French artist/actor/model Lulu Gainsbourg (son of French icon Serge Gainsbourg and actress/model Bambou) is stepping out of his father's shadow with his forthcoming album Lady Luck - made up of original material inspired by events from his private life.
The first single and title track off the forthcoming album is "Lady Luck" and the corresponding music video manages to capture the sultry feel of the music that inspired it.
In true Gainsbourg fashion, Lady Luck will feature collaborations with some chic names including Anne Hathaway, Ara Starck, Drew McConnell (of Babyshambles), and Paul Turner and Derrick McKenzie (of Jamiroquai) and is produced by Grammy award-winning sound engineer Jeremy Loucas.
“Lady Luck was born after a difficult break up. I sat down and started playing the piano to share my emotions.” To do so, Lulu dedicated himself to specific rules, composing and arranged all the songs himself. He draws from his own experience for the lyrics, and, determined to sing in English, he decided to work with American writers. A logical choice for someone who spent several years abroad between London (where he currently lives), New York, Los Angeles and Boston where he attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music.
Lulu's first album, From Gainsbourg to Lulu, was recorded as a tribute to his father - made up entirely of covers of Serge's beloved songs alongside guest artists like Johnny Depp, Marianne Faithfull, Iggy Pop, Scarlett Johansson and Rufus Wainwright. “At first, it was important that I pay tribute to my father’s work, but I don’t want to be the son who revisits his dad’s repertoire indefinitely,” says Gainsbourg.
