Bruni and Ilves Release Duet

Following in the footsteps of First Lady Carla Bruni, Estonia's First Lady Evelin Ilves has released her first album, First Lady First. "When Carla Bruni released her third album, Comme si de rien n'etait, after marrying Mr. Sarkozy, I realized what a full life one may lead after marrying a president," said Ilves to pop music writer Sasha Frere Jones, in part one of a six-part interview conducted for the American magazine, the New Yorker.
Like Bruni, Ilves also has composed the music and written the lyrics for her songs. Bruni joins Ilves on one of the tracks, "Transfat Trauma," in a duet where the gravelly-voiced Bruni sings scat while Ilves raps in the background about the pressures of public life. To promote First Lady First, Bruni and Ilves will headline through February 15th in the Showbaar Lounge aboard Tallink's M/S Superstar.
