Thomas Dutronc: Sac Ado
A new single, Sac Ado by Thomas Dutronc.
It's another track from his Silence on tourne, on tourne en rond album that came out in France in October last year.
The album, his second, sees Dutronc further establish himself as an artist. Despite a surname that should be familiar to anyone with a passing knowledge of French music, he's become a voice in his own right, with his own style.
The track remains nods to his manouche style, but is principally a great contemporary pop song.
It has the kind of qualities I love about the best French music, a great tune and clever lyrics. It's a playful and intelligent song with an effortless quality that only comes from an artist that really knows his craft.
Hopefully it won't be long until we hear some new material from M. Dutronc (fils.)
