Another number one single, the latest in a very long list, for Mylène Farmer with the song City of Love reaching the top of the charts this week following its physical release.
The song features on Farmer's most recent album Interstellaires, her tenth, released in November last year. It follows the track Stolen Car, a duet with Sting, which was the first single released from the album.
The two tarck CD release of the song features the original version of the track from the album, as well as a remix featuring Shaggy, while the 12 inch features an instrumental as well as the originak take.
The song was produced by Martin Kierszenbaum, a seriously big player in the US music scene, and boss of the record label that Farmer is signed to in America.
Hopefully she'll continue to make an impression on the North American market, although given the levels of success she's enjoyed of the years it'll hardly make or break hear career,
It's Mylène's fifteenth number one since 1988, including a duet with Sting and another with Moby. No small achievement for any artist.
A video for City of Love emerged at the end of last year, a clip with a very different flavour to its predecessor, but very much in the tradition of high-concept videos that Mylène has pioneered since the start of her career.
