Carla Bruni returns to music after husband Nicolas Sarkozy lost the France presidential election in 2012. In a recent interview in New York, the 45-year-old singer/songwriter, who is currently on a tour to promote her latest album "Little French Songs", shared her excitement to work on music again.
Bruni said fans could expect something better from her fourth album, which she described as "folk music with a little pop." She ensured fans that her musical skill had improved, so the album was better than its predecessors. "Something has to get better with age," she said. "There is something good about getting older, and that is experience."
She also talked about a song called "Mon Raymond (My Raymond)". Bruni said that she sang about her "stunner," "complex, romantic but tactical" husband in the love song. "He was OK with [the song]. I think he liked it," Bruni said. "Of course, being the muse for a song is not a position a man usually has, but it is a tender song."
Bruni is set to go on a string of tour dates to promote her new album. She will tour France later this year before heading to the U.S. early next year. In another interview, the Italia-born model said that she was lucky to be able to tour the country.
"It's fantastic! I never did a tour in the United States, I never even toured in Europe," she gushed. "I hope people will come. For a French artist or Italian artist it's really rare and it's lucky."
