Fans of Woodkid have awaited a new album for seven years, but the man is in no rush. After the success of his first LP The Golden Age, Woodkid quietly reaped the rewards: he directed a music video for Rihanna, wrote a film score (Jonas Cuaron’s – son of Alfonso Cuaron – film Desierto), produced for other artists (Mykki Blanco’s album Mykki), and penned the music for a Louis Vuitton show. He then went on to ponder “the collective and individual responsibility of creating in a world on the edge of breaking point” which resulted in this rather solemn second album, a sort of “science fiction thriller”. The first thing we notice is Woodkid’s voice. He has been regularly working with a voice coach and has improved both his vocal height and depth. This can be heard on the melancholic Shift, composed in the period after the 2015 attacks in Paris, and on Horizons Into Battlegrounds, on which the Frenchman channels Nick Cave. Instrumentals again feature a symphonic orchestra (“less emphatic and less Hollywoodian according to the artist) and computer assisted music software, resulting in sounds that are lyrical (Reactor), metallic (Highway 27) and grandiose (on Goliath, a signature Woodkid track). © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

It would be an understatement to say that Yoann Lemoine's latest album was as eagerly-awaited as the name of the new Pope... And so here is Golden Age, bathed in a startling aura of musical luxury. It rather gives the listener the feeling that they've been plunged headlong into the soundtrack for a mad film, written by a Woodkid bristling with inspiration from all genres. Somewhere between futuristic electro and warm string sounds, the film-making musician has created an epic, never impersonal (on the contrary!) and musically excellent. © PY/Qobuz

Better known as the director of videos for Katy Perry ("Teenage Dream") and Lana Del Rey ("Born to Die"), multi-skilled Frenchman Yoann Lemoine showcased his own musical talents with Run Boy Run, the second EP released under the guise of Woodkid. Transferring the cinematic quality of his promos into his atmospheric pop sound, the follow-up to 2011's Iron EP and precursor to upcoming album The Golden Age includes the title track alongside remixes from SebastiAn, Tepr, and Ostend. © Jon O'Brien /TiVo
