Francois & The Atlas Mountains UK Tour
The Quietus , November 18th, 2011 07:28

Tour dates in January, around the release of their first album for Domino E Volo Love

Afropop embracing francophone group Francois & The Atlas Mountains have announced 2012 tour dates. The band have also released the video for a new single, taken from their forthcoming new LP E Volo Love. Both are released on 23rd January through Domino.

The new single is called ‘Les Plus Beaux’, and somewhat resembles Serge Gainsbourg’s early 1960s forays into music from around the globe, but minus the man himself's sleaze and swagger, of course. You can listen to the track below:
