With a beautiful and alluring voice, Italian-born French supermodel Carla Bruni has seduced the world with her intimate love songs. She is touring in support of her new album, French Touch, a collection of adaptations of well-known songs by Depeche Mode, AC/DC, Willie Nelson, The Clash, and more.
In addition to being the wife of former French president Nicolas Sarkozy, Carla Bruni has been a pop star in France for 20 years. On French Touch, singing in English, she brings her trademark smoky, breathy vocals to an impeccable range of covers from well-worn standards (“Moon River,” “Stand By Your Man”) to personal favorites (Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy the Silence”). Bruni brings a hint of mischief to Mick Jagger’s “Miss You” and a sultry, playful take on AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell.”
Carla Bruni hasn’t just been making music throughout her colorful and singular life; she’s also been a fan. The singer-songwriter has assembled a trove of all-time sentimental favorites-pop songs forever associated with a person or place or moment in time, the sort of records that she says, borrowing the French term for love at first sight, “have been a coup de foudre.”
Bruni, for her part, imagines the record being played “in the car when you go somewhere with someone you like, or a quiet evening, or maybe on a Sunday morning. It’s made for being in a warm, cozy place with someone sweet, some sweet moments. That’s my dream, you know? That people would listen to my music when they’re relaxing and in love.”
Carla Bruni has been 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 three 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’etait (As If Nothing Happened), and 2013’s Little French Songs.
