Carla Bruni: Chez Keith et Anita.
A new single by Carla Bruni, as the former first lady makes her return to music with the song Chez Keith et Anita.
With her husband out of office she's probably got a bit more time on her hands and can
The song comes from her forthcoming fourth album entitled Little French Songs and it comes five years after he last release Comme si de rien n'était.
While her day job as first lady kept her busy, she still had time for the occasional release, with her last album coming out during her husband's time in office. Whatever people's views were about her husband didn't stop it reaching number one in the French charts. It was also a critical success, many noting that the songs were mostly her own work, with two cover versions and another song adapting the work of Michel Houellebecq.
Bruni's changed her record label, moving from Naive records to a branch of Universal Music, which suggests the album will be given a much higher international profile than her previous company could have done.
Reports suggest that she's keen to see the release as a continuation of her career as a musician rather than a comeback following her involvement in the world of politics, and the new song certainly sounds like a natural progression on her previous work.
Her new album is released on Barclay records on April the first, and there is a possibility that she'll tour later in the year.
