French singer songwriter, Fox Nigon, releases 'Save The Bees' from his third album
01 June 2021
Save The Bees is the sixth track from Fox Nigon third album.
Fox Nigon explains: "A world of pollution, chemicals and electromagnetic waves, this is our environment, in the midst of global warming ... In 1555, Nostradamus published the Prophecies, where he predicted that one day, the disappearance of bees would herald the beginning of a terrible disaster for humanity. Grandson of a beekeeper, honey and nature lover, I can see that we see fewer and fewer bees. I wrote this song for all those who believe in change, and who dream of a better world. It is not too late."
Fox Nigon continues: "It is a committed song, for the defense of the planet and for the climate. From backing vocals to guitar solo, it's a catchy tune, polished melody, and simple lyrics, made to be easily memorized and played back by anyone. An anthem so that this summer is at the service of our world, of the environment..."
Fox Nigon is a French singer songwriter surfing on his own style of pop, rock, folk and blues, the origin of his nickname : “The Dark Crooner”. He became known on the Spanish scene, performing many covers in solo or with local artists.
Born in Lorraine, France, he quickly moved abroad for professional reasons. In 2008, following a stroke, he left all his former activities, to take refuge in music, a therapy that allows him to rebuild. This event had a considerable impact on his music. Today, he shares his dark vision of the world, but one always full of hope. He is the former Godfather of France AVC, an organization for stroke research and prevention.
His main artistic influences are derived from Joe Cocker, Banners, Ed Sheeran, Lou Reed, Simply Red, and Bruce Springsteen, but also French singers like Serge Gainsbourg, Alain Bashung or Jacques Higelin. His sound takes elements from several of these, particularly Joe Cocker, with whom he shares a gritty yet natural vocal texture, and adds a unique tenderness highlighted with delicate piano, hypnotic harmonies, and surprisingly intimate lead vocals.
Fox first album, "être ET renaître", was released in 2018, after a promo CD including "Laissez-moi chanter" and "Revolution", anticipating the style of the album.
With very personal lyrics, strong music, a particular voice, this dark crooner, who is rarely seen without his trademark hat and sunglasses, found his style after a stay in Liverpool, where he was plunged into the birth of rock and English pop. He then released a double single "God lives in hell" and "The clown" (Fall 2018), anticipating the release of the following album "to be AND to be".
His recent encounter with producer Matt Butler saw him deliver a more polished offering, "The game is over" (March 2019), which has enjoyed universal critical acclaim, perhaps most notably from Rolling Stone Magazine. The official video for “The Game Is Over” is directed by French filmmaker Florent Charles.
He successively released singles Aloha (June 2019), a reggae “dancing” tune filled with good vibes as we can expect in Hawaii, with another excellent video. Then followed “Love me again” (September 2019), possibly the “gem” of the next album, and “Drunk lover” (October 2019) a swing tune in pure cabaret style, before releasing “Dark world” (November 2019), a song which is inspired by the spirit of Bob Dylan's (Blowin 'in the wind).
Finally, the album "to be AND to be" (December 2019) is a compilation of his best songs with the addition of new favourites, such as “Bad boy” and “I don't want you”, in his favorite Blues style.
In September 2020, “Today's The Day” was released, the first single, and part of a new album, again produced with Matt Butler. A prolific writer December saw the release of “Mister Fear”, followed by “No no no” in February 2021. “Drink their tears” came in March March, “A day after” in April, and finally, “Save the bees” saw the light of day in May.
Further singles from the album will be available later in 2021.
