Bruni sings about love and drugs

MELBOURNE: People will be able to hear French first lady Carla Bruni sing about drugs and love when her third pop album hits stores this July. The yet-to-be titled album features 14 songs including a vintage Bob Dylan tune, an Italian song and a piece based on a poem by French author Michel Houellebecq. Some of the titles on the album are My junk, about drugs, and Love Song.

According to her agent Bertrand de Labbey, the 40-year-old ex supermodel has composed the music and wrote the lyrics to most of the songs on the album. Most of the songs were

written before she met President Nicolas Sarkozy. “Ninety-five per cent of the songs on the album were written before she met the president,” Telegraph quoted De Labbey, as saying.

The voice tracks are done but the album still needs some sound mixing. It’s just a matter of perfecting it but, as she is a perfectionist, it will take time,” De Labbey added. Bruni, who veered into music in her mid-30s, married Sarkozy in February after a three-month romance. The album is due to release in France, Britain, Germany and in her native Italy on July 21.
