On the new single and album, Eli Rose notes: “I had the chance to do a studio session with the producer AC and his sister Vanessa Castillo Vasquez, but with the pandemic, the demo fell into oblivion. When I started writing my new album, I stumbled across the beat and it was exactly the sound I was looking for. Realmind and Mathieu Lippé joined to finalize the writing of the song and we added it to the album at the last minute!”
Hypersensible arrives as follow-up to Eli Rose's self-titled debut album, released in 2019. Following the whirlwind that was Eli Rose, Eli describes the process of creating Hypersensible as turning a new leaf as we see a new side of Eli Rose – delicate yet strong, soft spoken yet confident.
In the process of finding herself, she again sought the help of others, building a team of studio wizards charged to elevate her intimate pop songs with shiny beats. She found a soulmate in Gaële, one of Québec’s most prolific and talented songwriters. She also reconnected with famed Québécois producer Ruffsound (Loud, Koriass, Coeur de Pirate), who was instrumental in shaping her previous album, as well as RealMind (Zach Zoya, YG, Loud), Connor Seidel (Half Moon Run, Charlotte Cardin, Matt Holubowski), DRMS (Ariane Moffatt, SOMM) and others. She also found a guide and mentor in Nk.F, the mysterious and prolific producer behind superstar French rap duo PNL who counts Angèle, Orelsan and Booba among his many clients.
Wistful and empowered, the artist behind Hypersensible is ready to explore and embrace her emotions in all its intensity.

About Eli Rose:
Four years after the release of her acclaimed self-titled debut album, Montreal’s own Eli Rose is back to wow her growing fanbase with a new collection of intimate and seductive songs that confirm her obvious talent for setting emotional introspective lyrics to catchy pop hooks.
After exploring the aftermath of a love story gone bad on her debut, Eli Rose is ready to expose the most intimate recesses of her soul, sharing thoughts plucked straight from the pages of her diary.
This much needed process of self-reflection came at the tail end of whirlwind year, which saw her sharing stages with pop luminaries such as Angèle and Jaïn while leaving a lasting mark on the Quebec market. Her singles “Carrousel”, “Soleil” and “Emmène-moi” garnered massive airplay and an impressive 26 million global streams, a rare feat for a Francophone artist. Eli also saw her work rewarded with prestigious accolades, including the coveted Révélation de l'année (“Breakthrough artist”) at Gala de l'ADISQ in 2020 and Chanson francophone Populaire de l’année (“Pop Song of the Year”) at Gala SOCAN for “Carrousel”. She also won the Prix premier album at Rencontres de l’ADISQ – awarded to a debut album that made the biggest impact on Quebec commercial radio – two years in a row, in 2020 and 2021.
Allowing herself a break to reconnect with herself and taking time to bond with her newborn child, Eli realized she still had a lot of music in her and began to work on new material, allowing herself to look back on her professional journey while assessing her role in an industry that can be both rewarding and punishing.
This process of self-reflection and reinvention was by no means a solitary journey: after working on her lyrics with Gaële, one of Quebec’s premier songwriters, she assembled a dream team of Montreal’s finest beatmakers and producers. Nk.F (Angèle, Booba, Orelsan, PNL), Ruffsound (Koriass, Loud, Dua Lipa), Connor Seidel (Half Moon Run, Matt Holubowski, Charlotte Cardin), RealMind (Zach Zoya, YG, Loud), DRMS (SOMM, Ariane Moffatt) are among the elite artists who answered her call. Through these numerous collaborations, Eli Rose continued to grow as an artist, affirming her singular voice in the Canadian pop landscape.
Blending urban rhythms and ethereal, seductive voice, she achieves a delicate balance between vulnerability and confidence, proving in the process that her acute sensitivity might just be a superpower.
