|New York, NY – October 23, 2020 – Internationally renowned singer-songwriter and fashion icon, Carla Bruni recently released her self-titled 6th studio album via Verve Records / Universal Music Group, and today she surprised fans with a new studio video for “Un ange” (an angel) a prophetic and uplifting song about the existence of angels who may suddenly appear but cannot be held forever. PRESS HERE to check it out, and HERE to watch the video for the album’s sultry lead single “Rien que l’extase.” More visuals for previously released singles can be found here: “quelque chose,” “un grand amour” and “le petit guépard.”
The collection of French songs (plus one in English, one in Italian and one of which is in Spanish) is Carla Bruni’s first set of original music to be released in seven years. The album finds the artist wholeheartedly embracing her true self. Always sensitive, with emotions on the surface at times, the music on this album bears witness to a unique temperament and avoids ostentation. Listeners can sense a desire for a calm simplicity and serenity.
Carla Bruni wrote the majority of these songs herself, and the production of these was planned long before anyone set foot in the recording studio. Guitar, piano, a bit of foot-tapping and fragments of melody are the foundation of all the tracks, recorded behind closed doors with Albin de la Simone (Vanessa Paradis, Pomme, Alain Souchon, Pierre Lapointe), who produced and recorded the entire album in just six days with a small team of musicians. For his first collaboration with Carla Bruni, the multi-instrumentalist – one of the very best on the French scene in the past 20 years – was determined to give her new songs the most delicate treatment. The album is warm and familiar and inimitably Carla.
Carla Bruni has been writing and performing music since 1997 and her debut album, Quelqu’un M’a Dit (Someone Told Me) was released in 2002. Her critically acclaimed albums have sold over three million units worldwide, including 2007’s, No Promises, which set English poems to music, 2008’s Comme si de rien n’était (As If Nothing Happened), and 2013’s Little French Songs. Her 2017 album, French Touch, produced by legendary musician, producer, and composer David Foster, is a delightful trove of sentimental pop favorites chosen for their personal significance and reimagined in Carla’s intimate and moving acoustic style to inspire “a coup de foundre” – love at first sight. The album earned platinum status abroad and gold in France. Carla and her work have been widely acclaimed by international media (Today Show, NY Times, Sunday Times, BBC Breakfast, NPR, Vogue and more), and Carla Bruni has performed worldwide.
