Jack White’s Third Man Records to reissue France Gall albums on vinyl
Third Man Records has announced plans to reissue three iconic albums from the late French pop singer France Gall.
In 1965, aged 17, Gall was propelled to international fame when she won the Eurovision Song Contest and solidified her status in popular music. With collaborations with the likes of Serge Gainsbourg and Michel Berger, Gall released 28 records through her long career before passing away in 2018 at the age of 70.
Now, as part of a reissue series, Third Man will revisit some of Gall’s past work: “Third Man Records is excited to announce three issues of albums by prolific French vocalist France Gall, marking the first North American vinyl pressings of all three albums,” the label said in a statement.
“Baby Pop, 1968 and Poupée de Cire, Poupée de Son will be available in stores on February 21. Third Man will host a series of release day dance parties in select cities, where DJs will spin yé-yé (the style of music for which Gall is known) and French psych.
“Limited-edition coloured pressings of the reissues will be available at the events. See below for the list of parties, and pre-order Baby Pop, 1968 and Poupée de Cire, Poupée de Son.“
