At the same time, his single "7 Summers" broke Apple Music's record for most first day streams and landed him his first top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100, debuting and peaking at No. 6.

A new record was even on the rails. " After the reformation concert in Rennes, Philippe told me that he was ready to continue, especially for new titles", remembers guitarist Frank Darcel.

With Thierry Alexandre (bass) and Éric Morinière (drums), the question arises: should we stop everything? “We knew very well that if we put the hard drives in the trash, we would stop the music for good. "

Because there have already been mockups, recording sessions in the United States with guitarists Ivan Julian and Richard Lloyd, New York punk heroes, and saxophonist James Chance.

Because sketches of songs exist, fed for some by the indications of Philippe Pascal: “He wanted a song with rhythmic breaks. Rather than looking back, we decided to write this song that became Glorie. »

The shadow of Philippe Pascal accompanies Aurora: in I will not write more so often, the tribute song by Etienne Daho, in the themes addressed (European obsession, disappointed hopes), in Le voyage d 'Andrea, this instrumental that ends the record and over which his absent voice seems to hover.
