CARLA BRUNI ANNOUNCES FIRST UK CONCERT
Tickets on general sale Friday October 6th at 9am here.
As she prepares to release her fifth studio album ‘French Touch’ on October 6th, internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter Carla Bruni announces her first UK concert. Having last toured in 2013 Carla is looking forward to returning to the stage, with her band, to perform songs from ‘French Touch’ and her previous four albums.
“My last tour was a few years ago and I didn’t come to the UK so I am so excited to finally play here. I have always dreamed of playing in London, a city that I love. It really will be a dream come true.”
Carla Bruni has been writing and performing music since 1997, with her first album, ‘Quelqu’un m’a dit (Someone Told Me)’, being released in 2002. Since then she has had 3 more critically acclaimed releases, selling over 3 million albums worldwide, including 2007’s, ‘No Promises’, which set English poems to music, 2008’s ‘Comme si de rien n’était (As If Nothing Happened)’, and 2013’s ‘Little French Songs’.
An “elegant collection of songs to fall in love to” (Mojo) ‘French Touch’ looks set to follow its predecessors with Uncut Magazine calling it “chic sophistication” and Record Collector declaring “it will leave you breathless”.
Produced by legendary musician, producer and composer David Foster, ‘French Touch’ brings together a delightful trove of sentimental pop favourites; all reimagined in Carla’s intimate and moving acoustic style and chosen for their personal significance – in her own words, songs that inspire the French term for love at first sight – “a coup de foudre“. ‘French Touch’ is warm and familiar, and inimitably Carla. Richly melodic, warm yet minimal, and often slyly playful – all the arrangements in this collection have been given that ‘French Touch’, and still have all the universal appeal as their originals, albeit with a sultry flavour all their own.
