Montreal folk-pop artist Geneviève Racette has collaborated with City and Colour’s Dallas Green on a brand new single, “Someone,” premiering now on Indie88.
Racette connected with Dallas Green in 2019 after she shared an Instagram post of her covering “Hello, I’m in Delaware.” From there, their friendship grew, and Racette even sang on stage with him at Osheaga. After completing demos for her new album, Satellite, Geneviève Racette shared them with Green. He then asked if he could sing on “Someone,” which is all about desire, temptation, seduction, and fantasy. The intimate track is sure to get you emotional, with soft guitars and delicate harmonies.
“I totally heard Dallas’s voice when I wrote ‘Someone,’ but the idea of asking one of my teenage heroes to sing on my song was a little too scary,” Geneviève Racette explains. “I sent him a few demos off my upcoming album, Satellite, and out of all the songs he fell in love with this one. Dallas said he would love to sing on it if I was interested. I said yes…duh.”
Listen to “Someone” below.
“Sometimes life throws feelings at you and they’re meant to act as signals,” Racette adds. “Personally, this was an alarm constantly ringing in my ears telling me my relationship had to end.”
Geneviève Racette is releasing her 9-track album, Satellite, on March 18th, 2022. Marking her third full-length, the album is a vulnerable exploration of self-discovery.
Racette is heading out on a tour in 2022. Check out the dates below.
