Can Bruni be first lady of pop? July 31, 2008

The singer-songwriter will be hoping the album repeats her early success

Frenzied media coverage has followed the whirlwind relationship of Carla Bruni and husband French President Nicolas Sarkozy at every turn.

Newspapers and television stations around the world have been captivated by the grace and elegance of the Italian-born former top model.

But little, outside of French-speaking countries, is known of the 40-year-old’s singing career despite 2003 debut album Quelqu’un m’a dit (Someone Told Me) – a minimalist folky affair – selling two million copies.

Last year’s No Promises, which set the words of English poets to original music, sold a disappointing 380,000 copies.

Largely self-penned third album Comme si de rien n’etait (As If Nothing Had Happened) – her first since becoming Sarkozy’s first lady – is released in Europe on Friday and in the UK on Monday.
