With the news of a debut album titled Grande est La Maison due on February 28th, 2020, via Cabane Records, Cabane, led by Belgian composer and photographer Thomas Jean Henri, has shared a video for the single “Sangokaku.” For this first full-length the group is rounded out by musicians Will Oldham (Bonnie “Prince” Billy) and Kate Stables (This Is The Kit), performing select songs arranged by Sean O’Hagan (The High Llamas).

The ten-track Grande est La Maison, which includes an updated version of the “Sangokaku” single originally released in 2015, follows previous singles “Sangokaku” and “La Gomera,” and 2017’s “Wooden Home / Here in the Wind.”

Commenting on the music, Henri said, “During the work process a vibrant image of Will and Kate treading through the river waters, passing each other like ships in the night, never left me. Each one setting out from the opposing river bank, slightly uncomfortable and their meeting in the middle. The choir is on the river side, keeping their distance. Time and the slowness of oblivion are at the heart of the Cabane project. An essential question is asked: ‘What do we do with what we have in our hands?’”
