Canadian singer Natasha St-Pier, the 2001 French Eurovision entrant, has released earlier today her new music video featuring the 2012 French Eurovision hopeful Anggun.

Natasha St-Pier took everyone by surprise when she announced the release of a brand new album only a few months after the record Bonnes nouvelles which did not convince the general public. Her new effort is actually a concept album conceived together with French singer and songwriter Grégoire and based on the religious texts and poems of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, a famous 19th century French Carmelite nun. The project will mark the 140th anniversary of the her birth.

The album titled Thérèse / Vivre d’amour is supported by the release of a first single, Vivre d’amour, an exclusive duet with Indonesian superstar and the 2012 French Eurovision participant Anggun. Thanks to the song, both former Eurovision entrants will be back under the spotlights in France after a series of misadventures in their respective music career. Natasha St-Pier’s previous album has sold merely 16,000 copies since its release despite its fresh sound and the Canadian singer has mainly focused on her role as a coach in the second season of the popular talent show The Voice in Belgium (see here) besides giving a few acoustic concerts. Anggun has remained very discreet in France since her Eurovision failure, touring with electro artist Schiller and privileging her new mission as an international judge for the Indonesian version of The X Factor (see here).

It seems that both singers worked on their music comeback in France as well with this exclusive duet. Natasha St-Pier is now eager to promote her new project and sing her new tracks during concerts. Anggun, besides releasing a best-of album (see here) will most probably enjoy this new exposure to produce new materials pretty soon.
