Amanda Lear Announces French Standards Album ‘Tuberose’, Releases Barbara Cover ‘Le Bel Âge’

Amanda Lear has always made a name for herself as a versatile performer, delving between disco and dance music and classic standards. Her latest album Tuberose is one that opts for the latter with Amanda providing her predominantly French renditions of tracks by the likes of Serge Gainsbourg and Barbara.

Amanda gave us a taster of the album previously with single More which was released alongside an array of remixes to keep her dancefloor-filling fans satisfied. The mysterious performer now follows this with Le Bel Âge – a track originally written and performed by Barbara – a moody romantic single which sees Amanda’s elusive vocals paired with sparse piano and guitar production.

Tuberose is due on October 22nd through label Boomlover. The album is described as: “Amanda Lear presents her first unreleased text album titled ‘Tuberose’. Essentially performed in French with a mixture of acoustics and pop, she has chosen to use titles from authors and performers as diverse as S. Gainsbourg, Barbara, J. Dutronc, Julien Doré, Miossec, G. Moustaki, Dominique A and Alain Bashung. Tuberose ‘is the album that finally consecrates Amanda Lear as a full-fledged French performer.”

The album will include three English language tracks: More, I Wish You Love and Have I Stayed Too Long At The Fair.
