From the sound of it, Lou Doillon was surprised as anyone by her own musical successes. Her 2012 debut put her new career on the map, earning her a French Grammy for Artist of the Year, only to be catapulted to global fame with her 2016 followup. Fame as a singer-songwriter, at least. As an actress, model and the daughter of two famous parents, Doillon has never not been a known quantity, but making music has allowed her to pursue a number of creative passions in a single project. This year’s Soliloquy is the result of collaborations with multiple producers, including Cat Power and Timbre Timbre’s Taylor Kirk, allowing her to explore more musical directions than ever before. On a trip to New York, Doillon stopped by our offices to discuss opening for Madness, feeling old at 30 and why there are so few karaoke bars in France.
