Sometimes it’s difficult to describe how music makes us feel, especially when it’s not synonymous with an emotion. Don’t be mistaken, Lou Doillon’s latest album Soliloquy (out now) has moments of emotive reflection... but more than anything, this album is downright cool. Cool in a way that could only be achieved by French royalty. It’s an album that sets a mood for the rest of your day, and after you spend a few minutes with Lou, it becomes clear to you how intentional that was.

On this episode of the podcast, Lou shares with Ken Grand-Pierre the importance of intention, along with the reasons why the making of this album was different than any of her previous experiences.

“It was important for me that we found a studio where we could play live and look at each other as we played.”
