Rest includes collaborations with Paul McCartney, Daft Punk’s Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, and others
Charlotte Gainsbourg has announced the long-awaited follow-up to her Beck-assisted 2010 album IRM (and the 2011 compilation Stage Whisper). Rest is out November 17 via Because Music. She’s also shared the title track, which was co-written and produced by Daft Punk’s Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo. Check out the song below, and scroll down to preview her self-directed music video. The album was produced by SebastiAn and features collaborations with Paul McCartney, Owen Pallett, Connan Mockasin, and others. Check out the tracklist and album artwork below.
Rest is the first Gainsbourg album where she wrote the lyrics herself. “In the shadow of my father, writing in French was something I never dared to do,” she said in a statement. Following the death of her sister, photographer Kate Barry, she said she decided to write an album about loss, public life, childhood fears, and more.
