The French singer will soon release an album containing her covers of songs that were originally performed by male artists.

Amandine Bourgeois won the French talent show Nouvelle Star in 2008 and she sang L’enfer et moi for France at the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest. Despite a 23rd place in the latter competition, Amandine is back in action. On 5 May she will release her 3rd album, Au masculin, a collection of Amandine’s versions of songs that were originally released by male singers, as suggested by the title.

On 21 March the first piece of Au masculin was released on YouTube: Ma gueule, a timeless tune of Johnny Halliday.

The album includes covers of such songs as Stromae’s Alors on danse , La ballade de Jim, originally sung by Alain Souchon, Love me, please love me, by Michel Polnareff, Alain Bashung’s Madame rêve and Il est cinq heures, Paris s’éveille, by Jacques Dutronc.

Amandine Bourgeois represented France in the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest with L’enfer et moi.
