Léa Deleau: Les accidents d'amour

A new version of the France Gall song Les accidents d'amour, interpreted by Léa Deleau ahead of a
new musical based on the music that featured in Gall's career.

The track originally featured on Gall's 1981 Tout pour la musique album, and was written by Michel Berger, Gall's late husband.

The new version comes from the stage musical Résiste, a show based around the music of France Gall and Michel Berger.

Berger, as well as being married to Gall, was a hugely successful singer songwriter in his own right, who had a successful solo career and wrote work for acts including Johnny Hallyday. He also co-wrote the rock musical Starmania, a huge success in late 70s France.

Gall has been one of France's most successful female singers, but has been absent since the late 90s. She has  been working on the new show for three years, Les accidents d'amour following a new version of the title track of the show, a which also featured originally on  Tout pour la musique.

The curtain rises on Résiste on November 4 at the Palais des Sports de Paris, before a tour round France.

Résiste is released as an album on October 23.
