Just in time for the March full moon, Montreal's Geneviève Racette returns to wax and wane with folk pop on her third studio album, Satellite.

The LP follows the bilingual Quebecois singer-songwriter's 2019 sophomore album No Water, No Flowers and her 2016 Francophone debut Les aurores boréales. It's led by the single "Someone," which comes in collaboration with City and Colour (and Alexisonfire) troubadour Dallas Green. The two musicians connected after Racette covered his Sometimes track "Hello, I'm in Delaware" in 2019.

Co-produced alongside François-Pierre Lue, the record encapsulates the cyclical nature of self-discovery, reflection and love — the last of which is Racette's primary fixation as a songwriter.

"I think love is a beautiful thing. It's just intriguing how no one actually knows how it works and what it's made of," the artist said in a statement. "I'm pretty sure that's the main reason why I write songs: I'm just trying to figure out what the heck love is."

Grounded by Racette's expressive vocals and intimate, down-to-earth storytelling, the nine-track collection gleams with sparse arrangements polished into a celestial lushness — something strong enough to turn the tides.
