Le Parisien - Interview - 17 June 2016
"Finally I dare say that I am proud of myself". Last friday Le Parisien was allowed to listen to 7 songs of the new album.
It is all about the language she speaks. She doesn't doubt anymore. The new songs sound very intimate and committed.
She says "the language I speak is not the same as the language that I sing. The language that I sing is more violent.
"Adèle" is about somebody longing to be comforted by somebody else.
"Le jour et l'heure" talks about loss and refers to the recent attacks in Paris.
"Cogne" talks about domestic violence.
"Embrasse" talks about loving life and embrace it.
"La maison en bord de mer" talks about incest.
"Ma tristesse" talks about her own melancholy.
"Sans nous" talks about a break up.
These songs are not autobiographical, but they move me. The only important thing is the emotion.
I have come to an age that the text of my songs are more and more important and it is important that I can feel what I sing".
Jonathan Quarmby, un englishman, created this new album.
Patricia says that the last two years she really didn't know where she was in her life.
She was a bit exhausted and things exploded and that opened her eyes. "Now, when I look in the mirror, I really see myself and I am proud of myself".

"Patricia Kaas loves Stuttgart
Patricia Kaas (49) entchants the whole world since 30 years with her songs.
Now the French woman has recorded a new album and she will present that at the 21st of Febr. 2017 in Stuttgart.
She is looking forward to that concert. “In Stuttgart the public is always lovely for me!”.
She likes the Swabian area. “It is very close to France and to where I was born in Lothringen” says the worldstar to Bild.
“Perhaps that I why I feel so connected”. Around the concert she wants to visit Stuttgart. “Very relaxed. I really want to do that”.
The new album, that is named after herself and will be released the 11th of Nov. 2016, is the first new record in 14 years.
“The fans said to me, that they wanted to hear me sing my own songs again, she says”.
“I wanted it to be something elegant. And we succeeded in creating that. The songs are like presents for me”.
This is the 10th Studio album in her 30 year career, shortly before she turns 50, but that is just a coincidence.
“Those are only numbers”, the singer says. But she doesn’t like to think about her 50th birthday at the 5th of Dec. 2016. “50 is an ugly number.
It hurts. But I won’t jump from the balcony of course”.
Kaas won’t celebrate her birthday. “I am rehearsing for my tour that day. Maybe my friends will surprise me…”.
The Stuttgart public will certainly celebrate her in a couple of weeks in the Liederhalle.
No wonder Patricia Kaas likes this country".
