About

From Wikipedia:

Charlotte Lucy Gainsbourg (French pronunciation: [ʃaʁlɔt ɡɛ̃sbuʁ] (listen); born 21 July 1971) is an English-French actress and singer-songwriter. She is the daughter of English actress Jane Birkin and French singer and songwriter Serge Gainsbourg. After making her musical debut with her father on the song “Lemon Incest” at the age of 12, she released an album with her father at the age of 15. More than 20 years passed before she released albums as an adult (5:55, IRM, Stage Whisper and Rest) to commercial and critical success. Gainsbourg has also appeared in many films, including several directed by Lars von Trier, and has received a César Award and the Cannes Film Festival Best Actress Award.

Paul McCartney wrote the song “Songbird In A Cage” for Charlotte Gainsbourg. The song was released on her 2017 album, “Rest“.

From VultureHound, September 8, 2017:

Another essay, ‘Songbird in a Cage’, was penned for Charlotte by Sir Paul McCartney, no less. “We had a very nice lunch about six-and-a-half years ago”, she recalls. “I couldn’t believe that I was actually sitting next to him. I told him that if he ever had a song for me it would be a dream come true. A few weeks later he sent this track. It was a demo. I didn’t know what to do with it, because I wanted it to be part of the album. We had to reinvent it. Paul very sweetly came to Electric Lady. He did a bit of piano, some bass, a bit of guitar. It was incredible, just to see him work”.
