An immense talent on-screen and in-studio, Charlotte is back with her first album in six years and “Ring-a-Ring O’ Roses” is actually the second track from Rest that has earned song-of-the-week honors (with “Deadly Valentine” being the other). Not that I had much of a choice this week anyway, as I’m a complete sucker for lovely French electro-pop records, so…
