Dublin’s Evening Herald reports that Damien has recorded 2 tracks with French actress Melanie Laurent.
The tracks will appear on Melanie’s forthcoming album, released on 5 May.
“It’s a crazy story. I went to Woodstock [over two years ago] to record the album and I was unhappy with what happened there,” she recalled.
“I called my manager and asked him to call Damien Rice’s manager and organise something. I didn’t expect him to come, but he did, and we started to work together. I fired everyone and followed him to Ireland.
“He taught me everything about being a musician. I was a huge, huge fan, so it was weird for me to just speak with him like it’s natural, when I was like, ‘Oh my God, I’m speaking with Damien Rice and we’re creating music together’.”

French actress Melanie Laurent has been speaking again about Damien’s influence on her musical career. Here is an extract from her interview with The Independent newspaper in Great Britain.
“Working with Damien on my first CD as a singer also makes me lose confidence, because compared to him I’m not a singer. But I think it’s important to lose confidence because if you don’t, then you risk just being the same actress all the time.”
