Stereolab singer and co-founder Laetitia Sadier returns with her first full-length solo album since 2016’s Find Me Finding You. This time there’s a message of unity, earthbound resonance, body and spirit in harmony. Release your ego. The album itself employs novel cut-up lyrical and musical techniques, allowing Sadier’s ego freedom to explore surprising places.

Lead single Un Autre Attente is a fine example of maintaining an implacable presence while conducting from the inside. The calm within the storm, although of course there’s rarely so much as a raised voice in the typically laid-back vocal delivery and bouncy rhythms. Don’t Forget You’re Mine and The Inner Smile most explicitly express a desire for alignment with nature and ourselves so we’re equipped for whatever future uncertainty might bring.
