Charlotte Gainsbourg Shares Title-Track From Upcoming Album 'Rest'

Monday 11th September, 2017 1:15PM

Charlotte Gainsbourg has revealed details of her upcoming fourth studio album and unveiled the eponymous tune 'Rest'. The song was composed and co-written by Daft Punk’s Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, who helped steer Charlotte towards a delicate approach to songwriting - this album marking the first time the singer has penned her own lyrics. In a statement she said of 'Rest':

“Those were the first words that I actually sang on the album ... I came in with all my bunches of lyrics… It was too much, really, and Guy-Man was saying, ‘you can’t say all that, you have to simplify it,’ and he reduced it to three words! It felt so innocent in a way, but it was exactly what I needed at that time.”

Take a listen below...


Production for the 11-song record was for the most part undertaken by SebastiAn (Frank Ocean, Kavinsky), except ‘Rest' and ‘Songbird in a Cage', the latter of which was composed and written by Paul McCartney. The album also features collaborations with Owen Pallett and Connan Mockasin among others.


The full record is out 17th November via Because Music/Atlantic Records
