Your album Escapades will be released on June 25. How do you feel about this first release?
I can’t wait for it to come out. I finished it a while ago, so I have to admit that I’m a little bit nervous. It’s the home stretch, and I still have a few things to do with it, but I also want to start making new music. But I’m happy; it’s a good synchronicity with life starting again too.
Could you tell me more about this project?
It’s an escapade on several levels: it’s an escapade outside of a duo, outside of what’s going on musically in our time, and it’s also a kind of experimentation just to get out of the classic pop format and to offer people music that is less restrictive in terms of imagination and message. I have the impression that today there is a lot of music where the message is important. For me, the message is open and a bit less didactic: there is no language barrier; it’s more of an emotional message.
