Vanessa Paradis: Love Song
The track Love Song is a sophisticated slice of seriously funky electro and certainly a stylish return for the singer who has since the 80s been one of the iconic French music stars.
Her forthcoming album, her sixth studio collection, sees her collaborating with producer and composer Benjamin Biolay, along with musical input from Mathieu Boogaerts, Adrien Gallo and Carl Barât.
It's hard to believe listening to her new single that her most recent full studio album was her 2007 Divinidylle collection.
True, she's not exactly been idle in recent years, with a live album, an acoustic album and a very busy film career that amongst many highlights included her part in the animation Un monstre à Paris, which also saw the release of the song La Seine, one of the biggest selling singles of 2011 in France.
Listening to this new track she's obviously kept up with what's been happening in the world of music. Rather than taking things easy, she's taken up the challenge of releasing something with a freshness that artists half her age would be pleased with.
Her new album Love Songs, which is expected to be a double album, is released on May 13.
Vanessa Paradis is also reported to be touring in the Autumn.
