Mélanie Pain announces third studio album ‘Parachute’

‘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.
