Zaz: Paris sera toujours Paris

A new single has been announced by Zaz, with a version of the song Paris sera toujours Paris.

The song was originally recorded by Maurice Chevalier in 1939, and comes ahead of her new album which features her covers of old songs that pay tribute to Paris.

The new album comes 18 months after the release of Recto verso, and both it and her self-titled debut have been massive sellers in France.   Recto verso has sold over  half a million copies since its release.

Songs like Je Veux and On Ira have established her as a major star with a likeable jazz-infused take on French chanson.

Other songs reported as being on the album alongside  Paris sera toujours Paris include Yves Montand's A Paris, Les Champs Elysées by Joe Dassin, Sous le Ciel de Paris by Edith Piaf and Paris Canaille by Léo Ferré.

Production duties for some of the songs on the new album fell to Quincy Jones, one of America's most legendary producers. His previous work includes the likes of Michael Jackson's Thriller.

The new single comes out on September 12, and the new album is released on November the tenth.
