If you’ve obsessed on Charlotte Gainsbourg‘s career as have we, you’d surely hardly ever be surprised to find her conceptualizing in the most exquisite and rarefied of ways.
And indeed, her brilliant 2017 album Rest (NPR called it “a testament to the power of immaculate, effortless-sounding pop songcraft” – and her synth poppy single “Such a Remarkable Day” was one of BlackBook‘s 2018 faves) will be getting a beautiful, contemplative and very limited edition companion book, released this March 25 via Classsic and Because Music. The evocative volume will stylishly, viscerally recount her time spent recording the album in Paris, London and New York, telling the story through Charlotte’s handwritten notes, drawings, lyrics and her own photographs. Only 100 copies will be printed, so bragging rights will be not insignificant.
The ethereal songstress will also be doing several live dates in April, including a pair of appearances at this year’s Coachella.
