A few months ago, I reported that Charlotte Gainsbourg‘s new double live LP Stage Whispers would be released on 8 November. Guess what? I was wrong either because Pitchfork reported it incorrectly at the time or, more likely, her label pushed the release back. In any event, it turns out that release date is actually DECEMBER 13th in the U.S. You can pre-order Stage Whispers from Amazon here.
On December 13 (December 5 in France), Because Music/Elektra will release Stage Whispers, a double-LP of live and unreleased material from Charlotte Gainsbourg that follows up October’s Terrible Angels teaser EP. We’ve already heard “White Telephone”; below, stream another song from the collection, “Paradisco”. The song was written and produced by Beck, and features drum programming from ex-Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti/current the Samps member Cole M.G.N. If you’re looking for more Gainsbourg, there are two more Stage Whispers tracks, “Set Yourself on Fire” and “Out of Touch”, available for listening over at Air France’s Facebook (that’s Air France the airline, not the band).
