Exit and its French version Fou are the first offering from L’Impératrice following two years of life on the road. Fou meaning “crazy” in French, it embodies the denouement of a decadent last decade and it promises to be a watchword for the future too. Exit / Fou is a song that you’ll have no problems losing yourself to on the dancefloor, with its convulsive rhythms and sonic playfulness – a tune swaying ecstatically in a decompression airlock situated between two glorious eras. You can watch the video for Fou via YouTube below or listen to Exit / Fou via other streaming methods here.
The track was produced by Renaud Letang (Feist, Philippe Katerine) and mixed by the Neal Pogue (Outkast, Tyler the Creator, Janelle Monae). Fou was mastered by Mike Bozzi (Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino) with a video directed by Edie Blanchard.
This devastatingly funky first offering since 2018’s ‘Matahari’ album is a tantalising taster of what’s to come…
The celebrated, sequinned, space disco six-piece will make their Coachella debut this October and the North American March tour has been postponed until then as well. The new tour dates will be announced shortly.
