Just 10 years ago, Down to the Bone was released by Les Disques du Soleil et de L'Acier - a Depeche Mode tribute album on which Sylvain Chauveau sang on record for the first time. 11 tracks that the musician reclaims in the sober style he is known for leaving just the bare bones of the originals. With the Nocturne ensemble, Chauveau redefines the contours of these hits we all know to provide an intimate and highly personal vision. This critically acclaimed album is an essential records for lovers of Chauveau's minimalist works (The Black Book of Capitalism, Nocturne Impalpable) as well as Depeche Mode's hardcore fans To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the album's release, Ici d'ailleurs will be reissuing it on CD and for the first time as a vinyl LP, with a new artwork. A decade and several albums later Down to the Bone still sounds as one of Chauveau's biggest success, not only a simple tribute which means taking distances from the original tracks. Pop inspiration is still there, but these pieces bring a meditative, even melancholic touch through an acoustic treatment which offers an unique contemplative experience. Let be sure that the care provided to these eleven elegant tracks was the best way for Chauveau to declare his love to Depeche Mode music. Also note that Sylvain Chauveau will play together with a new set of musicians some amazing shows dedicated to Down to the Bone, including one first concert in Paris on November 2015 the 28th.
