Thanks to the runaway success of her international hit "New Soul" - as featured in Apple ads - Yael Naim's self-titled 2007 release propelled the French-Israeli singer-songwriter on a yearlong promotional trek around the globe. But rather than record her follow-up album in studios scattered here, there and everywhere, Naim knew she had to wait until she returned to her home in Paris to begin work again with her longtime musical partner, David Donatien.
Out May 10th in the US, Naim's stunning new album, She Was a Boy (which has already surpassed Gold status in France), collects 13 luminous folk-pop gems, each recorded at the singer's apartment-turned-workshop.
