Great but another album of new material gets pushed out by at least two or three years presumably...

Not necessarily, Eamonn. Jarvis' band could have knocked up the backing tracks in a week or two, and Jarvis wouldn't have needed more than a couple of days to sing the pieces. He could still be working on something else in the meantime. If his muse hasn't deserted him, I suppose! It doesn't feel like it's being promoted as a Jarvis/Jarv Is thing, but an 'in universe' addition to a Wes Anderson project.

Loving the first 'single', btw. Sounds exactly as over-the-top and silly as you'd want Jarvis singing a French song in a Wes Anderson film to be.

Shame he didn't cover Les Roi de Fourmis again. That was a cracking FrenchPulp tune that is harder to listen to than it should be!

Ce serait bien que l'orthographe des titres soit respectée. La liste des titres, c'est du grand n'importe quoi.!

Hopefully you're right, Stephen.

He's a lazy bugger though. Signed a book deal four and a half years ago and still no sign of it.

I like Aline though, stirring stuff and I love some of those old French chansons.
Actually has a hint of Bar Italia in the verse melody.

Upon further listening, Aline is fantastic isn't it? Most fun song Jarv has done in a fair old while.

I really like this. I have a few CD's of chanson, mostly compilations of pre-1950's singers, but would like hear and learn more.

I pre-ordered my copy from recordstore.co.uk , where they gave a 10% discount for registering on a mailing list. They are listing the LP release date as 12/Nov, CD 22/Oct.

I think this is the first new music I've bought since Beyond The Pale. Just seemed to lose interest in everything during Covid, and feel like I'm finally waking up after a long slumber. Finally got back into the library last week for the first time since early 2019 (apart from pre-ordered collections from the front desk), and it was such a pleasure - so easy to take for granted, but it's such a treasure.
