Jane Birkin

Genre: Chanson
Origin: United Kingdom

Born in London in 1946, Jane Birkin began her career as an actress at 17. After her role in Antonioni’s Blow-Up, Jane moved to France, where she landed a role in Slogan directed by Pierre Grimblat, sharing the bill with Serge Gainsbourg. The couple made gossip headlines with their scandals, memorably so with the album Serge Gainsbourg-Jane Birkin (1969) and its shock-hits Je t'aime… moi non plus and 69 année érotique, selling a million copies in just a few months. After the couple separated in 1981, Jane released a string of successful albums, including Baby alone in Babylone (1983). Upon Gainsbourg’s death, Birkin recorded Versions Jane and Arabesque, two albums covering his greatest songs, becoming a worldwide ambassador for his music. Birkin also released À la légère (1998), Rendez-vous (2004) and Fictions (2006), consisting of original songs. The singer and international icon has collaborated with such artists as Goran Bregovic, Paolo Conte, and Alain Souchon. In November 2008, Birkin released her first album entirely composed of self-penned songs, Enfants d'hiver.
