Klô Pelgag is thrilled to announce her brand-new album, ‘Abracadabra’, out on 11 October via Secret City Records. The follow-up to Notre-Dame-des-Sept-Douleurs – critically acclaimed and the winner of 13 Félix awards at the ADISQ Awards – ‘Abracadabra’ is the soliloquy of a simple formula that could soften the world. Klô Pelgag has fun whilst interrogating her own certainties and anxieties, in a powerful manifesto in search of meaning. An album that reaffirms her phenomenal abilities as a composer, arranger, producer and instrumentalist, and makes her one of the outstanding creative forces of her generation. The album is now available for pre-order in CD, vinyl and digital formats. Stay tuned for the first single, which will be released in a few days’ time on all streaming platforms.

Klô Pelgag also announces the first four dates of the Abracadabra spring tour, which will start in Paris at the Café de la danse on March 17, Brussels at the Musée on March 18, Quebec City at the Impérial Bell on April 26 and in Montreal at the MTelus on May 1.

Klô Pelgag discusses the theme of the new album in this short trailer. Watch it HERE.

Abracadabra is a quest for the absolute, a desire to still believe in something. For all the knots we must untie in order to appear as we really are, without fear or embarrassment ,” shares the singer-songwriter.

“It’s a formula we’d like to solve everything. A word you repeat to yourself as you stare out of the window. If you keep repeating it, will it end up opening a door inside you? Abracadabra, a ridiculous yet beautiful word that would save us the effort it takes to help our neighbour or ourselves. Abracadabra, a word that calls on me to deconstruct it and to which I would like to offer another meaning. Abracadabra is like the magic pill my doctor prescribes to help me sleep, like the telephone that stops me thinking when my mind goes haywire, like the alcohol that consoles me and gives me back the joy that all too often leaves me.

And in this quest for the absolute and for meaning, in this constant hunt for fun, there’s the desire to create something that I don’t know, but which nevertheless resembles me. Music that pierces me as ferociously as my emotions, a feeling of being at the end of a cliff and of falling forever that creates the urgency to write. And in every way, and probably forever, I will try to catch this intangible and unspeakable thing, something to be felt momentarily and which sometimes gives me the absurd desire to say: that’s it, abracadabra “. Klô Pelgag

Each new Klô Pelgag album reiterates the unique place she occupies in the Francophone cultural landscape. “Abracadabra is no exception. From the very first moments of the music, it’s clear that the contrasts that have always been part of the work have been refined. That the powerful, evocative poetic images have become clearer. Between fragility and complexity, the melodic flights fragment to reappear transfigured. The pieces showcase the full elegance of Klô Pelgag’s voice, and bear witness to a genuine exploratory quest through the various ways in which she uses it. The magic lies in her ability to surprise and in her apparent refusal to stagnate creatively.

This time, working alone as a producer, Klô Pelgag has surrounded herself with her stronghold of recent years: Étienne Dupré on bass, François Zaïdan on guitar, Pete Pételle on drums, Virginie Reid on keyboards and Pierre Girard on sound mixing.
