We've written about Geneviève before. The last track we featured had strong elements of country and was sung in English, whereas "Les adieux" finds her singing in French with more of a focus on folk and pop as the second single from her bilingual album "Satellite." A sentimental artistic persona comes to the surface as Geneviève explores the final moments of a relationship and the inner struggle between a fear of the unknown and a hesitant obligation to the process of starting over.
Co-produced by Geneviève Racette and François-Pierre Lue and engineered by François-Pierre Lue and Shae Brossard, "Les adieux" was written by Geneviève and Éric Charland and features Eleonore Pitre on guitar. Her silky vocal delivery resonates with warmth and compassion as we flirt with the concept of forgiveness, but as the song title suggests (translated simply as 'goodbyes'), we are dedicated to the hard work of letting go. As a veteran of her local music scene, Racette embodies the cultural vibrancy of Quebec, blending a reverence for the art of folk storytelling with raw passion and a natural talent for beautiful language and poetic timing. Filled with lush instruments and expressive harmonies, "Les adieux" evokes feelings of love, heartbreak, and healing, led by an acoustic piano, a gentle rhythm, and her own unforgettable vocal performance.
