 Vanessa Paradis : Love Songs

chanson d'amour

Cracking new tune from Vanessa Paradis' new LP Love Songs, this, the title track, half sung in English and half in French and written with the French pop star Benjamin Biolay. Vanessa's last LP was some 6 years ago, the absolutely brilliant Divinidylle, which is one of my favourite albums ever. So I couldn't believe my luck when I spotted this in a gas station while driving through France last month. This quickly became the soundtrack to my journey.

The title Love Songs indicates it could be full of ballads, but while there are a few I happy to say there are upbeat numbers too. Vanessa's ear for a infectious pop hook is in tact and songs like the title track, Les Espaces et les Sentiments, Mi Amor and Tu vois c'que j'vois are confirmation of that. A duet with Carl Barât on The Dark, It Comes is funny little tune about betrayal. Sombreros is a slow sumptuous summertime jam with a ska beat, skanking horns and soaring organs that Serge Gainsbourg would be proud of. The stripped back La Crème is enchanting as is most of this LP. Highly Recommened. Officially released in the UK this week, quick get it now before the sun packs up for winter.
