Coeur de pirate returns with a new single. Entitled “T’es belle”, the song is described as “a feminist anthem faithful to the times and downright exhilarating”. The release is accompanied by a video directed by Béatrice Martin, Coeur de pirate herself.
“T’es belle” is unequivocal: its message is clear, powerful and direct. In full accord with the current paradigm shift and widespread public outrage, the song protests against a stifling patriarchy that dictates what women should do and how. Its subversive lyrics clash with its sunny pop groove and country side.
The song was co-produced by Béatrice Martin and features Dimitri Lebel-Alexandre on banjo, dobro and guitar. As for the video, Martin’s direction is a skillful and elegant effort, serving as a “celebration of women in all their wonderful diversity” and breaking with the rigid and reductive stereotypes of the past.
