Daho & Jade

In France it's big news: French new wave/ pop  idol Etienne Daho made a Christmas song - in French. Great! It's part of an extra Deluxe edition of, 'Tirer La Nuit Sur Les Étoiles - Only For You', his last album which came out this summer.  It's quite a sober song, but it grows on you.
Daho made his album with help from Unloved, a trio featuring Irish DJ David Holmes, probably best known for their cover of 'This Strange Effect' in the series Killing Eve. Singer Jade Vincent recently made a Xmas single; both sides have happy lyrics, but morose (yet sultry), gothic, 50s music. It's out on vinyl, but only 50 copies!
