Zazie: Speed

A new video for the track Speed by Zazie, a song from her forthcoming new album.

She's been a big star in France since her 1995 Zen album, her most recent - 2015's Encore Heureux - reaching the top five in France.

Recently she's been had a high profile in France due to her role since 2015 as one of the coaches on The Voice: La Plus Belle Voix, the French edition of the reality TV show. One of her team, Maelle Pistoia, was the winner of this year's season of the show . It was the second time one of her acts won the competition.

Speed features on her forthcoming album Essenciel - her tenth - which is due to be released on September 7.  That;s not a typo, incidentally. Wordplay, puns and changing the meaning of words by altering their context or spelling have always been a thing for Zazie all through her career.

The track emerged in May, but a video didn't come out until recently. There's maybe  something of Christine and the Queens in the choreography, which isn't a bad thing by any measure.
