Zaho De Sagazan Shares Her Take On David Bowie’s ‘Modern Love’

A dynamic version of the song...

Zaho de Sagazan has shared her take on David Bowie’s ‘Modern Love’.

The singer performed the song at the opening of the Cannes Film Festival 2024, a homage-of-sorts to Greta Gerwig, the jury’s president.

As cinephiles may well remember, it was Gerwig’s breakout role in Frances Ha that forever connected her to the song – as her character danced through the streets, the song blasting out in the background, in a now-iconic scene.

Zaho’s performance went viral, with her profile having exploded in her native France throughout 2023. Debut album ‘La symphonie des éclairs’ was a colossal success, selling more than 100,000 records in France, going platinum in the process.

Asserting herself through the song, Zaho de Sagazan transforms ‘Modern Love’, in the process relocating her spirit. A real moment for the star, you can tune in to her take on the Bowie classic below.
