Cœur de pirate is the self-titled debut album by Canadian singer Cœur de pirate, released September 16, 2008 on Grosse Boîte.
Coeur de Pirate, the eponymous album debut by Québécoise singer/songwriter Béatrice Martin, was something of a novelty success at first, as one of its songs garnered media attention as the soundtrack to a viral YouTube video, yet the album was a success all the same and well-deserving of its eventual international hit status. Coeur de Pirate is a rather simple album, comprised of spare songs performed on piano by Martin. There is additional instrumentation, but not much - some acoustic guitar, bass, and strings here and there, but mostly just Martin and her piano.
Late that year, Cœur de Pirate's second album, Blonde, saw release and reached the Top Five in France, Canada, and Belgium. Martin announced she was pregnant in February 2012, giving birth to a daughter that September. For a while afterward, Martin focused on soundtrack work, writing music for Radio-Canada's medical TV drama Trauma in 2013 and the Ubisoft video game Child of Light in 2014. The following year, she returned with Roses, the first Cœur de Pirate album to feature half its songs in English and half in French.
Cœur de pirate (French for "pirate heart") is the stage name for Béatrice Martin (born September 22, 1989), a Canadian singer-songwriter from Montréal, Québec, Canada. She writes and sings mainly French songs and is sometimes attributed to Nouvelle Chanson. Béatrice has played the piano since the age of three, which was initiated by her mother, a professional pianist.
Album · 2008 · 12 Songs. Her chosen name is apt: the heart of a pirate. Béatrice Martin sings of love like a renegade swashbuckler on her debut LP-if that swashbuckler had a devastatingly innocent voice and played pretty piano ditties. The roots of Martin's brittle coo can be traced back through the history of French chanson, which she updates here with enchanting cheekiness. The whole thing lasts just over 30 minutes, but it takes mere moments for her to sweep us off our feet and into her world of romance and whimsy. Cœur de pirate Cœur de pirate.
