    Charlotte Gainsbourg has announced a new album, Rest. The LP is her first in over seven years and is due out November 17th via Because Music. She last released the Beck-produced IRM in December of 2009.

    Gainsbourg worked with a number of contributors on the album, including Sir Paul McCartney, SebastiAn, Owen Pallett, and Connan Mockasin. Daft Punk's Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo co-wrote and produced the album's title track, which you can listen to below.

    Charlotte directed a music video for "Rest" herself after consulting with filmmaker Lars Von Trier with whom she has worked a number of times (Antichrist, Melancholia, Nymphomaniac):

    "At first I asked him if he would direct this video for me. He answered, 'No… you should do it.' He then said, knowing very well what I needed, 'I will tell you exactly what you must do.' He dictated quite precisely 'the rules' for me to follow. I was nodding through the telephone while writing down the master's principles. And that was it—the first push I longed for. To go out, and carry a camera for myself. Up to me to deliver my personality in either the archive footage I was choosing or the new images I filmed. Trying to create a repetitive language through this musical loop. Thanks to this first step into directing, I was able to take possession of my own imagery. Ensuing different music videos for quite a few of my album's songs."

    You can watch a preview of the video below.
