Charlotte Gainsbourg & Conor O’Brien (Villagers)
Record Store Day 7” Single ‘Memoir’ 16th April 2011
Last Autumn, Charlotte Gainsbourg approached Conor O'Brien (aka Villagers) to compose a song for her. The result is 'Memoir', a song which Conor wrote between soundchecks and radio sessions on his week-long tour of the Midwest last September. The track was completed after working through the night in a Chicago hotel room.
Charlotte loved it and they recorded it together the following week at Studio Ferber in Paris, with Conor co-producing alongside Renaud Letang (producer of Feist, Jamie Lidell, Manu Chao).
The split 7" features the sumptuous 'Set the Tigers Free' by Villagers as well as Charlotte's beautiful rendition of 'Memoir', all wrapped up in some striking artwork by Conor and sold exclusively for Record Store Day.
The track will also feature on Charlotte Gainsbourg's Live and Unreleased Album, which will follow later this year.
RSD Means Ripple Store Day – Special Discounts for Record Store Day Weekend
