A new track and accompanying video marking the return of Coeur de Pirate ahead of an album that marks the tenth anniversary of her career.
Since then she's spoken about the possibility of stopping making music, finishing her career and her wish to return to anonymity.
Recent months have seen something of a change of heart though, as since November she's appeared as one of the judges on Nouvelle Star on France's M6 channel.
The high-profile reality show is the French version of Pop Idol, and its 13th series on French TV saw Coeur de Pirate alongside Benjamin Biolay and music industry figures Nathalie Noennec and Dany Synthé.
The show came to its conclusion with the victory of Xavier Matheu in a public vote on December 20.
Her new album, her fourth proper colletion, is expected in the spring. She's confirmed a live date at the Olympia in Paris on October 9.
