FRENCH first lady Carla Bruni has, together with her agent Bertrand de Labbey, sought to clarify a number of points relating to the release of her third album.

The new album will be called Comme Si De Rien N’était’ (As If Nothing Had Happened) and is named after a photograph by Carla’s brother, Virginio Bruni Tedeschi. The photograph is expected to feature on the album cover.

The album will be released in Europe in July and will then hit stores worldwide this summer.

Produced by Dominique Blanc-Francard, it will include 14 tracks written and composed by Carla Bruni, with the exception of two songs written in collaboration with French novelist Michel Houellebecq and singer Julien Clerc respectively, as well as two cover versions.

At Carla Bruni’s request, royalties from the album will be donated to charitable and humanitarian causes.

Carla Bruni’s last album, the sophomore effort No Promises, shot straight to No.1 in both the Billboard European Top 100 Albums Charts and the French charts, and has sold 380,000 copies worldwide to date, including 110,000 copies in France.
