MONTAIGNE ANNOUNCES ANTICIPATED DEBUT ALBUM ‘GLORIOUS HEIGHTS’

Thrilling, unconfined songstress, Montaigne has today announced the greatly anticipated release of her debut full-length LP, Glorious Heights set to drop on August 5.  She will be celebrating with her extensive BECAUSE I LOVE YOU national tour, set to kick off at The Brisbane Festival on September 13, moving through Toowoomba, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra, Port Macquarie, Caloundra, Wollongong, Sydney, Newcastle, Geelong and finishing up at the iconic Corner Hotel in Melbourne on October 15.

 

The new single released earlier this month, Because I Love You offers an electrifying perspective on pop music and an exciting taste of the debut album.  Ever the innovator, Montaigne collides an impossible variety of influences on this track.  Catchy piano chord progressions and sparkling string arrangements are sculpted to perfection around the anchor of her stunning vocal.  The woman behind Montaigne, Jess Cerro, says of the release, “Because I Love You is a look back at what you’d known to be a healthy and fulfilling relationship whilst experiencing it, but with a little perspective discovered was pretty bad.”

The new album, Glorious Heights is an in-depth exploration of the world that encompasses Montaigne.  80’s inspired, but impossible to contain, Glorious Heights was written in close collaboration with Tony Buchen (Andy Bull, Spookyland, The Preatures) and recorded at Sony Studios and Studios 301.  Montaigne’s voice is ubiquitous and soaring throughout; an earnest staple that empowers and inspires sincere emotion in the listener.  Of the release, Cerro says, Tony and I did whatever the hell we wanted without thinking about things we’re fans of too much, only using references to illustrate to one another what kinds of sounds we wanted.  I want to preach empowerment by means of self-improvement; to be able to identify ones weaknesses, analyse them, and mitigate them.  I want people to realise that the warrior of this age is the kind that combats evil by refusing to take part in the processes that sustain it.”

A Montaigne show must be seen to be believed, as the undeniable talent this young person encapsulates is truly something to behold.  Pumped to be hitting the road to tour her new album for fans in September and October, Cerro enthuses, I think this will be the most fun tour yet.  It’s gonna be like a grand quest, and what we’ll be questing for is les frissons which come with live performance.  It’s gonna be so nerdy and great!”
