French pop and film star Charlotte Gainsbourg on Friday returned to music with a dreamy electronic track co-written by one-half of Daft Punk.
The song is vaguely reminiscent of “Instant Crush” featuring Julian Casablancas from the duo’s last complete album, Random Access Memories.
“Up to me to deliver my personality in either the archive footage I was choosing or the new images I filmed”.
“With this first directorial step, I created a repetitive language via a musical loop”. “Those were the first words that I actually sang on the album”, she explains. “Ensuing different music videos for quite a few of my album’s songs”.
The daughter of legendary chanteur Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin, Charlotte Gainsbourg returns to her distinctively breathy, coquettish voice as she recites the rhyming chorus in French that translates as: “Please stay with me / Do not let me forget you”.
However, following the death of her sister, fashion photographer Kate Berry, she found that it was easier for her to “express certain things” in French while she grappled with her loss. Following the death of her sister, photographer Kate Barry, she said she made a decision to write an album about loss, public life, childhood fears, and more.
Rest Tracklist: 01. Ring-a-Ring O’ Roses 02.
“It’s the first time that I’ve surrendered myself, and the end result belongs to me”, Gainsbourg said.
