Carla Bruni has been writing and performing music since 1997, with her first album, "Quelqu’un m’a dit" ("Someone Told Me"), being released in 2002. Since then she has had 3 more critically acclaimed releases, selling over 3 million albums 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".
Produced by legendary musician, producer and composer David Foster, French Touch will be released on October 6th via Verve Records / Barclay / Universal Music Group.
"French Touch" brings together a delightful trove of sentimental pop favorites; all reimagined in Carla’s intimate and moving acoustic style and chosen for their personal significance – in her own words, songs that inspire the French term for love at first sight – "a coup de foudre."
"French Touch" is warm and familiar, and inimitably Carla. Richly melodic, warm yet minimal, and often slyly playful - all the arrangements in this collection have been given that "French touch", and still have all the universal appeal as their originals, albeit with a sultry flavor all their own.
