“Five Minutes With” Canadian pop musician Cœur de pirate

Unveiling a magnificent new single titled “Tu ne seras jamais là,” featuring Alexandra Stréliski on piano, Cœur de pirate simultaneously announces her upcoming disco-pop album Impossible à aimer, which is slated for release on October 15. 

“Impossible à aimer” is a response to the incessant comments the artist received about how she must be difficult, even impossible, to love. By thumbing her nose at such remarks, she found the inspiration for the album title. The new opus offers a refreshing collection of songs, which feature (but are not limited to) the sounds of disco, and where the timeless theme of tormented love always finds its way into the music. Highlights include the sober “Le monopole de la douleur,” where Cœur de pirate sings in confidence about mutual pain; the debut single “On s’aimera toujours”; and “Une chanson brisée,” where she returns to the flow and melodic patterns of her early work. On Impossible à aimer, Cœur de pirate approaches music with the composure of a liberated thirtysomething.
