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.
