The crooning missus of French prez Nick Sarko this morning unveiled her latest album free online - ahead of its official release on 11 July.

Yes indeedy, Carla Bruni's dulcet tones are now available to subscribers on a "single time-credit of two non-consecutive hours" during which fans can sample the delights of Comme si de rien n'était ("As if nothing happened").

According to an in-depth analysis of the disc down at the Telegraph, advance reviews have been generally warm, with rock rag Les Inrockuptibles describing it as "a good album". Deputy ed Jean-Daniel Beauvallet admitted: "I didn't want to trash the record just for who she was."

Naturally, the 42-minute Comme si de rien n'était contains direct references to Bruni's whirlwind romance with Sarko. In Ta Tienne ("Yours"), she warbles: "Let them curse me, I don't give a damn. I couldn't care less, I take all the blame I who made men dance/I give myself to you entirely."

Steady on there love. Another track, Tu es ma came ("You are my drug"), apparently attracted a formal protest from the Colombian government for describing a love "more deadly than Afghan heroin, more deadly than Colombian white".

Well, you can judge for yourselves just how deadly Bruni's love for Le Prez is down at her website. We await your reviews with keen anticipation. ®
