‘Parachute’ is Mélanie Pain’s third album, and is one that defies gravity.

Mélanie Pain made one of her dreams come true on this record: working with Gael Rakotondrabe, pianist of the highly-respected Antony and the Johnsons (as well as CocoRosie).

‘Parachute’ is entirely piano-based, deliberately no guitar was recorded.

Mélanie has left her pop-folk influences far behind.

The style is now hard to define – hybrid and modern, classical, almost aquatic.

Mélanie is at ease here, experimental and theatrical on some tracks, minimalist and organic on others… always filled with emotion – hers, and ours.

Darker and more intense, Mélanie explores her fears, and these demons produce wonders.

‘Parachute’ is out March 24.
