Lou Doillon today releases the video for ‘Too Much’, the latest track lifted from her new album ‘Soliloquy’, which is out now via Wrasse Records. The follow-up to 2016’s Victoires de la Musique-nominated, Gold-selling album Lay Low, ‘Soliloquy’ features production credits from The Dø’s Dan Levy and Cat Power’s Chan Marshall. The video for ‘Too Much’ – shot by Matt Lambert (Anna Calvi, Austra), which captures Doillon on a night of carousing in her native Paris.
‘Soliloquy’ marks a new way of working from Doillon on her third album. Inspired by the laissez-faire approach of Timber Timbre’s Taylor Kirk across Lay Low, Doillon deliberately sought out the skills of 4 various co-producers to enrich her raw and uncompromising song-writing. Speaking about the making of ‘Soliloquy’, Doillon says; “I had a desire to be more upfront. Working with different people in different studios and with the different energies has brought something richer than when I worked with one producer. Extremes. I made the link between them.”
Lou – daughter of Jane Birkin & French film director Jacques Doillon, and sister to Charlotte Gainsbourg – came comparatively late to music. Already established as an in-demand film & theatre actor, and also a gifted artist, Doillon was well into her twenties before she sung in public for the first time. More than making up for lost time, Lou’s 2012 debut solo album, Places, won her the Best Female gong at the Victoires, going on to sell over 350,000 copies worldwide.
Having previously performed alongside the likes of Jarvis Cocker, Animal Collective, John Cale and John Grant, Doillon will soon announce UK headline shows to support the release of ‘Soliloquy’.
