New album

In March 2019, STEVANS will be back with a flourish in the form of a new album, Renaissance, a highly evocative title given the name of their previous album, Rupture.

Over the course of three albums, the group STEVANS, which was founded by the French–Swiss Yvan Franel, has really left its mark on the musical landscape: songs that are still in our ears and on our lips (‘Monday’s wedding’, ‘The Backyard’, ‘When the Light is Gone’, etc.), concerts on the world’s biggest stages (Paleo Festival, Montreux Jazz, London, New York, Paris, Hamburg, to name but a few), prestigious supporting act gigs (Deep Purple, Kaiser Chiefs, Rita Mitsouko), work with talented artists (Will Jackson, Serge Morattel, Yann Rouiller) … STEVANS has forged its own unique path on the way to the release of its fourth album.

Evolution

When rupture and renaissance go hand in hand …

The rupture certainly seems to have been beneficial; after all, it heralded STEVAN’s departure for new shores. It was about questioning what had gone before, seeing things in a different light, evolving. And so Renaissance makes perfect sense. In effect, while holding to their roots and preserving what makes them who they are, Yvan Franel and guitarist Yann Secrest have evolved towards the most varied sounds and lyrics. Four years after the electro detour that was Rupture and its supercharged tracks, STEVANS is now ready to release an album of twelve tracks that oscillate between melancholy and a love of life with riffs that range from the organic to the electric, powerful and sensual at once.

Stevans’ universe

Rediscovering the world around us

This new album covers a range of themes such as family, friendship, nostalgia, joy, desire, and dance… STEVANS plays with different codes without ever confusing them. They take us on a voyage that is simultaneously introspective and open to the world. This is what people love about STEVANS: their capacity to entertain us, move us, transport us into their universe; their desire to tell us their story so well that it becomes our story; with elements of Fred Astaire, Michael Jackson, Daft Punk, Coldplay… a cocktail that is very much STEVANS and comes as a breath of fresh air, making us want to dance and rediscover the world around us.

The album Renaissance will be released on 8 March 2019.
