Her first original album in seven years, the eponymous record is a reflection of Carla Bruni, a wholehearted embracing of her true self. Guitar, piano, a bit of foot-tapping and fragments of melody are the foundation of all the tracks, recorded with Albin de la Simone, who produced the entire album. The renowned multi-instrumentalist was determined to give her new songs the most delicate treatment. The music of the album bears witness to a unique temperament and a strong sense of the present moment. Always sensitive, with a desire for a calm simplicity, there is a disarming allure about Bruni's songs: the intimacy, the simplicity, in a spirit of freedom, friendship and love.
