L’homme de l’ombre immerses you from start to finish in a sonic and lyrical journey that rewards your mind and emotions. Here you will find the glamorous rock attitude of Marc O’s musicianship colliding brilliantly with the wise and witty writing of french philosopher Bruno Pons Levy. The result is not so much a double identity, but an intangible and powerful third element, much like the mathematical equation described in the song The triangle squared (Le triangle au carré). This song is emblematic of Marc O’s persona: a musician of style and vision, crossing cultures and decades to collaborate with a remarkable team and create this, his most personal album.
The album features a notable line-up of musician such as: Sami Yaffa (New York Dolls/Joan Jett), Dave Richmond (Serge Gainsbourg/Elton John), Christophe Deschamps (France Gall/Pete Doherty), Kath Guifford (Stereolab), Will Crewdson (Adam & The Ants/The Selecters), Danny Ray (Bo Diddley/Brian Setzer)...
Available here on CD with a full colour 12 pages booklet.
L’homme de l’ombre was mastered at the legendary Abbey Road Studiosby Sean Magee. The Album is also available on 180g black vinyl LP, Deluxe Edition, Collector's USB key, as well as digitally on streaming platforms.
