French Cowboy & the One are back with their 7th studio album: NIENTE. The Vendée-based band reveal the first single clip PLUS RIEN.Our favorite crazy cowboys present an album called NIENTE. In Italian, it means nothing. Nothing at all. An album about everything called nothing? No, not everything! Everything and nothing. The usual. Nothing special. Things that come up and are forgotten. Insignificant. Classifiable as unclassifiable. And what better way to announce the album than with the track PLUS RIEN? A track that tackles the themes of isolation, confinement and pandemic.Note of intent from Federico Pellegrini: "At first, I thought about changing jobs, or rather, finally finding one. One that was worthwhile. Palpable. Pandemics give you time to think. Something where you make things, chairs, tables, sit on what you've made, eat on it. I used to listen to the radio, which was all about that, the essential, the superfluous.Sometimes a song. Clara, Juliette, Stromae, Dominique, Philippe, always the same ones. Feu Chatterton. The Brel and Aznavour fires reconvened. Barbara. I thought my parents would take this music with them when they left. But no, it's back, like elephant's feet, recycled, greenwashed as we'd say today. What's the point of making something new, when you can restore the old? Ad vitam. The mind is used to it, it's reassuring, the news is bad enough, but if you make entertainment worse, it becomes torture. Whereas a chair, a table...I won't make a chair or a table, it's too late. I don't have the courage. I've gone back to writing, little by little, for myself as usual. I know how to do that, very badly certainly, but the important thing remains the pleasure, the one I get from making, always vivid."
