The “Banana Split” singer has just launched a crowdfunding campaign to support the release of the record she has been working on since 2020. In exchange, she is offering a t-shirt or an “aperitif” with her.

“On your fine heart” she wrote on Instagram. Monday May 27, Lio launched a crowdfunding campaign in order to be able to produce his next record “not by selling my rights to majors or labels, who don’t want me anyway, because a 60-year-old pop singer, well, it’s only me who wants her… And maybe you? “, she quips in a video.

It would be “the decidedly pop album of a “senior”for which the interpreter of Brunettes don’t count for plums called on Hoshi, Corine, Owlle, Betta Lemme and Isïa Marie for the writing of his songs, but also “a few guys”. “Something crazy on which my happy future depends”, she summarizes in her Instagram Reel. His latest album, Lio canta Caymmi, was created in 2018.

She, who has been working on this project since 2020, says she can no longer support it financially alone. “I don’t have the money to continue and make this record […]. If you want to listen to it, I need your help, that’s why we’re launching this fundraiser”, she writes. This will be available for one month only, and allows its contributors to choose a reward: pre-order the album, receive a T-Shirt or even try to win “an aperitif with Lio” in Paris at the end of 2024 or beginning of 2025.

On the Kiss Kiss Bank Bank site where she is launching her crowdfunding, we find her text published on Instagram, but also: “Lio is success at 16; vs‘is the lolita of the 80s’; Lio, the wandatta; she is the mother of 6 children; Lio, the freed woman; this is the word for Marie Trintignant; Lio is fire; that patriarchy has continued to suffocate. Reminder of his career which began in 1979 with Banana Split, but also of her feminist positions and her repeated comments on the murder of her friend Marie Trintignant. HAS Libé in July 2023, she still denounced the passivity of society in the face of domestic violence.

On the site, delivery of pre-ordered CDs is estimated for May 2025. “I know that in any case normally, thanks to your good heart, I will probably be able to make the record”, optimizes the singer. In just 24 hours, the prize pool reached 40% of its goal.
