Charlotte Gainbourg - new album mp3

Charlotte Gainsbourg, daughter of notorious Serge Gainsbourg, is set to release album 5:55 late august.
Maybe a bit worried about how to follow up she brings in the pros. Air, Jarvis Cocker and the Divine Comedy's Neil Hannon contribute with lyrics, and David Campbell (aka Beck's dad) arranges strings on the album. Nigel Godrich produces. From listening to this mp3 it all looks very very bright for the girl:

Finally someone posts a song from this album (I assume it's the whole song not a snippet). 5:55 has a few flaws (more atmosphere than actual songs), but most of the time the sweet voice of Charlotte, the lush instrumentation (Tony Allen on drums, people!) and the lyrics of love and heartbreak are wonderful. Daddy and Mommy (who herself released a recommendable album this year) can be proud. Serge is smiling on his cigarettesmoke-cloud
