Hyphen Hyphen, the award-winning queer French pop/rock trio, has just released their highly anticipated third studio album, “C’est La Vie” via Parlophone France. The album, which includes singles “Own God“, “Call My Name“, “Don’t Wait For Me ” and “Too Young“, showcases the band’s live energy and their love for music and song writing. It delivers a great mix of sensitive, danceable, melancholic, and hedonistic pop songs that are sure to excite audiences worldwide.

The album features international collaborations with renowned artists such as Glen Ballard, who co-wrote two tracks, and top producers Mike “Spike” Stent and Dan Grech, who handled the mixing. This has led to a large international media visibility that is helping to crown the release. The band’s ability to blend various musical styles and influences, along with their unique queer perspective, makes them a standout in the music industry.

The band has already performed more than 500 concerts in Europe, and this year, they took the next step and seduced the American public with their performance at the Summerstage Festival in New York City. With plans for an international tour in 2023, it’s clear that Hyphen Hyphen is poised to take the world by storm.

It’s been four years since Hyphen Hyphen’s second album, the critically acclaimed “HH,” which was entirely written and self-produced by the band. The past four years have been a rollercoaster for the trio, going from a sold-out tour to quarantine and isolation imposed by the global pandemic. For a group that has built its reputation on stage and spent week after week on the road, this return home could have been fatal. But the band managed to turn this situation into an opportunity to reset and refocus on their love for music, performance, and song writing.

“When we recorded our previous album, it was all about showing we could be producers. For this one, it was about showing that we are musicians. Everything was recorded live in the studio. We really wanted to get back to the soul of the band,” the band said in an interview. They took a nostalgic approach and immersed themselves in the back catalogues of bands and artists from the ’70s, from Fleetwood Mac to America.
