🇬🇧🇺🇸 When Sébastien first sat down to record his new album "Domesticated", he chose to start with the song that would eventually become the heart of his album. "Domestic Tasks", as its name suggests, is about a subject of concern for the vast majority of the world population: the household chores. This song conveys the pain and distress this universal everyday tasks may generate, and especially in this context of confinement. Sébastien pictures here some aliens (named "X"s) planning on taking over the Earth, but being disappointed by the discovery of a very subjected and domesticated humanity… quite a desillusion!

🇫🇷 Lorsqu'il s'est attelé à l’enregistrement de son nouvel album « Domesticated », Sébastien a commencé par la chanson au coeur de son sujet. Comme son nom l'indique, « Domestic Tasks » invoque de manière assez inédite un sujet qui préoccupe pourtant tous les jours la majeure partie de la population mondiale : les tâches ménagères. Cette chanson exprime la peine et la douleur infligées par ces tâches domestiques, sentiments partagés par beaucoup en ces temps de confinement. Sébastien imagine ici des extraterrestres (appelés les « X ») qui arriveraient sur Terre et découvriraient une humanité finalement bien soumise et domestiquée : une déception !

lyrics

Lyrics:

A spaceship will land on the field of your heart tonight
A spaceship will land on the field of your heart tonight
A spaceship will land on the field of your heart tonight
A spaceship will land on the field of your heart tonight
A spaceship will land on the field of your heart tonight
A spaceship will land on the field of your heart tonight
A spaceship will land on the field of your heart tonight
A spaceship will land on the field of your heart tonight

Welcome to the X in the world of domestic tasks
A spaceship will land on the field of your heart tonight
Welcome to the X in the world of domestic tasks
Scream

A spaceship will land on the field of your heart tonight
Welcome to the X in the world of domestic tasks
A spaceship will land on the field of your heart tonight
Welcome to the X in the world of domestic tasks
Scream
