This new collection of French songs (plus one in English, one in Italian and two covers – one of which is in Spanish) will be Carla Bruni’s first set of original music to be released in seven years. The album finds the artist wholeheartedly embracing her true self. Always sensitive, with emotions on the surface at times, the music on this album bears witness to a unique temperament and avoids ostentation. Listeners can sense a desire for a calm simplicity and serenity. Full track listing can be found below.
The majority of the project was written by Bruni, and the production of these songs was planned long before anyone set foot in the recording studio. Guitar, piano, a bit of foot-tapping and fragments of melody are the foundation of all the tracks, recorded behind closed doors with Albin de la Simone (Vanessa Paradis, Pomme, Alain Souchon, Pierre Lapointe), who produced and recorded the entire album in just six days with a small team of musicians. For his first collaboration with Carla Bruni, the multi-instrumentalist – one of the very best on the French scene in the past 20 years – was determined to give her new songs the most delicate treatment.
The album is warm and familiar and inimitably Carla. More music and information on Carla Bruni’s forthcoming release to be announced soon.
