Following the success of his music video for “Her Morning Elegance” which earned him a Grammy nomination, over 30 million views on YouTube, and saw him performing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Israeli singer-songwriter Oren Lavie makes his return in 2017.
Today, he announces his new album Bedroom Crimes set for release on May 12th via Sony Music Entertainment FR. In celebration, he releases the first single titled “Did You Really Say No” and its accompanying video featuring Vanessa Paradis. Haunting and rhythmic, propelled by sensual, reverb-drenched melodies, the video was directed by Oren himself and was inspired by the French New Wave cinema of François Truffaut and Jean-Pierre Melville.

Regarding the collaboration with Vanessa Paradis, Oren comments, “I was always very moved by her. I was a fan of French culture in general and I grew up listening to Jacques Brel and Georges Brassens. ‘Did You Really So No’ was originally written as a duet for a man and a woman, telling one story from two different points of view. I asked my publisher if we could send it to Vanessa, who responded with enthusiasm. I met her in Paris and I played the piano and she sang. In two hours it was done!”
Bedroom Crimes is an 11-track collection of organic arrangements highlighted by elegant piano, and celestial strings. Produced entirely by Lavie at home, he comments: “For me the album is like a series of paintings of people in their bedrooms: eleven songs are eleven scenes: isolated moments in which a crime of the heart is being committed. When I say ‘a crime’ I mean the feelings we often hide from the people close to us, or those we passively project upon them, like fear, jealousy, hate… and also love.”
