ST. GERMAIN – ST....

He’s back. And he’s still the same, only more unpredictable than before. Twenty years after Boulevard, fifteen years after the multi-platinum album Tourist (over 3 million copies sold worldwide – double platinum in Canada) and a world tour spanning several continents, Ludovic Navarre, alias St Germain, finally found his way back into the studio.
