Melody’s Echo Chamber issues update following “serious accident”

French musician Melody Prochet thanks fans "for all the support letters and love"

Melody’s Echo Chamber singer Melody Prochet has issued an update following news in June that she had suffered a “serious accident”.

The dream-pop solo project of French musician Prochet previously cancelled a tour scheduled in support of second album ‘Bon Voyage’. That album was expected to be released in the spring but was put on hold following the incident.

Prochet has now posted a photo to Facebook, along with the caption: “Dear friends, a million Merci for all the support letters and love. Goodness health love and peace of mind to you all.” See that below.

Prochet’s family had previously issued a statement to the musician’s Facebook page, writing: “We are optimistic, but she needs to be in the hospital for a few more months. She is hopeful to be able to play shows again soon.”

‘Bon Voyage’ is the first full-length record to emerge from the project since her self-titled November 2012 debut ‘Melody’s Echo Chamber’, which was produced by Tame Impala‘s Kevin Parker and released on Domino.

Having not released a new song since 2014’s one-off single ‘Shirim’, Melody’s Echo Chamber recently shared lead single, ‘Cross My Heart’, which is available to listen to now beneath.

The new album has been written, performed and produced primarily by Prochet, with contributions from musicians Fredrik Swahn (from the Amazing), Reine Fiske (Dungen), and Gustav Ejstes (Dungen).
