Looking at Charlotte Gainsbourg’s discography, one thing you’ll notice is over the course of four albums, she’s worked with some big name producers. Serge Gainsbourg, Nigel Godrich, and Beck have produced previous albums, and it appears that the title track from the forthcoming album Rest had some good help as well. Charlotte’s fifth album will be released on November 19th and it’s an absolute pleasure to share “Deadly Valentine,” a track that might make fans of Ladytron take notice. The video features another BIG BEAT favorite, Dev Hynes of Blood Orange fame.
