STROMAE UNVEILS NEW SINGLE “L’ENFER” IN AN EXCEPTIONAL PERFORMANCE
Stromae’s latest single “L’enfer” is a powerful and inspiring exploration of the mental health issues and internal struggles we all face at times. Stromae, as usual, finds the right words, carried by moving, melancholic piano notes, to give listeners a talisman to fight against these dark thoughts and hard times. “L’enfer” is the second single from Stromae's new album Multitude, coming on March 4, 2022.
The song acts as a further testament to Stromae’s ingenious and profound skills not just as a producer, musician but as a lyricist; his signature dark sense of humor help reinforce these very palpable emotions, each carried by strings and percussions set to punctuate the choruses. A deluge of reverb and haunting voices become elegiac, and when the vengeful synth enters the stage, the listener has no choice but to join the fight.
Is ‘L’enfer’ a complaint or a declaration of war? A stripped-down piano-vocal or a summoning hymn? A song to reflect upon, smile along to, clench your fist at, or sing from the top of your lungs? "L'enfer" is all of the above.
