From the first steps to the first words, to the first kisses…. Life is made of first times that lead to a series of last times, Charlotte Gainsbourg speaks about herself in her latest album Rest. Uncompromising self-portrait, acclaimed by the international press, as one of 2017 best albums (Pitchfork, The Guardian, The Independent, Les Inrockuptibles….). The album is produced by SebastiAn, from the label Ed Banger, his background in electronic  music accorded with Charlotte’s Desire for a sound with a disquieting, mechanistic edge.

After having been surrounded in the past by Beck’s musicians, on Coachella’s stage and around the world, and then Connan Mockasin a few years later, Charlotte Gainsbourg is back on stage.
