A busy November ahead, a key month for music releases with significant releases kicking off from
Monday, with albums from Détroit and Shaka Ponk.
Later in the month there are releases from Zaz, David Guetta, Vanessa Paradis and Tal amongst many others.
Meanwhile, Johnny Hallyday releases his latest studio collection Rester Vivant on the 17th.
Hallyday takes to the stage in Paris for a series of shows with Jacques Dutronc and Eddy Mitchell.
Closer to home, the MTV European Music Awards event takes place in Glasgow, with David Guetta in the Best Electro Act category. Five acts competed for the Best French act local category, which was won by Indila whose Mini World album was a diamond seller and number one in France this year.
Live French music activity in the UK this month includes Pendentif, undertaking a short tour, Frànçois and the Atlas Mountains playing in London as part of Les InRocKs Philips Festival, a UK venture by the French magazine and Owlle also playing in London.
Acid Arab also DJ in London at the end of the month.
In short, plenty to keep us busy and lots of reasons to drop by regularly.
