The artist greedily evokes his latest album ‘Aimée’ and promises a great show at the Rockhal on April 28th.

Interview: Christophe Nadin

Julien Doré continues his exploration of cinemas across the country. After the Philharmonie and the Atelier, the French artist comes to the Rockhal on April 28 with a colorful show. He comes to defend “Aimée”, his latest album, in which he puts people before their responsibilities. Without ever teaching.

You have found the rooms after this long break. What do you havedid you notice anything else?

“Everything is different. I’ve been waiting for this reunion after four years away from the stage. We realize how valuable these public dates are because we know that we can be banned again overnight.

What did you miss the most in this relationship to the stage?

“The eyes. The gaze without a filter. Only the truth remains on the stage. And it only exists if we face it. Nothing else can save the artist. It’s the most valuable part of what we can do. Speak directly with those who are willing to take the time to watch us, listen to us, and sing with us This truth is at once radical, powerful, and rich.

Adrenaline is your engine?

“During the show, yes. Adrenaline is unique in that it fuels excitement and self-transcendence. My own driving force is the search for shared kindness, shared goodwill, shared smiles. Today, this tour, this show, it’s this engine that drives me. I have no other hope when I go on stage than to be myself in that moment T. I don’t want to be someone else.

If we look at your discography in a few years, can we say that “Aimée” is a pivotal album?

“I talk less about my navel and more about how I feel as a person on this planet. Fifteen years ago I met an artist named Christophe. he was my friend He always explained to me that on the holiday road you always have to prefer the side roads to the motorways. Because it is more rewarding, courageous, surprising and full of life impulses. The highway is more convenient. There is no bump or bramble. These tips mean that from album to album I have tried to choose these crossroads, to renew myself, to change the pillars that can begin to draw a foundation to rebuild something else.

The climate issue is one of the strong themes of your current album. Does a song have the power to raise awareness because it’s said in a gentle and poetic way, without ever pretending to teach lessons?

“It’s not so much the climate that’s the focus of this latest album, it’s the people. how he behaves The long-term debt of the political system too. We can share a language through songs that wake us up, that wake us up, that activate an emotion in us. Who then comes the next day or the day after to feed something that pushes us to do something else? Messages from parents arrive after a concert. They arouse their children’s feelings. An album like a short film or a novel can keep us from falling asleep in a world where culture has evaporated. Which was like that for two years.

The message of climate danger does not seem easy to print. Because this disorder sneaks into our lives and only sudden outbursts get us to react?

“The biggest questions and the most dramatic urgencies are so immense that it is easier for a man who often stands beside power to choose not to face the main story, which is essential. Or prefer to translate that urgency into a shared responsibility, which is that of citizens and the people. It’s a fairly obvious trick, a bit too simple, but one that survives from decade to decade, election to election. What is harder for people than to face death?

You are also very careful that children understand you. How to send the message to them?

“In a different way. By trying to influence the transmission, a common understanding of certain things that are discussed by parents and children. That’s why I always put a lot of emphasis on a double or triple meaning in my clips. What maybe a discussion about that what they will have seen is what interests me the most, at some point our hand will let go of theirs to let them go into a world that we are responsible and actors for today.

“Aimée” is the first name of your grandmother and mother, who were involved in noble causes. Is there a lineage of combat? A legacy you feel obligated to honor?

“I feel like the bearer of an education, a vision of things and an action carried out by my mother and her mother, because in their courage and in their silent action there is a power that has not been published for years and yet is extremely useful was I want to be a leader and a witness For love and for pride.

Can you lift the veil on what’s in store for Rockhal spectators on April 28th?

“It will be much more than a concert. We’ve been building a proper show for two years, but that’s not all. For each song there is a universe, an overall artistic proposal that I have tried to master with a lot of work to ensure that we went on a journey for two hours without really knowing the destination. But let this journey be together and evoke as many different emotions as possible. And I feel like that’s been happening since the start of the tour. I hadn’t experienced such artistic moments in fifteen years.

Are you taking Clara Luciani with you?

“It’s difficult to harmonize an agenda to share a moment together. Clara is also on tour. Every night I dreamed of singing The Island of Tomorrow with her and Fatal Tear with Eddy de Pretto. But I don’t intend to sing those tracks without her.
