Eddy de Pretto makes his big comeback. This Friday, the singer releases his third album “Crash Coeur”. A romantic and musically more pop record, like the single “Love’n’Tendresse”. “ It’s my most romantic album, that’s for sure. My friend has spoken. I was coming out of Covid, a period which undermined us all a little » indicates the interpreter of “Kid” in an interview for Purecharts: “ I didn’t have the strength to add another layer, so I decided to take a step aside, to try to grant myself the happiness and love that I never allowed myself. And that gave rise to this album. There is still darkness and darkness because I believe that deep down I am a soul that is quite heavy to bear psychologically, but I tried to play the thread of optimism “. Whoever shares a duet with Juliette Armanet on the disc has a challenge to take up and hopes to convince as many listeners as possible. Because if his first album “Cure” was a phenomenon with 400,000 copies sold, the second, “To all the bastards”, did not arouse the same enthusiasm with just over 70,000 sales on the clock.

“There was a certain gentrification…”
Was he “ lost » with this disc, as asked by our colleagues from Paris Match ? “ I love “To All the Bastards” and I absolutely don’t regret it » he immediately qualifies before admitting: “ But it’s true that I put a lot of pressure on myself at the time because, after the success of the first album, I had the feeling that I had to judge what was happening in society, in a way that almost sociological “. According to him, ” there was a certain gentrification and superficiality in (his) way of approaching writing “. However, Eddy de Pretto assures that he has not let himself be blinded by show business, he who says he maintains “ a healthy relationship » with his own notoriety: “ The superficiality I speak of came from me. There, I finally detached myself from these injunctions. We live in an ultra-divided era, where everyone has their own comment, I don’t want to add another layer. On the contrary, I took the opposite view by talking about love and the quest for happiness “.
At our microphone, if Eddy de Pretto says he has “ want it to work “, he prefers to rejoice in the ticket sales figures for his big tour which will last throughout 2024: ” I do this job for the stage basically. The more people we have in the theaters, the happier I will be. The more I toured with this album, the better I would be. Here we are lucky, the first spring tour is already sold out, there are 20 or 25 already sold out. Then we do the festivals and behind that we have the new dates that we have just added, including a Bercy. It’s going well but you have to persevere! It is the objective “.
