He’s everywhere right now! After taking a step back in 2019 and 2020, Orelsan never ceases to be in the news this fall. This Tuesday, October 26, 2021, the rapper from Caen (Calvados) has unveiled the title and release date of his next album.
With his series, the streams explode!
These last weeks, Orelsan makes a lot of talk about him. His documentary series retracing his career, Never show that to anyone, has been a hit since October 15, 2021 on Amazon Prime Video. So much so that its distribution has caused a renewed interest in its titles, which have seen their number of streams explode on platforms like Spotify u itunes.
The rapper has also scheduled a major tour that will begin in 2022, including a first date at the Zénith in Caen on January 15, which filled up in… 5 minutes! Finally, last Thursday, the Beauregard Festival announced his return this summer, for a 3rd concert in the park of the Château d’Hérouville, on Saturday July 9th.
15 tracks including 3 featurings
With all that, we suspected that an album would follow. It’s official since Tuesday, October 26, 2021. The 39-year-old artist announced on his social networks the release of his new opus on Friday, November 19.

Entitled Civilization, it is composed of 15 sounds including 3 featurings (editor’s note): with his friend Gringe on the title Flowters Infinity breakers, with The Neptunes on Last drink and with his other lifelong friend Skread on Together.
This highly anticipated project is the fourth solo album byOrelsan after Lost in advance (2009),
Mermaids’ song (2011) and The party is over (2017, republished in 2018 under the title The party is over – Epilogue). A record which should confirm his status as a major artist on the current French scene.
