Eric Chenaux is thrilled to share a gorgeous new track, “3 Stars On Mountain Of Doom,” (as premiered on The New Noise) leading up to a new series of tour dates in the EU and UK this Autumn. According to Chenaux: “‘3 Stars On Mountain of Doom’ was recorded for Richard Youngs’ 50th Birthday for a limited edition of 1 compilation CD entitled 50 Years Of Youngs, curated by Madeleine Hynes. This recording is a montage-set inspired by Richard’s 3 Stars CDR and his wonderful song ‘Mountain of Doom.'”

“Bird & Moon” is once again produced by Chenaux’s longtime collaborator Eric Cazdyn, who has been the exclusive video-maker for Chenaux’s past four solo albums now, going back to 2010. This latest visual offering follows Chenaux on a pair of meandering bike rides along Toronto streets in early winter and through Paris during the bloom of spring (his two “hometowns”). Repetitions, mirrored actions, and recurring motifs from each city’s perambulations are edited using frequent, brief, complete blackouts between segments. Calmly rupturing this quotidian realism is an intervention of sorts, as Chenaux cycles past a picnic scene in each city, where “Bird & Moon” plays through a pair of tiny Danelectro amplifiers laid out on a blanket on the grass.
