Hollywood, Mon Amour

In his latest work, Hollywood, Mon Amour, French musician and composer Marc Collin, strove to redefine dated film songs. The self-titled full-length will be out March 3, 2009, and is a collection of some of the greatest songs from the movies of the 80s rearranged by the man behind Nouvelle Vague. Collin chose different singers than the ones who appeared on his previous records, finding a multinational group of vocalists, including Australia’s Nadeah, Britain’s – and former Morcheeba singer – Skye, the US’s Juliette Lewis, Brazil’s Cibelle, Denmark’s Katrine Ottosen, and France and Israel’s Yael Naim. Collin decided he wanted to recreate these songs, imagining them as if they were set in a different era, or performed by different characters with different backgrounds, different stories. All the songs included on the record were written specifically for movies.
