Last week, I published here the new video clip that Anaïs released to promote her new record. Today, I found the making of with Anaïs talking a little about the idea of dressing up as Tina Turner and Mistinguett and André Manoukian talking about his part in the (funny) video. Anaïs – Danseuse Privée

Great news this Monday. The new Anaïs single is available on iTunes Store (only in Europe, as far as I know) and the great website Filles Sourires posted a player with the new song. And I have just read on Emily Loizeau’s fan page that she is in studio for the recordings of her new record. I don’t have any other information regarding to release date or name yet, but I’ll post it as soon as I find out. While we wait for her new record, how about remembering one of the songs from her last album?

After over 3 years since her last record, the funny and controversial French singer Anaïs finally announced the arrival of her third album. Her official website haven’t published the details yet, but, as far as I know, the record will be called A l’eau de Javel and will be all about covers of French classics from the 30’s to the 60’s. Sounds promising, huh? The singer has already announced that she will start touring in March and she has a date in Paris on May, 9. The tickets are available  and they cost between 30 and 38 euros.

Loheem is one of those girls you just fall in love with after watching her video of the song Colorfield. She hasn’t released an album yet, but there’s a bunch of songs you can listen in her BandCamp profile. I’m hoping to learn more about her very soon and write a longer review/post. Meanwhile, I wish you all a good week and a little bit of sunshine (specially for those who are facing the deep winter) by recommending her most popular single. Have a nice week!

Olivia Ruiz posted today on her Facebook page a teaser for the release of her awaited record with covers of para standard do jazz. The same one I announced here last week. The video has the ever so cute face of Louis Armstrong being dubbed in French and saying good things about Olivia Ruiz. Check it out.

The dearest, sweet adorable French singer Berry announced a new record. The work, still without a name, will be released in March, 2012. However, last week, Berry released a single of the new album, so we could have a taste of what waits for us next year. The name of the song is Si c’est la vie, and it sounds like Berry’s next CD will sound as good as the first one.

Benjamin Biolay announced his first Best of, to be released on November 27.  The record marks the ten years of his career and I personally think it’s too early for a Best of (because, after all, they all sound a bit desperate, specially when released in Christmas time). The record has songs from Rose Kennedy to La Superbe and it even has an unreleased song, called L’eau claire des fontaines. Below, there’s the track list indicating from which CD the song comes from. Without any surprise, I noticed that the phase with Clara Mastroianni represents only 15% of the Best…

Benjamin Biolay released last Monday his first Best of and, because of that he was invited to a talk at the Fnac Ternes, in Paris. During the last summer, I was lucky enough to see John Lasseter in one of this events promoted by Fnac and because of that experience I knew that I should arrive really early to guarantee my seat in the front roll. So I left home 3 hours before the begining of the event and I arrived at Fnac aroud 4p.m. By the time I arrived, there was only one woman seating on the front roll…

Gilbert Bécaud was and incredibly important figure in the history of French chanson. His nickname Monsieur 100 000 volts was due to his electric presence on stage – specially in his favorite venue: the Olympia, in Paris – the singer remained popular for 50 years and was responsible for great immortal songs that were know worldwide. Bécaud had some of his songs translated into English and was recorded by people from the first rank, like t Frank Sinatra, Nina Simone, Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Elvis Presley, Neil Diamond, Sonny and Cher, and James Brown. Not bad, right? His most famous…
