Julien Doré: La Javanaise

A new clip from Julien Doré, with a memorable Japanese language cover of the Serge Gainsbourg song La Javanaise.

The release comes ahead of some Japanese dates from Julien Doré, whose album entitled "&" was one of last year's most interesting releases, as well as a significant commercial success.

Gainsbourg's song was one of his early successes, originally written for Juliette Greco and released in 1963 by both Greco and Gainsbourg.

In the years since it's also been covered by Jane Birkin and Iggy Pop, while Mick Harvey recorded an English language versions.

Julien Doré has an extensive tour across France from the end of February, with dates at the Zénith arenas around the country starting with a show in Amiens on the 23rd. He plays in Paris on May 10 and 11.
