Having just released her debut Places June 18th via Verve Records, Lou Doillon delivers a very pensive stroll through the streets of Paris in her new video for “ICU”, premiered earlier today via Yahoo Music!.
“Doillon, who initially began her career in the modeling and film worlds, started working on music in 2006. Her debut album, Places, just hit the States last week to considerable critical acclaim. If you’re not familiar with her acting, here’s a good chance to get acquainted with her effortlessly cool style.” - YAHOO! MUSIC
As the daughter of international icon Jane Birkin and Jacques Doillon, and with Serge Gainsbourg as her step-father, it goes without saying that Lou was born into a creative environment. Although she originally pursued acting and modeling careers, Lou always kept music as a hobby, and even wrote many songs in English, which she refers to as her “private language.” Lou instantly won over Europe when Places was released back in September of 2012. The collection resulted in the French Grammy for Female Artist of the Year earlier this year.
