English actress and singer Jane Birkin has released a new album of songs by Serge Gainsbourg, her late collaborator. The album, called Birkin/Gainsbourg: Le Symphonique, features symphony-orchestrated versions of Gainsbourg compositions. It was arranged by Japanese composer Nobuyuki Nakajima, recorded by producer Philippe Lerichomme and performed by the Montreal Symphony Orchestra. A tour is expected later this year.
