10 DECEMBER 2019 (TORONTO, ON) – Today artist Eli Rose released a surprise holiday song, “Minuit” via Maison Barclay Canada/ Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. Listen to “Minuit” HERE.
The surprise release wraps up a successful 2019 for the French Canadian pop star who released her self-titled album in November, listen to Eli Rose HERE. The lovelorn and melancholic “Minuit” was co-written with former collaborator D R M S and Montreal-based singer songwriter Caracol, and is sure to be a new holiday classic.
“Minuit” came together after Eli was challenged to write a Christmas song. Talking about the track and rising up to the challenge Eli commented, “At first, I was like ‘Ehhhh, I’m not sure, it’s hard to write a Holiday-themed song without sounding cheesy and cliché…. BUT being every stubborn, I’ve decided to reach out to my friends D R M S and Caracol and a few days later we were working on this track that I would describe as “electro-pop-melancholic-nostalgic-and quite sad, but also not totally cheese, but also with enough bells to sound like a Christmas track” and, at the end of the day, I am very happy with this song and I was excited to share this with you.”
Eli will be touring throughout the new year starting in January 2020. Details on concerts and tickets can be found below.
