An ode to “different people”
“To all the weirdos, the strange ones, the bastards, the monsters, those who disturb, put them aside”, sings Eddy de Pretto in the song “Freaks”. This second album is indeed an ode to “different people”, he says, who do not correspond to imposed social standards. “The ugly, the weird, the weird, the PD, the bastard, I really received those words”, says the singer. Harsh words that he chose to turn around and make his own: “and therefore suddenly, instead of being overwhelmed, wearing them as a weakness, I say that these differences are going to be only positive, and that’s what will be the most beautiful “.
The singer also evokes his childhood in the Parisian suburbs, in Créteil, where in his teenage room, he projected himself into an artist’s life. “I also hear the improvised notes of my keyboard where I promised myself that one day I would be able to play perfectly”, he sings in “Créteil Soleil”. A life at 27, after hundreds of thousands of albums sold and dozens of concerts, Eddy de Pretto is no longer content to dream.
