Vanessa Paradis: Love Songs
More details have emerged of the forthcoming Vanessa Paradis album Love Songs.
The singer, who has recently been seen in an advertising campaign for H&M, releases her new collection on May the 13th.
The first track Love Song has already been released as a single, reaching the top ten in France.
It's been six years since her last album Divinidylle, so the new release has certainly been long awaited by fans.
If you want to take a look back at Vanessa's career, there's an article I wrote on the Institut Français' Culturethèque website here >
The double album features 20 tracks, an extra two on the deluxe edition, and there are two duets, one with Benjamin Biolay - who produced the album - on the track Les roses roses, an another with former Libertine Carl Barât on The Dark, It Comes.
Biolay is one of the main songwriters, but there are also contributions from Mickaël Furnon, Mathieu Boogaerts, Adrien Gallo from BB Brunes and Ben Ricour. Paradis is involved in the wroting ofa number of songs, the track Doorway on her own, while Rocking Chair and Love Song are co-written with Biolay. Être celle is co-written with Marcel Kanche.
Meanwhile, the song New Year sees writing credits for Vanessa Paradis alongside ex-parter Johnny Depp and their daughter Lily Rose.
