Our favorite French mademoiselle (and former BUST cover girl) Charlotte Gainsbourg has been making a splash the past few weeks in the new Lars Von Trier film Antichrist, and now she's back with the new single 'IRM' from her forthcoming album of the same name. The album, produced by our favorite Scientologist Beck, drops next February. Head on over to her website for a free download of the title track, and look for the first official single 'Heaven Can Wait' soon! ... Read More
