LUC COUSINEAU ALBUM

As a lead­ing fig­ure of Que­be­cois pop cul­ture dur­ing the last fifty years, singer, song­writer and com­poser Luc Cousineau returns with 10 new and unre­leased songs aptly called Tant qu’il y aura une chan­son (As long as there is a song) . On the back-​burner since 2013, the album saw the light of day when all the record­ings were done just before the ill­ness pre­vented him from singing and play­ing the guitar.
