4th album out in 2022
You could definitely say that the creation of this 4th Sylvaine album has taken an unconventional path in many ways. After making ‘Atoms Aligned, Coming Undone’, I knew that creating the next record was going to take a lot out of me. Little did I know just how much, with 2020 bringing forth some of the most challenging times I have experienced so far in my life. It took me a while to gather everything and channel it into songs that would express all of these emotions I had been carrying around with me.
One thing was completely certain from the beginning of the process; Benoît Roux at Drudenhaus was going to be the person I brought the record to life with. It’s so important to work with people who just get what you are trying to communicate with your art, even without having to say a single word. That for me is Benoît. Not to mention the human side, which is fantastic, something that becomes extremely important when spending just over 2 months together straight!
The recording process got heavily prolonged compared to what we initially had planned, due to everything around; travel restrictions, everyone contracting Covid 19 during the session, personal circumstances etc. If it wasn’t one obstacle making things complicated, there was another one just around the corner, waiting for us, haha…. But that didn’t faze me to be honest. I was just so grateful to finally be back in the studio, doing what I love the most, and the musical side of things were going very smooth. It was an incredibly intense time, even more so being completely on my own for most of it. My drummer, Dorian Mansiaux, was with me recording his parts for the first week of the session though, bringing a new dimension to the record with his drumming talents ❤️ 2 guests also joined us on the album, which I’ll reveal later. Can’t tell you how excited I am to share this one with everyone early next year – I put every piece of my soul into it
