Sofiane Pamart announces new album and shares single ‘LOVE’

by the partae

The enfant terrible of classical music, French pianist Sofiane Pamart has announced the release of his second studio album, LETTER, out February 11 on Play It Again Sam, sharing lead single ‘LOVE.’ One of 2021’s top 10 most-streamed classical artists in the world, Pamart has built a career on defying elitist rules, imbuing his brooding, poetic and emotionally poignant classical compositions with flickers of hip-hop influence, opening the oft-cloistered genre up to a much wider audience. Steadfastly devoted to his own work as opposed to the interpretation of classical repertoire, the forthcoming LETTER aims to prove why the boundary-pushing, ground-breaking Pamart is worthy of his dazzling success.

Romantic and delicate, new single ‘LOVE’ illustrates the distance in love: referring, with a sweet melancholy, to the symbolic distance of detachment as well as the physical aspect of absence. The presence of birds in the video represents the volatile and evolutive dimensions of love. Whether it is through passion, an alliance, friendship, fear or affection, love always spreads, it’s ephemeral, fatal and ever-changing. The music video is once more directed by the secretive duo Sofiane Pamart and Guillaume Héritier with whom he just co-wrote the book PLANÈTE, their travel and poetry notebook.

After graduating with a gold medal from the Conservatoire National de Lille and becoming the go-to pianist for the French rap scene, Sofiane Pamart embarked on a solo career in 2019. This followed collaborations with artists such as SCHKoba LaDMaesNiskaJoey StarrValdLaylowTiakolaZolaRimKDa Uzi, not to mention RilèsBon EntendeurNTOThe Magician and Marina Kaye.

Heralded as the “New Face of Luxury” by the Paris Salon du Luxe, Sofiane is recognised for his style, combining the elegance of high-end fashion with his own interpretation of street style. Working regularly with prestigious maisons and brands such as Maison CartierC. BechsteinMonclerChivasEtudes StudioLacosteKappaUbisoftFila EuropePolaroid and more, Pamart is a unique artist – a haute couture pianist with an appetite for street style and hip-hop.
