In such times of socio-political chaos and uncertainty, one of the truly beautiful things we can count on without doubt is that our love affair with the divine Charlotte Gainsbourg will carry on. And after just last year gracing us with Rest, perhaps her most visceral album to date, she’s back with a very special Christmas present: a striking new 5-song EP, Take 2 (which includes a cover of Kanye West’s “Runaway.”)

The first single from said EP is the glorious “Such a Remarkable Day,” a shimmering, but haunted retro-synth-pop stunner, which distinctly recalls Music For The Masses era Depeche Mode – and which finds her voice sounding more ethereal than ever. Fittingly, the accompanying video shows Mlle. Gainsbourg in performance with her band, immersed in 80s-style aesthetics and effects.

She’s currently touring Europe, with shows in Paris, London, Borgerhout (Belgium) and Cologne between now and December 18. Obviously, it’s worth the trip.
