Playing the piano since age three, spending years performing in Montreal indie bands, and releasing her critically-acclaimed self-titled debut in 2008, Béatrice Martin — the Quebecois artist behind Coeur de pirate — has spent most of her life expressing herself through music. Her delicate vocals and beautifully crafted songs have garnered her millions of fans across the world and great success both nationally and internationally, along with awards from the Canadian Independent Music Awards and Félix Awards, and Juno and Polaris Prize nominations.

In anticipated follow-up to her 2011 sophomore album, Blonde, Coeur de pirate returns with her third full length, Roses. The 11-track compilation, comprised of songs that date back as far as 2012, is being touted as perhaps her most accomplished work yet and features collaborations with famed producers Bjorn Yttling (Franz Ferdinand, The Hives), Rob Ellis (PJ Harvey), and Ash Workman (Metronomy).

The album also marks a major turning point for Martin, leaving Montreal to record in Sweden, at Portishead’s studios in Bristol, and in London’s legendary Church Studios, as well as moving towards a more modern sonic approach. In both English and French, she explores themes of heartbreak, motherhood, and insecurities through an intoxicating blend of anthemic choruses, clapping drums, pensive strings, and swelling synth. The result is dark, moving, and inspiring.

In support of Roses, Coeur de pirate is embarking on an international tour with a stop in Vancouver on September 19 at the Commodore Ballroom. Tickets are available online.
