Charlotte Gainsbourg has been a favorite of mine since I discovered her album IRM which came out in 2009. Her latest three albums, which were released beginning in 2006, are definitely her best. Her first album came out in 1986, and I think it’s something everyone kind of wants to forget … if they ever heard of it at all.
The 40-year-old mother of three was born to an English actress-mother and a French singer-songwriter-actor-director father. Her creative quirkiness definitely runs in the family.
This song comes from her latest album which was released on December 5th and includes eight new songs and ten live recordings of previously-released songs.
Charlotte Gainsbourg is kick-ass. I love her sound. I love her Frenchness. I love this song. This music video is so random and wonderful with its paranoia and body-double back-up dancers doing awkward dance moves. How could it not be awesome?
