Melanie De Biasio - I'm Gonna Leave You

Album

Melanie De Biasio released her second album, which has been described as a simple and sensual work. Rolling Stone gave it a 4-star review and JazzNews included in their Top 25 Best Albums Ever. Jamie Cullum recommended the album in his radio show and Radiohead's drummer Phil Selway chose it as his favourite album of 2014:

"No Deal had me hooked from the first listen. It sounded like Billie Holiday had walked into the sessions for Mark Hollis's solo record. […] there is true soul in this record."


Artist

Mélanie De Biasio (born 12 July 1978) is a Belgian jazz singer, flutist and composer.

Early life

De Biasio was born in Charleroi, to a Belgian mother and an Italian father. She learnt ballet from the age of three, and started playing the Western concert flute at eight. Being a fan of groups like NirvanaPortisheadPink Floyd and Jethro Tull, at the age of 15 she joined a rock band for a while.

After three years of singing studies at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels, she was awarded a first prize with a degree of highest distinction. In 2004 during a tour in Russia, De Biasio suffered from a serious pulmonary infection which caused a loss of singing ability for a full year. During this time she developed her characteristic whispering chant.

Career

Soon after she graduated, Belgian jazz musician and saxophone professor at her Conservatory Steve Houben asked her to appear in concert with him, allowing her to play in numerous festivals and other large music events in Belgium. In 2006, De Biasio was nominated for a Django d'Or award, in the "Young Talent" category.

One year later, she released her first album, A Stomach Is Burning, on Igloo Records. It was favourably received by critics and it won the "Best Jazz Album" award at Les Octaves de la Musique.

Lyrics

I'm gonna leave you yes I'm gonna
I'm gonna leave you cause I wanna
And I'll go where people love me
And I'll stay there cause they love me
No more headaches no more heartbreaks
No more, no more

I'm gonna leave you with your money
I want somebody to call me honey
I don't want gold rings
I wanna hear sweet things
I need affection and not protection
When you're teasing you should be squeezing
I'm gonna leave you yes I'm gonna
I'm gonna leave you yes I'm gonna
I don't need you baby, no more
I don't need you, no more, no more, no more, no more

Yes I'm pulled up with your person
And I'm pulled up with your person
I'm gonna leave you yes i'm gonna
I'm gonna leave you cause I wanna
Yes i'm gonna
I don't need you, no more
I don't need you, no more, no more
No more, no more, no more

Testo

Ti lascio, sì, lo farò
Ti lascerò perché voglio
E andrò dove le persone mi amano
E io resterò lì perché mi amano
Niente più mal di testa, niente più crepacuore
Non più, non più

Ti lascio con i tuoi soldi
Voglio che qualcuno mi chiami tesoro
Non voglio anelli d'oro
Voglio sentire cose dolci
Ho bisogno di affetto e non di protezione
Quando stai prendendo in giro dovresti spremere
Ti lascio, sì, lo farò
Ti lascio, sì, lo farò
Non ho bisogno di te baby, non più
Non ho bisogno di te, non più, non più, non più, non più

Sì, sono accostato alla tua persona
E sono accostato alla tua persona
Ti lascio, sì, lo farò
Ti lascerò perché voglio
Sì, lo farò
Non ho bisogno di te, non più
Non ho bisogno di te, non più, non più
Non più, non più, non più
