Thomas Dutronc: Le blues du rose

A new clip for the track Le blues du rose by Thomas Dutronc, ahead of the release of a much-anticipated
various artists collection due out next month.

The track comes from the Le Soldat Rose 2 collection, an album that sees songs written by Pierre-Dominique Burgaud interpreted by a variety of French artists.

Le Soldat Rose was originally a children's story by Burgaud and Louis Chedid and illustrated by Cyril  Houplain, the visual designer for -M-.

The first collection of songs came out in 2006, featuring the likes of Matthieu Chedid, Catherine Jacob, Vanessa Paradis, Bénabar and Alain Souchon.

It went on to become a musical in 2008, staged at the Casino de Paris with a new group of artists and later touring France, Switzerland and Belgium.

The show was such a success that it is still being shown on stage, and is currently at the Theatre de la port saint-martin in Paris.

The new collection of songs features new artists too, with Thomas Dutronc joined by the likes of Nolwenn Leroy and Tété.

The new album is due out on November 11.
