After more than two years of waiting after his latest studio album, Je Veux du Bonheur
, certified diamond disc and followed by a triumphant tour sold out, Christophe Mae
finally comes back with a new album.
Born from the meeting with Paul Ecole, author having collaborated with Oxmo Puccino and Calogero and with whom Christophe Maé co-wrote almost all titles, The Dreamcatcher is an intense and introspective album whose story began with the writing texts.
Christophe Maé tackles personal themes with the simplicity and sincerity that characterize him.
From the quest for happiness (He is where Happiness) to paternity (Marcel), from absolute love (Ballerina) to passing time (40 years tomorrow), the chiseled texts of this album present Christophe Maé as he is today.
We also find his humanism and commitment to Lampedusa, which contrasts with the humor and lightness of La Parisienne or Les Amis.
It is also in the intimacy that came to him the idea of \u200b\u200bthe title of the album, blown by his seven-year-old son: these charms have accompanied Christophe Maé throughout his creative process also inspiring the title of opening of the album Dreamcatcher , written by Boris Bergman.
Musically, Christophe Maé has breathed new life while remaining true to his roots.
All the music he loves is there in a more pop energy.
The strength of electric guitars blends with more urban influences of the early 1990s creating a showcase where Christophe Mae reinvent themselves without betraying themselves and where each song is a story that will echo in each of us.
This album is a whole, a turn, a turn. As soon as we saw a highway appear, something too obvious (melodically, or for words, or even for sound) we turned around to take new paths, even if they were less smooth , less clean.
We did not travel by sedan to design this album. We drove in 4X4 crado, on unknown roads.
