‘The Music Will Break Thru Anyway’ released today!

English:

For 2 months now I have been asking myself ‘How can I be in peace in the studio when bombs are dropping off a couple of borders from here? What role am I playing in this? What can I do to help stopping this aberration? And then the answer came:

‘The music will break thru anyway. We defend our freedom, to live, to love, to sound. On our land we’re fighting Russia which brings horrible silence with its bombs. Fill the silence with your music, fill it today. To tell our story, tell the truth about war on your social networks on tv. Support us in any way you can, anything but not silence. And then peace will come’

These are Volodymyr Zelensky’s incredibly touching words spoken at the Grammy Awards 19 days ago. They went straight to my heart. This track is dedicated to him.

‘The Music Will Break Thru Anyway’ is out today on Fantastic Recordings, available on Bandcamp and all digital platforms.

French:

Depuis deux mois je me pose des questions: ‘Comment puis-je être en paix dans mon studio quand je sais que des bombes tombent à deux frontieres d’ici? Est ce que j’ai un rôle à jouer dans cette histoire? Comment puis-je arrêter cette abbération?’ Puis la réponse est arrivée:

‘La musique percera de toute façon. Nous défendons notre liberté de vivre, d’aimer, d’emettre du son. Sur nos terres nous combattons la Russie qui apporte un silence horrible avec ses bombes. Remplissez le silence avec votre musique, remplissez-le aujourd’hui. Pour raconter notre histoire, pour dire la vérité à propos de la guerre sur vos réseaux sociaux et à la télé. Donnez-nous votre support de quelque façon que ce soit, de n’importe quelle façon, mais pas le silence. Et la paix viendra.’

Ce sont les paroles du Président Volodymyr Zelensky, prononcées il y a 19 jours lors des Grammy Awards. Elles me sont allées droit au coeur. Ce morceau de musique lui est dédié.

‘The Music Will Break Thru Anyway’ sort aujourd’hui chez Fantastic Recordings, disponible sur Bandcamp et sur les plateformes numériques.

Day -1

Day -1 !! Tomorrow my new track drops everywhere and I’m impatient and very happy to be sharing it with you. Sharing is everything 🙂 By posting here I’m not asking you to buy it, I’m not trying to manipulate you to do anything, I’m only sharing my excitement for a new understanding I have of life, a new us, to share with you my dream of a much kinder world and to celebrate this superfun ride that life is!

Now if you insist, you can always pre-save the track in Spotify here that way you can sit back, relax and the music will come to you as if by (digitalonlinealgorhyhmicbots) magic 🙂

Thank you :) :) :)

My darling dearests, here’s a little Midi a Minuit thought for you (it’s 3 am and coming at you live from the studio): I’ve been mixing all day so to stretch my legs so to speak I’ve just taken a stroll online and various links took me to the Laura B page on discogs where I saw 462 Laura B records for sale. That’s quite a lot so I had a look and guess what? I see compilations I’m featured on, records I’ve engineered or produced, some collaborations and co-writes and some records I mastered but hey 🙂 not one single CD released on Fantastic Recordings. Then I checked Ebay, there’s one Midi a Minuit EP with a knackered cover obviously listed as a collector, then none on Amazon.com nor any on Amazon.co.uk. This makes me think that perhaps you’re all holding onto your copies? And if this is the case, all I can say is thank you and I’m touched by your loyalty, you’re the true stars in my sky 🙂 🙂 🙂
