Back in May we had announced that Joe Mount, from Metronomy, had been recording with Marion Cotillard, though nobody knew exactly what and in what format and when we’d get to listen! Today we got their first recording together and you can listen to it here now! Love Marion’s eerie voice in this. Enjoy!
In an exclusive interview with The Huffington Post UK the Metronomy’s founder Joe Mount revealed that he’s been spending some time in the studio during the band’s recent European tour – with Marion Cotillard:
“I’ve been doing lots of things, I swore to myself last time that I wouldn’t ever take my foot off the gas and it’s nice really. I’ve been working with other people and doing my own stuff. I was actually just doing some recording with Marion Cotillard, it’s going very good. ”
Joe is also keen to emphasise that he considers himself a producer now, though he does still plan to release at least two more Metronomy albums.
“I’m sure I’ve got as many albums left in me as anyone wants to release, but I’ve definitely got two really good ones,” he laughed, adding: “There will be more I’m sure, but maybe the quality will dip!”
Hopefully, we’ll be able to hear the result of this collaboration some time soon!
As always unannounced Simone (aka Marion Cotillard) made an appearance with Yodelice at their concert in the famous music hall Olympia in Paris. It was her second performance at the venue with Yodelice (after last May) and also where some of the filming for ‘La Vie en Rose‘ took place (one of the most famous Édith Piaf concerts took place at that venue). Last night, Simone only joined Yodelice for 2 songs: she was playing the guitar on My Bood Is Burning and More Than Meets The Eye. Heavily pregnant she seems to have been enjoying herself tremendously. Watch videos on YouTube.
France 4 & 2 finally aired the Taratata episode featuring Marion Cotillard. She appeared as Simone along with Yodelice for the song ‘More than meets the eye’ and then performed the David Bowie song ‘Velvet Goldmine’ as a duo with Yodelice. And then she was also interviewed. Rewatch the entire episode on MyTaratata.com.
She talked about her love of music and how she’s always had the dream to make music but it wasn’t until Yodelice aka Maxim Nucci pushed her that she’s living the dream. Yodelice was quick to praise her, saying that she’s very gifted and quick in learning how to play instruments by herself. She learned how to play the piano at home when she was little and how to play the cello for a film (‘Toi et moi‘) and now the guitar and bass guitar. When told not to minimalize her talents she explained that it was out of respect for musicians that she’s careful not to over emphasize her musical talents. When asked whether she dreamed of becoming a singer (musicienne) or an actress (comédienne) when she was a little girl she said she dreamed of being in musicals (comédies musicales). This lead to the music video Marion was in when she was 14 years old. She loved the song ‘Petite Fille’ a lot at the time and still loves the band Les Wampas. They joked that they could have a re-union on the show. Marion was also asked whether it’s imaginable that there’d be a solo album in the future and she said yes. The host joked that this probably means it’s already in preparation.
Yodélice’s new music video to the first song Breathe In on the new album is out! Watch the music video on UniversalMusic.fr. It features footage from the studio as well as live concerts – and really captures the atmosphere of seeing the band peform live! I’m not sure whether this is the final version or only a teaser – but for my taste it’s far too short!
