Early buzz about the forthcoming album IRM, that French actress and singer Charlotte Gainsbourg made with Beck, sounds promising. Gainsbourg is the daughter of French avant-pop provocateurs Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin, so she had a lot going for her even before she linked up with producing-powerhouse Beck. The album will be out in January via French label Because. The first single “Heaven Can Wait,” a Beck/Gainsbourg duet, is today’s jam. It’s short and sweet, a perfect way to start off the week.
