Geneviève Racette wrestles with self-doubt on her new single ‘Same Old Me’.   Featuring some incredibly subtle pedal steel playing by Matt Kelly (City and Color) the song is a quiet reflection following a social event that caused Racette to question herself.   Racette is also joined by Montreal-based string quartet Quatuor ESCA adding to the mournful yet hopeful emotions evoked by the lyrics. This is the first single from the Canadian singer’s forthcoming full-length album to be released in October of 2024.
