Landing on your ClashMusic.com straight after a rather pleasant chat with the lady herself, today’s Track of the Day comes from New Zealand’s silkiest popster, Ladyhawke.
The lady otherwise known as Pip Brown released her debut self-titled album earlier this year via Modular (Cut Copy, New Young Pony Club, Tame Impala), and the single ‘My Delirium’ is released on Monday, December 8. Click HERE to read our interview with Pip, and to watch the video to both ‘My Delirium’ and her summertime hit ‘Paris Is Burning’.
Speaking of which, we come to today’s musical morsel – a French-language take on ‘Paris Is Burning’. Well, it was there to be done. Says Pip of the song:
“The French version was just for fun. One of the guys I worked with on the album, Pascal Gabriel, is from Belgium, and he speaks French. I thought it might be cool to do a French version, and Pascal said, “Let me help you”. So he did, and one day he translated everything and tried to teach me how to pronounce it. He wrote it out phonetically, but because English isn’t his first language he wrote it out French phonetically, which didn’t really help at all! It turned out… Well, it sounds like I did a good job, but to a French person apparently I sound Spanish! I tried though.”
