The newest Bénabar single is already available on Youtube. “Politiquement correct” is a track from the singer’s new record, “Les Bénéfices du Doute”, that will be released on December 5th. The single is already available for purchase on the French iTunes store for $1,29. A couple months ago, Bénabar had released on his official website a extract of this song, and I have to say: it didn’t get me too excited. But now that I’ve heard the whole song and saw the lyrics, I think I’m starting to take a like to it. In case anybody is wondering, “Mais moi,…

The singer Zaz, that was a big hit in France in the past year and was invited to every important festival in France last summer has just announced a live record Sans tsu tsou, on the next 5th December. Apart from the CD, the singer is also releasing a live DVD. To promote the live record, she just released a single of the song Eblouie Par La Nuit (which is the last song from her debut album) and a video clip with the song, that was written by fellow singer Raphaël.

As I had already posted here, singer/songwriter  Alain Souchon, released a new record last Monday, dedicated to children. And while I was reading the news at Le Monde last weekend, I found an exclusive preview of this new album. Entitles À cause d’elles, the record is full of songs that Souchon used to sing as a kid and it also features a new song written by him and his son (it’s the same one on the previous post about this record).  Wanna have a preview?

Singer/songwriter Alain Souchon announced that his new record, that it’s going to be dedicated to children, will be available on November 22. The great Le Figaro website published, on the last Friday, an article talking about Souchon’s new album and posted a video with one of it’s tracks. The CD will be called À cause d’elles and the track below has a choir of young boys. I liked it.

Coeur de Pirate released last week her long waited second record. And I’m already in love with it. I believe It’s hard for a singer/songwriter who had a very successful first record to release a second one. But, in this case, this young talented québécoise did it again. The new work is called Blonde and I think I like it even better then her debut album. In case you are interested, the songs are on sale at the online store in the singer’s website. It can also be heard on Youtube, if you feel like having a taste of it.…

For Serge Gainsbourg fans, prepare yourselves to spend a small fortune on the 40th deluxe anniversary edition of his classic record “Histoire de Melody Nelson”. The release date is set to November 15 and you can pre-order it on Amazon for the price of US$ 172.48. Speaking of Gainsbourg, I promised here on the blog to publish my list of top 10 favorite songs, so here it is:1. Je suis venu te dire que je m’en vais2. La Javanaise3. Elisa4. Marilou sous la neige5. Le poinçonneur de Lilás6. L’eau à la bouche7. L’anamour8. Ces petits riens9. S.S. in Uruguay10. 69…

Yesterday, Le Figaro published an article on the new generation of French singers pointing out the fact that, in 2011, the girls outshone the boys when it comes to French chanson. I couldn’t agree more. Out of all my favorite French male singers, only Thomas Dutronc released a new record this year and I wouldn’t call it exactly to-die-for. Vincent Delerm is in the business of making children’s music; Bénabar is not really getting me excited about his new album; Bensé doesn’t even updates the News section of his website since January 2010 and Dominique A has just announced he’s…

Coincidentally, I just found out that Canadian Coeur de Pirate is making a tour in the US. You don’t know why is this a coincidence? Click here to find out. A complete list of tour dates and venues (some of them in Europe) can be seeing in this link. Her long waited second record “Blonde” is going to be released on November 7th, and you can already take a peek clicking on the player below.

Vincent Liben is one of the new talents to watch on French music. He is Belgium and released his debut record in August this year. I haven’t heard it yet, but I’m super excited about a duet he released in March with beautiful French singer Berry. To promote the song, they released a very sweet video clip of the song on Youtube: After digging up some more information about Liben, I found his SoundCloud page (I just love soundcloud!) and here’s one of the songs released in his first album: La Condition De L’Allumette by vincent liben
