Published May 10, 2018Jean-Michel Blais has been teasing his new album Dans ma main with a series of advance tracks recently, but now you can hear the entire album.
Marking the follow-up to 2016's Il, the newly released album is the Canadian musician's second proper full-length effort. However, he did also more recently collaborate with CFCF on the joint EP Cascades last year.
A press release previously described the new album like this:
Dans ma main is an expansive album of post-classical piano with strands of electronic detail. Blending his conservatory skill and precise pop sensibility with synthetic accompaniment, Blais creates unique environments where the piano's intimacy can be subtly disrupted at any time.
Dans ma main is out now via Arts & Crafts, and you can stream it in full below. You can also read Exclaim!'s recent interview with Blais about the album over here.
