NEW YORK, Oct. 10 (UPI) -- Belinda Carlisle, pop diva of the 80s, is back with a new French-inspired album, "Voila!"
Her first album in a decade, "Voila!" also is Carlisle's first album sung entirely in French. The Rykodisc debut is slated for February 6, 2007, just in time for Valentines Day.
Carlisle, former lead singer of the Go-Go's, has reportedly worked with producer John Reynolds (U2, Indigo Girls) to record an album inspired by classic French music and vintage pop music.
"After I moved to France, I became familiar with the classic French chansons and a lot of French pop music," Carlisle said. "I realized there was a whole world of artists and singers I was not familiar with. As I discovered all these amazing songs, I came to love this music and wanted to record some of them with a playful, contemporary feel."
