Petite Noir has shared a new single and announced the release of a his latest mini-album La Maison Noir / The Black House.
Blame Fire is the lead single off of his new mini-album La Maison Noir / The Black House due October 5th via Roya. The new album serves as the long-awaited follow up to his 2015 album La vie est belle / Life is Beautiful. An impassioned mission statement with an irrepressible melody, Blame Fire lays out La Maison Noir's intentions, reflecting on Petite Noir's past and his future.
La Maison Noir is the third of Petite Noir's noirwave projects. Noirwave is a movement created by Petite Noir and creative director RhaRha, with its roots in music but its vision fixed firmly on the creative future. Responding to current cultural movements centered in Africa - arising against a backgrop of international anxieties concerning borders, nationhood and globalization - Noirwave offers followers a citizenship which rejoices in freedom of movement, physically and creatiely.
It is through the lens of Noirwave that La Maison Noir was created. Diverse yet instant, La Maison Noir's six tracks are imbued with a spirit that leave an indelible memory. The forthcoming mini-album features contributions from New York rapper/poet Saul Williams and Detroit rapper Danny Brown,
