A new cover album for Isabelle Boulay
MISE À DAY
After announcing the name of her new tour at the beginning of January, Isabelle Boulay will finally launch her new album, “The horses of pleasure (Boulay sings Bashung)”, next week.
For this 16th career opus, the Quebec singer will perform some of the greatest hits of Alsatian singer-songwriter Alain Bashung.

To do so, the interpreter, who has sold more than five million albums, surrounded himself with director Gus van Go and musicians from both sides of the Atlantic; both French, with guitarist Eric Sauviat, Quebec, with drummer Pierre Fortin, and American, with multi-instrumentalists Chris Soper and Jesse Singer.
“I have always dreamed of an album of some of Bashung's songs reinterpreted by a woman, as they seem to have been written for them. By them. Talking about them. And here today, this desire comes to life, and in such a beautiful way, so touching”, underlined the author Jean Fauque, who wrote most of the titles of Bashung, but who also lent his pen to Isabelle Boulay.
Beginning of tour
Isabelle Boulay will begin her “Americas and France” tour this Friday at the Capitole Theater in Quebec, a catwalk show between American folk country on one side, and the great French song on the other.
In addition to traveling the roads of the Belle Province, she will be in Montreal on June 10 at the Théâtre Maisonneuve from Place des Arts. For more details: https://isabelleboulay.com/#spectacles
