New CD Releases For January!


Kendji Girac

Kendji Girac, winner of France’s 3rd season of “The Voice”, has released his first self-titled album, and it’s already a hit! His songs, mixing his Roma heritage with danceable pop, appeal to a wide audience. The 13 tracks – including his cover of Maître Gims’s “Bella” that brought him internet fame even before the show’s premiere – helped to propel the album to the top spot on iTunes France’s sales charts in only a few hours.

CharlElie Couture -- ImMortel

A new album, featuring entirely new works, written and composed by CharlEllie Couture. With this new album, he returns to his old passions. L’amour au fond, the first track, is both catchy and poetic, guaranteed to leave no one unmoved. Expect all the tenderness one is accustomed to from CharlElie’s lyrics, all beautifully orchestrated by Benjamin Biolay.

ZAZ -- Paris

Success came as a surprise even to ZAZ herself with her first album, featuring the groovy hit Je veux, which became internationally known. Trained in jazz, the relative newcomer made waves with her spontaneity mixed with a hint of innocence. Today, amidst the vast field of French pop, she manages to fit in while still preserving what makes her unique. This third album, comprised exclusively of covers dedicated to the city of Paris, allows her to take a pleasurable musical detour.

Patrick Bruel -- Greatest Hits

This Greatest Hits package from Sony offers up 16 of his best-known songs, along with a handful of live recordings. Covering hits from the late '80s like the ballad "Casser La Voix" all the way to 2012's jangling pop single "She's Gone," this disc covers plenty of essentials and offers a nice range of his various styles from straight-ahead rock and pop to chansons and dance band songs.
