So, not only the new Olivia Ruiz album in April, and by AnnaO, but also Melanie Pain. For the uninitiated: the gorgeous singer from Nouvelle Vague. Ok, well, they're ALL gorgeous, but you'll recognise her. First single Helsinki, a duet with Julien Doré, is out now. On My Name (that's the albumtitle) Melanie sings in English and French. What I've heard so far (thanks Alex), this promises to be a brilliant album. Mel's a sweet and tender hooligan, and she proves it.
