The LP Birkin/Gainsbourg: Le symphonique is out now to wide critical acclaim. Arranged by Emmy Award-winner Nobuyuki Nakajima with artistic direction by Philippe Lerichomme, the album features symphonic versions of classic Gainsbourg songs ranging from the beginnings of his career in the 1950s to those written especially for Birkin, such as “Jane B” and “Baby Alone in Babylone,” penned after the legendary couple’s separation.
