Jane Birkin


Out in November: Enfants d'Hiver, the new album by Jane Birkin. For the first time, she wrote all lyrics herself, and they're all in French. For the music, she turned to Hawksley Workman, Alain and Pierre Souchon, Alain Lanty and Bertrand Louis (among others). I've heard it a few times now, and it's a very genteel album. Beautiful, mostly acoustic music (few samples, inna triphop stylee), and Jane telling a story. Not a lot of actual singing, and not every song is a, erm, song. With chorusses and refrains and all. Serge's nowhere in sight, but remember: she's doing her Arabesque-album again in Paris, during the big Gainsbourg-expo.
