Danish-French singer and songwriter Emile is also known for fronting Copenhagen acid rock band The Sonic Dawn. On his new solo effort »Spirit«, Emile unfolds a new and exciting side of his songwriting: each song ebbs and flows effortlessly with a great sense of purpose always centered around his voice and masterful acoustic guitar playing. On »Spirit«, he is backed by a small ensemble of selected musicians and blackbirds singing the sundown. The lyrics reflect an unpretentious cosmic consciousness simply marveling at existence as it is. “»Spirit« is about connecting with our surroundings, with nature and the universe. There is beauty in transformation too,” he reminds us. This is a different album from a different singer-songwriter, both surrealistic and easy to understand, accomplished and untamed light and heavy – like the passing of time.

About his new single »Nocturnal«, he comments: “Envision yourself in the exact place where you belong. »Nocturnal« is a song about the time that you steal for yourself. It’s about friendship, and about fully submerging yourself into experiences. Driven by groovy acoustic guitar and organ and laced with psychedelic guitar. »Nocturnal« is introspective and laid back, but at the same time a fully immersive trip. So close your eyes and look around.”

Emile is the solo project from vocalist, guitarist and songwriter of Copenhagen-based acid rock trio The Sonic Dawn. Having fronted the band on four studio albums and on stage across the European continent, his musical language is fluent and expressive. This new project is an outlet for those quieter, stranger and more melancholic songs, that would never really fit into the rock group format. The music is lonely and haunting, while at the same time a surreal look at life through the multicolored kaleidoscope. Emile is an artist with a head full of ideas and a deep love for music.

All songs were written and performed by Emil Bureau, with additional instruments by Jonas Waaben (percussion), Erik Errka Petersson (Hammond Organ), Morten Grønvad (vibraphone) and Rasmus Miehe Sørensen (flute). It was recorded and produced by Emil Bureau in a beautiful place in the countryside. Mixed by Emil Bureau at The Village Recording (Copenhagen) and mastered by Hans Olsson Brookes in Svenska Grammofon Studion Mastering (Gothenburg). Artwork by Robin Gnista.
