In a career that has developed over the course of the last 20 years, the multi-instrumentalist and producer has been on a restless quest to create a sound world of her own across a string of increasingly absorbing albums – none more so than her latest offering, Night Songs. As its title suggests, this is a hugely intimate album that sees her breaking away from the established way in which she makes music.

The idea of acceptance – of circumstance, self, relationships and of life in general – lies at the core of the album. It is what informs songs like Familiar, the waltzing Sweetheart and the questioning How Will I Know that examine relationships in unflinching detail. Elsewhere, on She s Yael projects own emotions in the third and reflects on her own desire to escape from herself. The album’s lyrical confessional nature and intimacy is also matched by Yael’s remarkable arrangements as well as the space within the music itself. Key to the textures on Night Songs is Yael’s use of the voice – both her own and the Hungarian-inspired Paris-based choir Zéné who appear on numerous tracks. The piano-led yearning of Watching You exemplifies the intricacy that defines the vocal arrangements on the record. The same is true of Des Miettes (English translation: Some Crumbs resplendent with a moment of wordplay worthy of Serge Gainsbourg) – one of two tracks alongside Les Trous (The Holes) sung in Yael’s native tongue on the album, both of which draw on the great tradition of French chanson. While the album reflects a period of emotional turmoil and the mania of creation, Night Songs is also an album that Yael admits has been a cathartic experience. -- Zart agency
