website http://www.saez.mu/
Saez is on tour across France from tomorrow, March 19, with dates at the Zénith in Paris on April 18 and 19.
