STROMAE. After having presented it exclusively on the set of TF1’s JT, Stromae unveils the clip for his second single, “l’Enfer”, taken from his new album.

[Mis à jour le 12 janvier 2022 à 18h25] Two days after his masterpiece on the TF1 JT set, Stromae unveils the clip of Hell, his second single from the Multitude album, expected in the spring. A minimalist video, in which we discover the Belgian singer, alone, sporting a long ponytail, a new look associated with his third album.

Struggling alone in the face of his demons, Stromae brings to life the lyrics of this song, which evokes thoughts of suicide and the fight against “guilt”. “I sometimes had suicidal thoughts. And I’m not proud of it. We sometimes believe that this is the only way to silence them. These thoughts that make us live in hell,” sings the interpreter of All The same. A rare highlighting of a social issue too rarely mentioned publicly.

Stromae offers a memorable new sequence on French television. Guest of TF1’s JT Sunday January 09, 2022, the Belgian singer, after a report on his career and his long break, performed on the set of Anne-Claire Coudray a new song, called Hell. It was while answering a question from the journalist about the loneliness, the discomfort he could have felt during these seven years of silence, that Stromae began to sing in front of the camera.

The single Hell, which evokes suicide, has also been posted on all streaming listening platforms, after Stromae appeared on TF1. This surprising interview quickly, like the song, made the rounds of social networks, where thousands of anonymous people or personalities salute the performance and the genius of a long-awaited Stromae.

No offense to his detractors and various polemicists, the singer drew the attention of Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the director general of the World Health Organization (WHO). “Thank you Stromae for highlighting the difficult subject of suicide in your last album”, he wrote in a message on Twitter in which he relays the video of the artist on the set of Anne-Claire Coudray, Sunday evening. “So important to ask for help if you are having difficulty and to support those who need help,” adds the boss of the WHO.

Stromae’s performance on the set of the 20 Hours of France 2 is obviously reminiscent of another cult moment in his television career: in 2013, the singer had split on the set of the Grand Journal of Canal + to perform his song All The same. Another sequence that caught viewers by surprise and made a date in the history of French television.

It is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated albums of the start of the year: Multitude, from Stromae. His third album, the Belgian singer is due out on March 4, 2022. It will of course include the first two singles unveiled in recent days, Health, released on October 15 and Hell, released January 9. Two tastes of Multitude which clearly aroused the curiosity of fans of the artist: the clips of these two songs were viewed 25 and 3.6 million times respectively on YouTube.

As for the album title, Multitude, Stromae explained the meaning to Anne-Claire Coudray in the TF1 newscast: “I think we are all multiple, we have lots of different characters and personalities, we are not summed up in a straitjacket or a box . ” Inspired by his life, his travels and his diversity, the interpreter of Papaoutai promises “different grooves”. “I love to mix things up. The idea was really to take inspirations everywhere without pointing a finger at a country,” he explained to the 20 hours.

It is therefore the second single unveiled by Stromae: the song Hell, which succeeds Santé, the first single from his upcoming album. As we can see again in the video above, it is on the set of 20 Hours of TF1, Sunday January 09, 2022, that the singer interpreted for the first time this title, immediately put online on the platforms of listening in streaming.

After celebrating people on the front lines in Health, Stromae speaks with Hell suicide, in a serious text. “I have sometimes had thoughts of suicide. And I’m not proud of it. You sometimes think that’s the only way to silence them. These thoughts that make us go through hell. These thoughts that make me go through hell “, he sings in Hell.

“I’m very happy to make this announcement, it’s been a while, see you soon.” Last week, Stromae confirmed his return by lifting the veil on the name and release date of his long-awaited new album: Multitude expected in stores on March 4, 2022.

To those who do not …”, sings the author, composer and Belgian performer in this piece, in which he evokes different trades, these “everyday heroes” tested by the Covid-19 pandemic: “Airplane pilot or nurse, truck driver or flight attendant, Baker or fisherman. “

But does the title of this new song have any other meaning? On the Internet, the term Health is very often used in association with that of Stromae, which withdrew from the scene in 2015 after, precisely, health problems. Victim of serious side effects of preventive anti-malaria treatment, he had to withdraw from public life. “I did not support the treatment, it gave me hallucinations. I thought I had fallen into madness, I was diagnosed with psychic decompensation”, he confided in this regard to Liberation in 2017.
