Fifty years of career and twenty-two albums. Gérard Manst is undoubtedly the last craftsman of the French song. Since Animal one is wrong, released on the airwaves in May 1968, the author, both singer, composer, painter and photographer, tells the world as it is.
Here, on the new single from his latest album, ' We lie '.
Grand bourlingueur, like Paul Gauguin and the poet Charles Baudelaire, whom he admires, Gérard Manst indulges in small touches in this three-minute wandering chart.
If Raphael, Birkin, Greco and Bashung have appealed to this goldsmith for their texts, Gérard Manst, himself, has turned to the animated and elegant line of Anais Caura, a graphic designer trained in animation cinema and cabinetmaking, having realised The Man-Woman Case.
