THIS WEEK’S CD RELEASES
Les Sources Out now
Paradis doesn’t bombard the world with music – this is just her seventh album in a 30-year career that began with Joe Le Taxi when she was only 14. Sung breathily in French, Les Sources is an excellent thing of pastoral, autumnal Gallic-ness with a hip vintage edge, written by/with her post-Johnny Depp husband Samuel Benchetrit.
Odyssey Out now By Adam Woods
To mark 30 years together, Take That let producer Stuart Price loose on 25 of their hits, with a brief to freshen things up. He’s weeded out naff touches, dropped in atmospheric crowd noise and interview snippets, and levered in Barry Gibb on How Deep Is Your Love and Boyz II Men on Love Ain’t Here Any More. There are three new songs, too.
