Warhaus Premieres New Song “Memory” Via All Things Music

New Album “We F***ed A Flame Into Being” Due Out September 2nd

Warhaus — the solo recording project of Maarten Devoldere, the front man of the Belgian band Balthazar — has debuted a new track “Memory” today via All Things Go Music. “Memory” is taken from Warhaus’ forthcoming debut solo album “We F***ed A Flame Into Being”, which will be released through Play It Again Sam/ [PIAS] music out of London on September 2nd.

“We F***ed A Flame Into Being” — a direct quote from the D.H. Lawrence novel Lady Chatterley’s Lover that Devoldere felt was “too good to pass on!” — is the perfect title for this collection of songs exploring the shadowy inscrutability of human encounters, and reveling in all the decadent intensity that life offers. The 405 online magazine in conversation with Devoldere says, “With Warhaus, Devoldere has crafted a masterpiece full of intrigue, tension, carnal tones, and just a damn cool record…. It’s a prime example of how distinctive Devoldere can be with his voice, and just how unapologetic the man can be with his lyrics.”

Maarten (who has taken a break from his front man duties in acclaimed rock band Balthazar) has until recently kept his “Warhaus” persona under wraps; but with “We F***ed A Flame Into Being” he brings to the forefront a darkly lyrical universe, fueled by desire and passion, and savagely probes its depths. The album is “an ode to love, to its excesses and elusiveness,:” declares Devoldere. Playing Jane Birkin-esque muse and foil to Devoldere’s post-modern Gainsbourg with her seductive backing vocals is Sylvie Kreusch (pictured with Maarten on the album cover).

Oh, yes. I spent 25 years as a librarian (nerd) mainly working with youth (creating nerds), a number of years as a teacher (more nerd indoctrination). I have my own spawn, leveled up to 22 and my partner in nerdiness. As a nerdy writer, I have found a home at Talk Nerdy With Us.
