For those of you who are maybe a bit rusty with your French Frànçois & the Atlas Mountains are on hand to provide you with guidance on understanding their new song La Vérité.
La Vérité (Language Tutorial)
Whilst we can blame memory for forgetting all those French lessons we know that music improves memory and is known to engage more parts of the brain than a teacher would stood in front of class of students. Listening engages the hippocampus, lowest parts of the frontal lobe and tapping along even gets your cerebellum working. So it makes complete sense to combine learning with music…Il est logique, oui? So…a full programme of music videos feat. Frànçois & the Atlas Mountains will be rolled out to all English schools in 2015 to update and replace the current French language curriculum.
La Vérité features on Piano Ombre, the follow-up to E Volo Love. The album title translates as Calm Down Shadow (meaning to ‘no longer be scared by things, because there is a way to see things in a positive light’).The album was written in the South West of France (where Frànçois lives once again after moving home from his adoptive Bristol) and will be released on 17 Mar 2014 via Domino Records.
