French producer Marc Collin and his band Nouvelle Vague have won fans and foes aplenty with their fresh takes on New Wave classics. Gabriella Coslovich reports. The new album will feature duets with the original singers of the some of the featured songs, including Depeche Mode’s Martin Gore.

“It will bring a kind of credibility and it will be funny because obviously a lot of people who were fans of the Specials, of Depeche Mode, it will be hard for them to say that we are doing bad work because we are working with the original singers,” Collin says.

“It is quite a funny and lovely story. We were fans of all these bands and now they are working with us. It’s a beautiful story.”
