Watch the video for 'Sans Toi' by Geneviève Racette
Earlier this month Montreal’s Geneviève Racette released Part One, a 3-song EP of her bilingual sophomore album No Water, No Flowers which includes two English songs Northern Star and Parachute as well as the Francophone track Sans toi. Yesterday Geneviève announce that she has released a live music video for Sans toi with an exclusive premiere via Roots Music Canada.
Initially Geneviève was hired by a friend to write music to the lyrics of Sans toi, a song about missing someone. She quickly fell in love with the track and knew it had to be on her new record. "While working on Sans toi I felt an intense connection to the song and it was then that I couldn't imagine anyone else singing it but myself," said Geneviève.
Since released Sans toi has been met by significant industry support. The song charted in the top 10 on Radio-Canada Chansons Sirius XM, was added to three Spotify editorial playlists ‘Bon matin’, ‘Café montréalais’ and ‘Nouveautés de la semaine Canada’, was included in Amazon Music’s playlist ‘Nouveautés’ and Apple Music featured it within their ‘Best of the Week’ playlist.
