Carla Bruni has released her brand new album this fall. Seven years have passed since the release of Little French Songs, his last album of original songs. His new album is eponymous, like an absolute signature. Always sensitive, sometimes on edge, the little music of the 13 tracks that compose it - 14 on vinyl and 17 on its collector's edition - affirms its temperament. It often attests to a desire for simplicity. No doubt because the framework of the songs was built very early, even before entering the studio. Guitar, piano, a few foot beats and melodic fragments as the foundations of most of the tracks, behind closed doors with Albin de la Simone who produced the entire album. For his very first collaboration with Carla Bruni, the multi-instrumentalist musician - one of the most brilliant of his generation for twenty years - took to heart to dress and stage his new songs which came like so many little miracles. Primarily written in French, the album features one song in English and another in Italian, a duet performed with actress Valeria Bruni Tedeschi. The compositions are by Carla Bruni, Michel Amsellem, Jeremy Reynolds and Calogero. Listening to this new manifesto "Carpe Diem", we can only get a little more of the present. And that's what ultimately disarms Carla Bruni's songs: the simplicity of the confidence. Free, friendly and loving, therefore essential.
Carla Bruni is part of the 90's super Models team along side Naomi Campbell, Helena Christensen, Claudia Schiffer and Cindy Crawford.
Carla Bruni has worked for the main luxury French and Italian brands walking their fashion shows for Haute Couture and Prêt à Porter such as Christian Dior, Balmain, Versace, Valentino, Chanel, YSL... and shot their campaigns with the world’s top photographers such as Peter Lindberg Driu et Tiago, Mert et Marcus, Mario Sorrenti, with whom Carla also shot editorials for Vogue, Elle, Harpers Bazar worldwide.

In the beginning of the year 2000, Carla slowed down her fashion career to concentrate on her music career, in 2002 her first album "Quelqu'un m'a dit" came out with a huge worldwide success (two millions of sales and double diamond record certification), followed by 4 successful albums: "No Promises", "Comme si de rien n'était" , "Little French Songs" (double platinum exported record certification) and "French Touch" (platinum exported record certification).
