New Loane song

For the new movie by Michel Gondry. Awesome track:

Original version by France Gall:


Loane is back! And she brought a truckload of synths and beats. New single Rien de Commun has indeed nothing in common with the acoustic atmosphere on her debut. She’s in sync with Poney Express, who did almost the same thing. Loane got help from guys who worked with Air and Tahiti Boy, which makes sense when you hear the single. The album will be released on May 16, is called Le Lendemain and from what I heard contains some very strong songs. I’ve posted several duets Loane did (remember that beautiful INXS-cover?), I recently discovered she did a track with William Fitzsimmons, a bearded singer-songwriter who sounds like velvet but looks like a cult leader. Nice one.

Never thought I’d ever post an INXS track on this blog, let alone one with John Mayer on guitar. But when certified fragile fille Loane is singing… bring it on! Mystify, the track with Loane on vocals and Mayer on guitar, is on Original Sin. A new album by the Australian rockband that were left devastated when singer Michael Hutchence hung himself in 1997. Original Sin is an odd album, it features re-recorded old tracks with guestvocalists like Tricky, Nikka Costa, Ben Harper & Mylene Farmer (a partly French version of Never Tear Us Apart), Rob Thomas and a batch of unknown singers (unless you know who Dan Sultan or Deborah de Corral are).
These projects almost always turn out to be disastrous. I was an INXS-fan in the 90s (Listen Like Thieves is a classic rock album) and legacies like that are best left alone. But with Loane singing like she does… ooh lala.
