Sheila released her twenty-seventh studio album Venue d’Ailleurs earlier this year, a tribute to the plethora of styles that the French star has delved into throughout her extensive career. Sheila will be re-releasing the album on Friday October 29th with four new tracks – ‘Mon étoile’, ‘Rappelle-toi’, ‘Tout à commencer par un rêve’, and ‘Pensez à Moi’ as well as three new remixes of the album’s more dancefloor-orientated tracks.
A statement shares: “Venue d’Ailleurs is one of her most personal records. This musical autobiography oscillates between joy and melancholy, tackling different styles, such as Pop, Rock, Disco and piano-voice. Sheila sings light and nostalgic songs there (the single ‘Tous yéyé’, a nod to the sixties ‘Baby Doll’), other warm and contemporary ones (the folk ballad ‘Belle Journée’, the captivating ‘Chaman’ and ‘Venue d’Ailleurs’), without forgetting some intimate and fragile ones (‘La Rumeur’, ‘Cheval d’Amble’).”
The original album was a triumph with the slinky contemporary pop of Tous yéyé, sixties inspired Baby Doll, folk and singer-songwriter flavours of Belle Journée and the addictive dance music vibes of Laws of Attraction featuring Nile Rodgers. The former and latter of these tracks will be the subject of the upcoming remixes.
With nineteen versatile tracks, Sheila covers all bases on this rerelease which will be available in a 2CD + DVD version and upcoming 2LP vinyl set.
