LOU DOILLON DEBUTS VIDEO FOR “TOO MUCH”

THIRD ALBUM SOLILOQUY AVAILABLE NOW VIA BARCLAY/VERVE

2019 TOUR DATES INCLUDE STOPS IN LOS ANGELES, SAN FRANCISCO AND NEW YORK, MORE DATES TO BE ANNOUNCED


“…utterly genuine: her music bleeds heart-on-the-sleeve emotion.” —VICE Noisey

“The model/actress-turned-musician spent much of her childhood writing songs in English, and a listen to the content she’s producing makes it clear that she’s inherited a talent all her own.” —Paste

“…too smart for it all, a thoughtful and broad-minded woman who seems, at her essence, unafraid. She is wise, she is thoughtful, she is resolute, and that’s all fully present in the music, which has a timelessness about it, as well as a patina of experience.” —Jezebel

“So cool it hurts” —Vogue

Parisian singer-songwriter, actress, model and artist Lou Doillon releases her music video for “Too Much” today—watch/share the video HERE. The video was shot by acclaimed filmmaker Matt Lambert (Gucci, Givenchy, Mykki Blanco) and cinematographer/Cannes Jury Prize-winner winner Christopher Auon. The track is off her recently released, third album, Soliloquy.

In support of the album, Doillon and her band will tour widely with U.S. stops including New York City’s Le Poisson Rouge, San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall and Los Angeles’ Lodge Room. See below for more details—additional dates to come.

“Too Much” follows the release of Doillon’s video for “It’s You (feat. Cat Power).” The track received rave reviews from the likes of UPROXX, who proclaims, “The reigning queens of haunting love songs, Doillon and Cat Power’s voices are a match in ghostly, melancholy heaven. Their gorgeous harmonies shine over a minimalist acoustic melody, with the two singers’ voices interlocking in complex ways, alternately echoing and singing,” while Stereogum furthers, “The track is an acoustic duet featuring both of their voices swirling around each other.”

Following the global success of 2016’s Lay Low and her 2012 breakout debut, Places, which earned her a French Grammy for Female Artist of the Year, Soliloquy finds Doillon teaming up for the first time with multiple producers on a single album: Cat Power, Taylor Kirk of Timbre Timbre, Benjamin Leabeau of The Shows and Dan Levy of art-pop duo The dø. “I had a desire to be more up front,” she says of this new process. “Working with different people in different studios and with the different energies has brought something richer than when I worked with one producer. Extremes. I made the link between them.”

Of the music, Doillon furthers, “With some songs, I think I was going towards something…and then it became something completely different. I am a kid of the Eighties and was listening to Nineties music: Massive Attack and Les Rita Mitsouko. The Slits too. I was raised at one point in my teens in the Caribbean and the only music we had was reggae. I had a desire to reconnect with these roots. I still love Leonard Cohen, Van Morrison and Nick Drake. Let’s channel it all.”


Doillon grew up on theater stages, cinema sets and in front of some of the most renowned photographers’ camera lenses. At 30 she composed her debut LP, Places, which went double platinum in France, earned her a Victoire de la Musique (the French Grammy) for Female Artist of the Year and sold over 300,000 copies worldwide. She has since shared stages with artists including John Cale, Pete Doherty, Animal Collective, Jarvis Cocker, John Grant and Richard Hawley, and toured the world playing festivals and headlining venues in the U.S., U.K., France, Germany, Belgium, Australia and more. Notable television appearances include “CBS This Morning: Saturday” in the U.S. and “Later with Jools Holland” in the U.K.
