Unsettled Business – The new single from LG Breton

 
Release date: Friday, November 30, 2018

Montreal-based singer-songwriter-producer and multi-instrumentalist LG Breton has dropped a brand new single today! Not only is Unsettled Business the first official solo material release from the artist since his critically acclaimed Strings Attached EP in 2015, it is also the first of a string of singles to be released periodically over the next year.
 
Lyrically, Unsettled Business is about how anyone, in the face of some important personal trauma, is prone to slip into a momentary state of madness.
 
The otherwise "serious" matter addressed by the lyrics is counterbalanced by a rather breezy singing style from Breton and an almost summery jazz vibe to the tune... albeit a quirky one. Perhaps this is partially due to the fact that it is rhythmically set to a rather uncommon time signature (5/4), which helps provide a subtle, yet continuous, sense of "unsettlement" throughout the song. Other famous songs in 5/4 include the jazz standard "Take Five" and the "Mission: Impossible" theme song.
 
As usual, LG Breton plays all the instruments on the track (guitars, bass, keyboards, percussion, etc.). He is joined by Jozy Fever (Kinzaza) on backing vocals and by long-time studio partner and award-winning sound engineer Stéphane Grimm in the final mixing stage. The end result was mastered by Richard Addison. Emerging artist Julien Le Blanc is responsible for the artwork.
 
Unsettled Business is now available for streaming and download from every digital music service throughout the world.

Here's a recent review of "I Should Have Never Let You Go" published on the New Canadian Music website.
 
Not only is it a rather flattering piece from journalist Kerry Doole but we also found out, elsewhere on that same site, that the song itself is one of their Top New Tracks this week, appearing just 15 slots away from Neil Young's new release!
 
Pretty exciting indeed!!!

- Official Press Release –

 

Strings Attached, the New Opus From LG Breton Is Here!
 
Montreal singer-songwriter LG Breton has released his second solo offering, Strings Attached. As the title suggests, it celebrates all kinds of stringed instruments: guitars, banjo, violins, double-bass, piano and, of course, vocal cords. Electric and electronic textures intertwine with various sound effects, and there are also elements of soul and folk on this EP.
 
Lyrically, "every song revolves around relationships" explains Breton. "I sing about one-night stands and summer flings. There are songs about communication problems and what happens when big promises are made. Inevitably, often indelibly, we affect each other's lives."
 
Several great firsts
 
Some of the aforementioned stringed instruments appear for the first time in Breton's personal repertoire. Other big "firsts" await the listener. Strings Attached marks the first time that Breton has released a song in French: the epic and very cinematic "Révérence" in which he exploits the full range of his voice, from the deepest spoken words to the very airy falsetto counter-melodies.
 
In addition, those who purchase the CD will receive a bonus track, a Spanish version of the EP's first single, "I Should Have Never Let You Go."
 
First-class collaborators
 
While LG Breton plays most of the instruments, there are some key collaborators on Strings Attached. His faithful studio partner, Stéphane Grimm, serves as recording and mixing engineer. There are several impeccable performances from guest musicians: Guido Del Fabbro on violin; Karl Surprenant on double-bass; Alexis Martin on percussion; and Alexis Loranger on violin and viola. Jozy Fever and Geneviève Dufresne sing backing vocals.
 
Touring dates
 
The new material is brilliantly transposed to the stage by a solid and colorful team of musicians. Songs from Breton's first album, Consider It Done! have been completely re-arranged for the occasion.
 
The Strings Attached tour is underway. Breton has performed his new music in Quebec City, L'Assomption, and Lavaltrie. He will be in Sutton on April 11 and Gatineau on April 17. More dates, including one for Montreal, will soon be announced on his website: www.lgbreton.com.

He has given nearly 2,500 performances of all kinds (stage, TV, radio, etc.) in more than twenty countries. His first album, Consider It Done! was released four years ago to critical acclaim, both here and abroad.
