Listen: Carla Bruni - "J'arrive à toi"

We certainly never started the day thinking that we'd be featuring "J'arrive à toi" from Carla Bruni as a recommended "Listen" track on DC. Sure, we can be taken in with the lovely French look and admit to being an easy mark for a woman -- particularly Bruni -- who can make singing in French an irresistibly alluring art form. But there's also something in the languidly turned melody and chiming, atmospheric guitar lines of "J'arrive à toi" ("I Come for You") that makes lyrical translation unnecessary. Taken from her forthcoming fourth album Little French Songs (Verve, April 16).
