Charlotte Gainsbourg told Jessica that for her third studio album IRM she and her producer/main collaborator Beck:
[T]ried very different things, and then gradually it was … homogène. [The songs are] all in different styles but one proper album. I was able to go and try a blues song, then go into more of a pop song. I even tried a rap that didn’t work out because I wasn’t very good…
We’ve had a chance to hear the edgy, Kraut-pulsed, MRI-lined title track and the Antichrist star does, indeed, take things in a different direction for “Heaven Can Wait,” her duet with Mr. Hansen.
IRM is out 1/26 via Because.
