Singer Jospehine de la Baume is one half of the French singing group "Singtank" with the other half being brother Alexandre and she recently discussed her highly anticipated upcoming album "Ceremonies" that will be released in the fall. The first single for the album, "Can You Hear Me" will be released during the first week of June 2014 and the music industry is abuzz with excitement in part because the single is produced by her husband, renowned English DJ Mark Ronson.
The new album focuses on the topics of urban loneliness and dependence as she revealed that in Paris many people find it very difficult to make friends and one can become depressed in the city but ironically, it is one of the best cities in the world to be depressed in. She notes how because making friends is such a challenge people in Paris cherish their friendships which is not always the case in other places.
She and her brother in writing the songs for the album found that they both had a strong connection to the "emotional core" of the movies "Blade Runner" and "Chungking Express". The movies provided the inspiration and in some aspects the background for what they felt when writing the lyrics for the song.
Josephine de la Baume's profile is on the rise as a not just an actress but also a musician as she recently sung summer songs at the summer cocktail party of designer Roger Vivier.
In the past she was known for her beauty as a model but it looks like in the present and future she will be known as a singer/actress and entertainment insiders are predicting that this new album of Singtank will help heat up the indie-rock scene in Paris in 2014.
