Alain Souchon and Laurent Voulzy: La baie des fourmis

A new single by  Alain Souchon and Laurent Voulzy, with the track La baie des fourmis being
promoted from their self-titled  collaborative album.

The album has been a massive success since its release in December last year.  The pair have found that there's still a massive market for their brand of easy listening chanson in France.

Their album went to number one in France, and went on to win a Victoires de la musique award earlier this year for the best chanson/variety album of the year.

They've released two singles from the album so far, Derrière les mots and Oiseau malin.

The album is the first time the two artists write and perform together, Souchon having enjoyed a career as a hugely successful solo artist since the 70s, Voulzy with a career that spans a similar era and his La Septième Vague album reaching number one in 2006.

 They've collaborated before, but until the released of the album it just songwriting rather than performing together as well.

 Souchon and Voulzy are in the middle of a tour, with shows at arenas across France including four nights at the Zénith in Paris in December
