Charlotte Gainsbourg's 3rd album reflects MRI experience


Daughter of the late French singer and actor Serge Gainsbourg and the British actress and singer Jane Birkin, Charlotte Gainsbourg has carved out a successful career in both fields.

She won the best actress award at Cannes last year for her role in the controversial film Antichrist, and has just released her third album.

Her album is called 'IRM' - the French abbreviation for MRI - and is a reflection on the repeated scans she had after suffering a brain haemorrhage following a waterskiing accident.

BBC Breakfast speaks to Charlotte about her new album and single Heaven Can Wait.
