After Belgian electro-samba wunderkinds Antena split at the end of 1985, singer Isabelle Antena immediately shed her cold wave crown for a sophisticated pop princess tiara. On 1986ís Martin Hayles-produced En Cavale, echos of Madonna and city pop abound, with a lipstick stain of L80s Euro dance and spilled cosmopolitanís worth of bossa nova stirred in for good measure. This elegant second chapter of a French pop diva has been expanded to include Antenaís shelved Island Records demo, adjacent B-sides and rarities, plus an expansive essay and previously unpublished photographs.
