Song display: Émilie Simon on her introspective cosmic adventure 'Polaris'




Émilie Simon is a French electronic pop pioneer who emerged some 20 years ago and is known for her organic, mineral-driven compositions. On top of creating her own instruments, the award-winning artist has also signed scores for documentary films like “March of the Penguins”. She’s just released “Polaris”, her first full album in nearly a decade, which was recorded between Paris, New York, Los Angeles and Montreal. She tells Marjorie Hache about this new cosmic pop adventure through the lens of her alter ego Lucie Mercier and her winged tiger. We also talk about new releases by Taylor Swift, Pearl Jam, Mdou Moctar and Lucy Rose.
