Introducing: Stromae – l’enfer

Paul Van Haver, better known by his stage name Stromae, is a Belgian singer, songwriter and record producer. He began his music career in 2009 and has since released two studio albums. His latest album, Racine Carrée, was released in 2013 and spawned the successful singles Papaoutai and Tous les mêmes.

Stromae’s forthcoming third album will feature the single L’enfer on it. L’enfer is the French word for “hell.” Appropriately, the song is dark and somber, touching on themes of suicide and mental illness. In it, Stromae describes how he suffered during his artistic hiatus, which lasted for eight years, and how he still suffers today.

Stromae continues to push the boundaries of what it means to be a musician, and L’enfer is no different. As fans know well by now, even though it seems like all of Stromae’s songs are very personal and specific to him – they’re not only his experiences but other people can relate to them as well!

Last but not least, I want to say this to you. We all get through hell sometimes, but that doesn’t mean we’re stuck there. Whether you’re struggling to stay afloat or plowing ahead despite everything around you falling apart, it’s key to never stop believing in yourself. Life can be l’enfer sometimes – no matter what obstacles lay in our path, we have to try and make things better for ourselves and those around us.
