Melody's Echo Chamber, the project of French musician Melody Prochet, is releasing her long-awaited second album, Bon Voyage, tomorrow via Fat Possum. Previously she shared a video for its first single, "Breathe In, Breathe Out" (which was one of our Songs of the Week), as well as another song from the album, "Desert Horse" (which was also one of our Songs of the Week). Now she has shared a video for album opener "Cross My Heart" (the song was originally shared last year before the album was announced). Daniel Foothead directed the animated video, which continues the tale from the first two videos for the album. Watch it below.

Bon Voyage is her first album in six years, following her self-titled debut album from 2012, which was produced by Kevin Parker of Tame Impala. This album features a different crew of psych-rock enthusiasts: Dungen's Reine Fiske and The Amazing's Fredrik Swahn collaborated with Prochet on Bon Voyage, which also features Gustav Esjtes and Johan Holmegaard (both from Dungen) and Nicholas Allbrook of Pond. Dungen and The Amazing are from Sweden, whereas Pond hails from Australia. In a previous press release Prochet called the members of Dungen "soulmates and extreme beings, uncompromisingly intense and sensitive."

The album was recorded in the woods of Solna, Sweden. Prochet had this to say about the album in the previous press release: "Swedish nature helped me to breathe and soothed me in times of anxiety. I had a majestic forest with a lake three minutes' walk from my home. Recording sessions were a break in our lives, an escape from our frustrations as young adults, parents, musicians and embittered life jugglers. What transpired was a kind of modern fairytale full of duality: beautiful and disenchanted, happy and painful, internal and external, childish and mature, but also violent and measured. We had no structure and no limits and we stepped out of our comfort zones."

Last year Prochet was hospitalized after an undisclosed serious accident.
