In 2006, Isabelle Adjani and Pascal Obispo began producing a musical album. Seventeen years later, this one should be released at the end of the year and contains many duos.

As the saying goes: “everything comes at the right time to those who know how to wait”. Forty years after “Marine Pull”, Isabelle Adjani is preparing to reconnect with the music scene. According to information from the “Parisien”, an album, composed by Pascal Obispo, should see the light of day by the end of the year. “It’s one of the most beautiful things I’ve done in my life in music”, confesses the singer to the national daily. “I had Isabelle listen to it. She’s happy it sounds like she wanted. With a particular climate, a film music side, another electro, between Massive Attack, Ryuichi Sakamoto and Billie Eilish”, he explains. A first single should hit stores in the spring. The album is slated for the end of the year. It is made up of a slew of duets with great artists such as Seal, Etienne Daho, Benjamain Biolay, Youssou N’Dour, Gaëtan Roussel and Akhenaton.
