DEIXAAS is the fifth record by Mercedes Peón (Altafonte, 2018). Without abandoning the roots and tradition that has made her one of the most charismatic international artists in world music, DEIXAAS incorporates a highly contemporary and avant-garde facet: this release is inspired by industrial spaces based on meticulous field work with real sound recordings of heavy machinery, made
in naval shipyards, incorporating all the aesthetic and evocative power of the spoken word format as well as providing the contrast of the atmospheric piano.
Multiple layers for a work produced entirely by the artist with meticulous care during four years.
Released together with two top singers and performers: Ana Fernandez and Mónica de Nut.
Mercedes Peón's new album was released on April 17th with unprecedented expectation from public and experts.
After the pre-release of the first single "Plataforma", came the advance of the single that gives its name to the album "Deixaas", with a massive reach of the audiovisual piece that accompanies it (and its + 5,000 visits in the first 24 / h) filmed in some famous shipyards of the Northwest of Spain.
Peón reaches new milestones in her career, breaks with aesthetic and musical clichés, goes one step further in her creative universe and leads us to the natural and contemporary evolution of her music: the perfect mix between industry and craftsmanship, modern and traditional.
It is hard to find similar artists that match the musical, aesthetic and conceptual carree peak to which Mercedes Peón has just arrived in DEIXAAS. DEIXAAS es el quinto trabajo discográfico de Mercedes Peón (Altafonte, 2018).
DEIXAAS_the tour The live format conceived for DEIXAAS expands the creative universe of Mercedes Peón in an exceptional way. It preserves the essence of the concerns present in the aesthetic universe of the composer: questions of identity, gender, language, belonging, the link transmission, the most immediate sociopolitical environment ... all converge and interact with sound and aesthetic languages never explored before this way by the artist, who gives her scenic prominence in favor of what could be considered to be an authentic band ruled by women. Absolute hot spots of the present time: Aesthetics, performing and ideas regarding leading women.
Mercedes Peón's new tour places her in an exquisite creative maturity, and the DEIXAAS show revalidates her position as an unbeatable musical icon, again capable of an unique artistic experience, a true trance that reconnects us with the most genuine in us.
The DEIXAAS live show becomes a chain of cultural transmission of first order.
