Jane Birkin Announces New Album Oh! Pardon tu dormais…

Jane Birkin has announced her next album: Oh! Pardon tu dormais… is out on February 5 via Verve. It features contributions from Étienne Daho and Jean-Louis Piérot, with the former co-writing lyrics on several songs and the latter producing. The album also features the singer’s first-ever English-language songs. In addition, Oh! Pardon tu dormais… includes Birkin’s 2020 songs “Les jeux interdits,” “Oh! Pardon tu dormais…,” and “Ta sentinelle.”

Oh! Pardon tu dormais… translates to “Oh! Sorry you were sleeping…” in English. The album will mark the first time Birkin has ever used music to address the 2013 death of her daughter, photographer Kate Berry, according to a press release. “Étienne helped me release a past pain, which saved me from melancholy and inertia,” Birkin said in a press release. “The three of us—Étienne, Jean-Louis, and I—gave each other everything, we took everything from each other and I’m still stunned by how we worked together. We are this album’s parents… and this moves me.”

Last year, Birkin appeared alongside Iggy Pop to perform Serge Gainsbourg’s “Elisa” on Fallon. In 2017, she released Birkin/Gainsbourg: Le symphonique, an orchestral tribute to her late partner.
