French first lady Bruni records new album in Paris
French President Nicolas Sarkozy's wife Carla Bruni is currently recording her fourth album in Paris and not as reported in Los Angeles, her agent said Friday.
The supermodel-turned-pop star is writing the lyrics and the music for the new album,the release date for which has not yet been made public. Some press reports said she was planning to record the work in the United States.
The French first lady's last album "Comme si de rien n'etait" ("As if Nothing Had Happened"), a collection of folk-pop songs mostly penned by Bruni, was released in 2008 and has sold about two million copies.
Bruni made headlines last week when the Cannes film festival announced that a Woody Allen movie in which she has a tiny part would open the glitzy 10-day event.
The romantic comedy "Midnight in Paris," with a starry cast that includes Oscar-winner Marion Cotillard and US actors Owen Wilson and Adrien Brody, will be shown out of competition at the world's most prestigious film bash.
