Named "Songwriter of the Year" at the 2014 ADISQ Gala for Ornithologie, la nuit, Philippe B returns with a fifth album, La grande nuit vidéo, to be released on May 12, 2017 via Bonsound.
With his critically-acclaimed album Variations fantômes (2011), he explored and sampled the work of classical composers, then used multiple wind instruments to create a late-night soundtrack on the Polaris Long-Listed Ornithologie, la nuit (2014). For this new LP, Philippe B was inspired to create cinematic chord arrangements, reaffirming that he is "one of the great Quebecois singer-songwriters" (Olivier Robillard-Laveaux).
Hear and share the opening track Explosion via YouTube. Explosion is out now on all music services.
La grande nuit vidéo will be presented for the first time in Montreal during a concert on May 17 at Phi Centre. Tickets are on sale now.
