Le Vent Nous Portera – Song Of The Day

Noir Desir

“Le Vent Nous Portera” (translated as “The Wind Will Carry Us”) is a song by French rock band Noir Désir released as a single back in 2002. It is a melancholic, hugely atmospheric ballad with a folky rhythm (provided, funnily enough, by Manu Chao) and some bittersweet vocals which can be found on the album Des Visages Des Figures. It reached number 3 in the French charts and remains one of the band’s most memorable tunes.
