LP version. Rone & Friends has the musical color of Rone's friendships, of his crushes for a few additional less expected guest voices, but also inevitably of his own personality. The new collaborative album includes voices by Georgia, Yael Naim, Casper Clausen (Efterklang), Flavien Berger, Jenny Beth, Dominique A, and many others. In the social isolation of 2020, Rone felt the need to come closer to his artist friends and to reshuffle his creations with their voices as the new beating heart. This collection, entitled Rone & Friends, has the musical color of Rone's friendships, of his crushes for a few additional less expected guest voices, but also inevitably of his own personality. The collaborative album is based on an electronic backdrop of previously unreleased titles, alternative versions of Room With A View or his first feature film soundtrack La Nuit Venue. First of all, there's this title from his ''buddy'', the science-fiction author Alain Damasio, which Rone has had on his hard drive for a while: a slightly erotic pastiche to Serge Gainsbourg entitled ''un''. Rone unearthed a deep and pastoral version of ''Human'' where the voice of Efterklang singer Casper Clausen seems to take on the accents of Matt Berninger of The National. The artist reactivated the aborted collaboration projects with his close circle and spontaneously collected a big handful of titles. To these first ''kind-hearted'' reactions, came three female collaborations with the English singer and multi-instrumentalist Georgia, the Iranian Roya Arab (seminal voice of the ''Londinium'' of the group Archive) and a rising figure of the ambient scene, Malibu, with whom Rone had always hoped to work. It is a kind of pressure cooker of spicy and very diverse musical personalities that gives a fresh and offbeat appeal to Rone's music. Dominique A's lyrical skills rubs shoulders with the surrealist and psychedelic poetry of Flavien Berger. The vitamin-packed pop of Georgia is followed by the ethereal contemplations of Yael Naim. Jenny Beth from Savages even turns her post-punk attitude into French desireless-ness. Nods to American rock merge with '90s trip-hop in a mix of genres that is bubbling, fun, but never disconcerting. The visual identity of the project was created by the illustrator and cartoonist Coco and continues, in its own way, the work initiated by Michel Gondry on the imaginary city of Mirapolis. Also features Odezenne, Laura Etchegoyhen, Mood, Camelia Jordana, and Melissa Laveaux. 01. Sot-l'y-laisse (Odezenne) (2:55) 02. Waves Of Devotion (Georgia) (3:30) 03.
