Amandine Bourgeois, who represented France at the Eurovision Song Contest 2013, has unveiled today the first single of her forthcoming album. Titled Ma gueule, the song is a cover of French national rocker Johnny Hallyday’s success from 1979 and will be the first extract from the album Au masculin to be released on 5 May.

Following her disappointing result in Malmö with L’enfer et moi, Amandine Bourgeois had to forget the idea to record and release a new original album without the support of her music label (see here). However thanks to the success of the collective album Génération Goldman she took part in (see here), the young singer went back to the studios to record a new album to be released in May.

Titled Au masculin, the album will consist of surprising covers of Amandine’s favorite songs originally performed by male singers. The album was recorded and produced in cooperation with Quentin Bachelet who composed Sognu the 2011 French Eurovision entry of Amaury Vassili. The sale of Au masculin will most probably determined whether or not Amandine will release a new original album later this year. Let’s wish her the best of luck in her new venture!
