Daniel ROA releases a new “Des mots d’amour”

Posted by dmusique on 03.06.2013 in Daniel ROA

Daniel ROA released today a new a cappella version of his hit song Des mots d’amour. The single is a 100% vocal adaptation of a song from his debut album, Le nombril du monde, which was initially released in 2008 and had garnered a Western Canadian Music Award for Francophone Album of the Year, as has his most recent work, Hyperbole (2011).

“The song had been very popular when I was promoting Nombril [du monde], and so my band and I decided to do a barber shop quartet version as an encore while on tour for Hyperbole”, says Daniel ROA. “People loved it, so I decided to record it. There are no instruments on this track – all the sounds came out of my mouth!” The single is available for download on iTunes and Bandcamp. And, during the entire month of June, Daniel is letting everyone « name their price » on Bandcamp!

An artist to make you dance, an artist to make you think… Daniel ROA moves us to take a fresh look at the world with all its wretchedness and beauty, and it is in this search for lightness that Daniel ROA invites us to join him. With his most recent album, Hyperbole, Daniel ROA promises to take us away with his groove, his energy, his ubiquitous joy, and, as always, a wink and a gun.

Daniel ROA released today a new single with video, for the song Popsicle (English Version). This single is the English version of a song from his sophomore album, Hyperbole, which was released last November and recently garnered a Western Canadian Music Award for Francophone Album of the Year, in addition to two nominations in other categories.

“The song Popsicle was originally written in English, but was translated into French in order to include it my album Hyperbole in 2011”, says Daniel ROA. “This gives me a chance to offer a little something to my English-speaking fans, all the while allowing me to present the song in its original form!” The single is available as of today on iTunes as well as Bandcamp, and the video can be viewed from the artist’s official YouTube page.
