Yey! I’ve just discovered a new French singer (I love when that happens). Her name is Joko and I stumbled upon her Youtube Channel completely by accident and I found there two very cute songs (that are copied below). The songs in her latest EP did not convince me that much, but I’m certainly keeping an eye on Joko. One last thing: if you happen to be in Paris in September, she will be performing at the cool Café de la Danse. If you LOVED her, check out her official music video here.

Mika released last Friday his second third album, called The Origin of Love, and the CD is filled with songs in French! The fact that Mika is singing a lot in French is not surprising, since he is a big hit in Paris and he speaks fluent French (he’s lebanese, after all). The double CD has four songs in French and my favorite, so far, is Karen. Last year, his single Elle me dit was in all the posters in the subway in Paris, but the song did not get me very excited, even after I watched the music video and it was starred…

I love when talented people decide to record a good cover of Serge Gainsbourg’s songs, and even wrote a post about the subject a while ago. Bonnie and Clyde has never been among my favorites Gainsbourg’s, until last week. The duo Freedom Fry – formed by a French girl and an American guy – released a great version of Bonnie and Clyde in their last EP, called Outlaw, and I loved it! Check it out. And, below, the original:

Remember when I wrote about Iggy Pop’s new record, the one that’s full of classics of the French chanson? So, that record is finally out! It’s called Après and is available for sales at the website Vente Privé and also at the iTunes Store for the price of US$ 9,90. Independently produced, the record will only be available in the digital format for now, but there are plans of releasing an old-fashioned CD afterwards. Iggy explained today in an article published at Le Monde that the reason he went independent this time was: “Les maisons de disque n’ont jamais fait autre chose que m’humilier, me tourmenter et me démoraliser.”  Good…

It’s not really news that Iggy Pop had already been flirting with the good old French chanson, but today I read some surprising piece of news: the Huffington Post announced that the former leader of the Stooges is releasing a new record with covers of French classics, singing songs by some of the greatest: like Henri Salvador, Georges Brassens, Serge Gainsbourg, Édith Piaf and Joe Dassin.If you want a taste of the record, you can click on the links below to listen to the first minute of each song.» Et si tu n’existais pas (Joe Dassin)» La Javanaise (Serge Gainsbourg)…

Yay! Berry, one of my favorites from the nouvelle scène française, gave us a little present today. Her new record, to be released on April 23, is entirely online, available to listen in streaming. How awesome is that? I just love when artists (and the labels) make decisions like this. It kind of gives me a feeling that they understand a little something about the world today. If you’re ready to listen, simple choose one of the two options given below (connect with Facebook or give your email address) and you’re ready to go! If that doesn’t work, the original…

Everyone knows that the beautiful and talented singer Berry is releasing a new record. After putting on her website a video with scenes of the recordings of Si c’est la vie, the first single of her very awaited second record, she now gave us another taste of what’s yet to come. For those who will be lucky enough to be in Paris in June, Berry is scheduled to play in the 12th and 13th. The tickets are already available for sale and they cost 25 euros.
