Gaspard Royant: Making of new album clip

A mini documenatry about the making of the new album by Gaspard Royant, this blog's favourite exponent of the Haute Savoie Doo Wop Garage and Roll sound.

He talks about working with Scottish music legend Edwyn Collins who produced the album, and their shared love of Northern Soul. There's a mention of his mixing the collection in Helmsdale in Scotland. It's an appropriately stylishly shot short giving some flavour of what we can expect next month.

If there's any justice the link with Edwyn Collins will win him some much-deserved radio airplay and some media attention in the UK.

The new album, entitled Have You Met Gaspard Royant is released on April 8 and is available to pre-order in a variety of formats now, including CD and vinyl, with three tracks available immediately to download with every order.

He plays La Maroquinerie in Paris on April 11, and in Strasbourg on April 21, but before then has a show in London on March 25 at the Zoo Zoo club at the Blues Kitchen Camden.
