If it feels like years since Charlotte Gainsbourg has released an album, it has been. But that's now about to change with her new guest-loaded LP Rest.
Marking Gainsbourg's fourth solo album and first since 2011's Stage Whisper, Rest will arrive on November 17 via Because Music/Warner. The album was produced by SebastiAn (Frank Ocean, Kavinsky) and features a seriously stacked list of guests. Among the collaborators are Daft Punk's Guy-Manuel de-Homem-Christo, Paul McCartney, Owen Pallett and Connan Mockasin.
"It's the first time that I've surrendered myself, and the end result belongs to me," Gainsbourg said in a statement.
On Apple Music, you can check out the video for the title track over here, as well as watch a preview below. The track was co-written with Guy-Manuel de-Homem-Christo.
Gainsbourg said of the song: "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."
