French songstress/actress Charlotte Gainsbourg has released a free download of the title track off her forthcoming album IRM, due out in January. The album was produced, written and mixed by Beck and his influence is clearly all over this song: its hyper-rhythmic beat descends into a psychic drum freak-out amidst scanning, radiating and doorbell-like noises. You can watch a teaser video below in which Gainsbourg explains that “IRM” was inspired by her trips inside a Magnetic Resonance Imaging scanner. (In 2007, she suffered a minor brain hemorrhage following a water-skiing accident.)
Listen to “IRM” below and download it via Charlotte Gainsbourg’s website (email address is required).
