Carla Bruni has unveiled some of the details of her upcoming self-titled studio album which is due for release this October 9th. The former French First Lady and singer most recently released English language cover album French Touch in 2017, but returns to her native language for her new collection.
The self-titled album has been preceded by tracks Quelque chose, Un grand amour, and Le petit guépard – all of which are available to stream now. The album’s press release notes: “Always sensitive, sometimes on edge, the little music of the 13 tracks that compose it – 14 on vinyl and 17 on its collector’s edition – affirms a temperament, avoids ostentation.” The released tracks showcase Carla’s gentle tones against gorgeous melodic multi-instrumental arrangements.
Whilst an official tracklist is yet to be announced, the album will feature at least one track in English: “Mainly written in French, the album features a song in English and another in Italian, a duet performed with actress Valeria Bruni Tedeschi, sister of the singer. The compositions are by Carla Bruni, Michel Amsellem, Jeremy Reynolds and Calogero.”
The album is available to pre-order in numerous formats: a vinyl featuring a signed lithograph, a deluxe fourteen track CD, a standard thirteen track CD, and digitally of course. Details and pre-order links are available here.
