Product Description

Charlotte Gainsbourg releases her fourth studio album, Rest, a stunning eleven track collection produced by SebastiAn (Frank Ocean, Kavinsky), except the title track which was composed and co-written by Daft Punk's Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, and "Songbird in a Cage," composed and written by Paul McCartney. Rest also features collaborations with Owen Pallett, NZ's own Connan Mockasin, and others. SebastiAn's background in electronic music accorded with Gainsbourg's desire for a sound with a disquieting, mechanistic edge, inspired by Giorgio Moroder and, perhaps unsurprisingly for a revered, award-winning film actress, movie soundtracks.

Lead single "Rest" is a poignant, modern lullaby-like song, steering Gainsbourg toward a forensically focused approach to lyric writing. "Those were the first words that I actually sang on the album," she explains. "I came in with all my bunches of lyrics...It was too much, really, and Guy-Man was saying, ‘you can't say all that, you have to simplify it,' and he reduced it to three words! It felt so innocent in a way, but it was exactly what I needed at that time." Rest marks Gainsbourg's achievement of the lyrical confidence to get unprecedentedly candid, and to trust her own words' ability to communicate universal pains of loss through personal ones. Pressed on double LP with bonus CD version of the album.
