Moulin Rouge
L'ombre de Lautrec (Version de l'esquisse)

03/07/2021 Garando Records
Zettaimu's single

March 7th, 2021

This is a draft version of "Moulin Rouge - L'ombre de Lautrec". Zettaimu (from JAPAN) will release the single for the first time in two years. The band is planning to record the real drums, the actual song and chorus soon.

Hisashi (Zettaimu composer/guitarist);

Lautrec is an artist that I have fallen in love with since I was young. When I visited the Moulin Rouge in Paris a few years ago, I felt the smell and shadow of Lautrec in every corner of the cabaret, and soon after returning to Japan I wrote some Moulin Rouge-themed songs.

The theme is not the "gorgeous" Moulin Rouge, but a psychedelic expression of the lewdness, decadence, and also warm relationship between Lautrec and dancers, and the prostitutes, in that cabaret in that decadent era.

This was my first main vocal in French, but this is a test recording version while learning pronunciation from my friend "Neven" who is also a French poet who wrote this poem.

​Produced, arranged and engineered by Hisashi Furue

Mixed and mastered by Hisashi Furue at Atelier508 in Tokyo

​Recorded in Tokyo, JAPAN. 2019-2021

NeVeN - lyrics

Mariko (ex-Zettaimu vo) - background vocals

Monde; foule; tourne; demoiselles déhanchent

Beautés adulées

Mêlé; noyé; drapés; airs coquins débauchent

Parfums colorés

Désespéré (Daijyobu, Lautrec)

Alcoolisé (Anshin yo, Lautrec)

Abandonné (Daijyobu, Lautrec)

Agenouillé (Anshin yo, Lautrec)

Ivresse; caresse, tendresse; des mots à la bouche


Bercé, lové, toucher; l'amour est une cache

Décadence osée

Désespéré (Daijyobu, Lautrec)

Alcoolisé (Anshin yo, Lautrec)

Abandonné (Daijyobu, Lautrec)

Agenouillé (Anshin yo, Lautrec)

Malsain; nausées; craquer; une rengaine d'ici

Des gorgées de vie

Pantin; usé; tombé; la vie vue d'ici

La passion revit

Béguin; rêver; créer; le refrain d'ici

Là, contre moi

Cœur en émoi

Réinspire-toi !
