Cœur de Pirate is the solo project of award-winning singer-songwriter and pianist Béatrice Martin. She released her self-titled debut album in September 2008, to immediate national and international acclaim, before returning in November 2011 with her sophomore album, Blonde. In 2014, Martin provided the soundtrack to Radio-Canada’s hit medical series, Trauma, as well as the original score to Ubisoft’s video game, Child of Light. Cœur de Pirate has now sold more than one million albums worldwide and counting.
Martin returns in 2015 with her third album, a collection of songs that finds the artist boldly expanding her horizons and modernizing her approach. The intoxicating first single “Carry On”, which was recorded in Stockholm with producer Bjorn Yttling (Peter Bjorn and John, Franz Ferdinand, Lykke Li), signals the end of an era and ushers in another, where Martin reflects more deeply on her life up to that point.
