Moutet announces release of new EP after loss in Paris
Published Sep 29, 2020
It has been a busy week for Corentin Moutet. Only hours after losing in a marathon, six-hour bout against Italian Lorenzo Giustino in Paris, the Frenchman announced the release of his new EP, Ècorché.
The meaning "écorché" is "a figure drawn, painted, or sculpted showing the muscles of the body without skin" and is used for artisitic study.
Moutet will release the eight-track EP on October 2.
It's far from the first time that the 21-year-old has created original music. Two weeks ago, Moutet was featured on Denis Shapovalov's song "Drip", rapping a verse in French, his native language.
And all quarantine long Moutet was working hard on his music, which is mostly French rap, though he also plays piano.
On Monday, Moutet was part of the second-longest match in Roland Garros history, needing two days and ending just after midnight. Giustino, an Italian qualifier ranked No. 157, eventually won the dramatic bout, 0-6, 7-6 (7), 7-6 (3), 2-6, 18-16.
Roland Garros is the only remaining Grand Slam to have no fifth-set tiebreak, theoretically allowing matches to carry on endlessly.
