@MattDusk is back in a duo bilingue with Montreal’s @Florence_K in “Somethin’ Stupid”

MATT DUSK & FLORENCE K, “Somethin’ Stupid”

After Juno Award-nominated success with his album My Funny Valentine: The Chet Baker Songbook, which featured a number of duets, Canadian pop/jazz singer Matt Dusk is back in a full album of duets with Quebec singer Florence K called Matt & Florence: Quiet Nights, due February 12.  From that album comes their cover of “Somethin’ Stupid”, a song popularized as a father-daughter duet in 1967 by Frank Sinatra and Nancy Sinatra, produced by Nancy’s guy Lee Hazelwood.  But that song was written and originally performed by a couple, and the other well known version is the UK 2001 #1 by Robbie Williams and Nicole Kidman.  Matt and Florence put a jazzy bounce into their rendition with an effortless, breezy set of vocals.  It’s complimented by a lovely slice-of-life video that captures a lot of carefree, affectionate moments that we all have sometimes.  And it’s even more appealing to hear the lyrics sung alternately in English and French, giving it a prelude-to-romance vibe that only the French language can do.  The only thing better would be hearing Matt and Florence sing it in concert! 🙂
