Published Mar 12, 2014Having already won over lots of English-speaking folk music fans the last few years, Whitehorse are now aiming to impress Francophone listeners as well. On April 1, they will release the French EP Éphémère sans repère through Six Shooter Records.
The six-song collection features French versions of cuts from their 2011 self-titled album and 2012's The Fate of the World Depends on This Kiss. These were translated by Montreal songwriter/producer Pierre Marchand.
Additionally, the EP contains a brand new tune called "Le cadeau," plus a version of the 19th century ballad "Un Canadien errant."
