If you are a fan of the multi-talented Frenchman Woodkid (Yoann Lemoine to his parents) then you may be interested in learning that he’s going to be playing a show at the top of the Eiffel Tower on the 24th of January. You may also be interested in learning that you could be there.

Here we are. Welcome to Twenty-Twelve (that’s going to get on my tit), year of the Olympics, Euros and probably the year the world will end.

The second single off this album features Megan Washington on vocal duty, who is also responsible for singing on the Kings Of Leon cover. If this sounds like a good mix then, rest assured, I can tell you it is. Stream the song below and you can download it from Lanu’s bandcamp page for absolutely nothing.
