“[‘Such A Remarkable Day’ is] a master class in synth pop, with Gainsbourg’s voice weaving in and out of SebastiAn’s blustery rhythms as the music drives relentlessly forward.” – SPIN
Charlotte Gainsbourg has returned with her new song ‘Such A Remarkable Day’, via Because Music / Caroline Australia. Written by Gainsbourg and SebastiAn, the song is the first to be taken from her new‘Take 2’ EP, which will be released this Friday, 14th December. ‘Take 2’ features three new songs and two live tracks, including a version of Kanye West‘s ‘Runaway’, and features the same musicians as her touring band.
Watch the official ‘live’ video for ‘Such A Remarkable Day’ below.
Produced by SebastiAn (Frank Ocean, Kavinsky) and mixed by Tom Elmhirst (Adele, Lorde, David Bowie), Gainsbourg’s last studio album ‘Rest’ was released in late 2017 and was her first in seven years. The album featured in Pitchfork’s Best New Music poll and was described as “gorgeous and assured” byNPR, while New York Times observed “Rest is an album that comes directly from her heart.”
The eleven songs on ‘Rest’ are nothing if not sure-footed, proffering a compelling fusion of gleaming, string-emblazoned modern electro-pop and cinematically textured avant-chanson—their magical music box melodies kissed by bruised, introspective, occasionally disquieting lyrics.
