The Wire

New Project of Philippe Cohen Solal

The album is a tribute to the brave and courageous spirit of children standing up against adult cruelty. This text, written 50 years ago by the famous raw artist Henry Darger, is set to music for the first time, here by Philippe Cohen Solal (Gotan Project) and Mike Lindsay (Tunng).
To celebrate Henry Darger’s anniversaries, Philippe Cohen Solal presents in collaboration with the Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris his new short film “OUTSIDER, inspired by Henry Darger” co-directed with Pascal Gary, with animations by Gabriel Jacquel.
This special video includes new music videos for “We’ll Never Say Goodby”, “Can A Boy Forget His Mother” and “851 Webster Avenue”.
