HEADLINE TOUR ANNOUNCED FOR 2024
15 DECEMBER 2023 (TORONTO, ON) - Canadian rocker TALK shares a heartfelt rendition of one of the most culturally cherished francophone songs, “La Ziguezon”, out today via Capitol Records/Range Music/Universal Music Canada. Having grown up surrounded by the vibrant cultural tapestry of Québec, TALK expresses gratitude for the warm embrace he has received from the people of Québec over the past two years. Watch TALK performing “La Ziguezon” at Festival d'été de Québec earlier this year HERE.
TALK shares, "I’ve grown up with the culture of Québec all around me but over the last two years Québec has given me a massive bear hug and adopted me as one of their own. I could think of nothing more fitting than releasing my own version of one of the most culturally cherished francophone songs ever made. To the people of Québec, I love you and I hope anyone hearing this for the first time, English or French, finds as much joy in this song as I do. There’s so much culture in Québec to discover. I hope this song is your gateway to everything else."
In Canada, “La Ziguezon” was previously released as an exclusive special edition track on the physical album Lord of the Flies & Birds & Bees, available on TALK’s UMUSIC merch store HERE. TALK’s debut album is now certified Gold in Canada, and this special version of the track is now available digitally worldwide for fans and will continue to captivate audiences with its unique blend of his signature sound and the timeless charm of the original francophone classic. The music is a celebration of cultural diversity, uniting English and French speakers through the universal language of music.
TALK’s debut album released earlier this year and comes after a whirlwind few years for TALK, born Nicholas Durocher. After “Run Away to Mars” went viral in 2022, the song topped Billboard’s Adult Alternative charts earlier this year and is certified 4x Platinum in Canada. While he continues to be a huge sensation on TikTok, he’s proving to be quite the onstage powerhouse, completing tours with Young The Giant, Milky Chance, conquering Lollapalooza, Life Is Beautiful Festivals and opening for Shania Twain. To celebrate the release of his debut album, TALK announced an extensive North American headlining tour in 2024. Full list of dates and ticket available here.
