News   Original, Tony-Winning Eponine Releases New Solo Recording Today, Including New Version of "On My Own"
 
London and Broadway's original Eponine, Tony winner Frances Ruffelle, releases her sixth studio recording, featuring songs that evoke the singing actress' love of Paris, Oct. 9.

Entitled "I Say Yeh-Yeh," the recording is produced by singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Gwyneth Herbert.

The album was recorded over three days, on old 60s equipment in the windowless basement of a converted brothel in East London.

"I fell in love with the fantasy of France when I was young," Ruffelle said in an earlier statement. "I always loved the effortless cool of Francoise Hardy, the style of Brigitte Bardot… This led me to discover the yé-yé movement, Juliette Gréco and, of course, Edith Piaf, whose music and life has inspired me a lot in my career."

To celebrate her new recording, Ruffelle will perform at the Crazy Coqs in London Oct. 13-17.

The complete track listing follows: 1. L’un Vers L’autre
2. Paris Summer featuring Rowan John
3. La Foule
4. Bang Bang
5. À Quoi Ça Sert? (Take The Mercedes Benz)
6. Yeh, Yeh/Ça Pourrait Changer featuring Gwyneth Herbert
7. Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien
