Wilfred Le Bouthillier has released a new single entitled “J’attendrai” (I will wait for you). It’s his first single for his album coming out this Fall. It’s a poetic song about a man waiting for his love to come home.
Wilfred Le Bouthillier uses figurative language to describe how he feels. He compares love to a burning feeling inside. His soul and skin are on fire, figuratively. He explains how he’d like for the flame of desire to continue burning. He also uses metaphors such as a reference to being the wind that will be a guide for his significant other in their journey. The lyrics have a lovely and smooth rhythm. The same thing applies to the music. Love is a journey, which is a theme in this song.
The music reminds me of his 2013 album entitled “Je Poursuis Ma Route” ( I follow the road). It’s a mix of folk & pop. The guitar/banjo in the background compliments the song nicely. One can hear this tune that can while on a road trip. His voice is in sync with the music.
Wilfred Le Bouthillier’s voice is harmonious and smooth. Incredible as always!
