Gaëtan Roussel: Éolienne
Very pleased to see the release of a new video by former Louise Attaque singer Gaëtan Roussel for the
While I loved Louise Attaque, his solo career has certainly seen Roussel develop into a very interesting performer and songwriter.
Roussel released his first solo album Ginger in 2010, which featured among others the singles Help myself (Nous ne faisons que passer) and Dis-moi encore que tu m’aimes.
Louise Attaque were a hugely popular act at the end of the 90s, their self-titled debut album from 1997 selling over 2.8 million copies. They released a further two albums in their career, the band briefly seperating in 2001 after their second album Comme on a dit, regrouping for a third album that came out in 2005, À plus tard crocodile.
The band called a pause in their career in 2007 so members could focus on their solo activity, but greatest hits compilation in 2011 kept the band's profile high.
Prior to his solo career, Roussel worked with Alain Bashung on his Bleu Pétrole collection, which was released in 2008.
Roussel reprised Bashung's Play blessures album at the weekend's Francofolies festival at la Rochelle, the album that saw Bashung working with Serge Gainsbourg.
The new track comes from his forthcoming album, which is due out on September 30 in France.
