  • Charlotte Gainsbourg has released another single from the album IRM which was produced and mixed by Beck – he also wrote all of the music and co-wrote the lyrics.  “Heaven Can Wait” is Gainsbourg/Beck duet with clunky piano, simple percussion and nude vocals. It sounds like a song for a train scene in a movie. Click here to listen to “IRM” the first single – it’s a moody, angular song that was inspired by Charlotte’s medical experience with MRI scans after she found out she had a brain hemorrhage. The lyrics are interesting.
