“I feel closer to my own cutting edge now, than ever before.” – Annie Lennox
Multi-million selling, iconic artist Annie Lennox will release her fourth solo album, Songs Of Mass Destruction, on 1st October through RCA Label Group. The first single to be taken from the eagerly awaited album will be the wonderful and mesmerising Dark Road.
The album was recorded in LA with veteran producer Glen Ballard (of ‘Jagged Little Pill’ fame), marking a change from her long and fruitful association with producer Steve Lipson.
In a career that has spanned over 25 years, including the 15 years since Annie released her first solo album, Diva, no other British female artist has achieved so much. Over 78 million sales across the globe, and 33 hit singles compliment the 4 Grammies, 11 BRITS, 5 Ivor Novellos, the Oscar, and the 2 Golden Globes amongst other accolades.
Songs Of Mass Destruction showcases an artist not afraid of pushing boundaries. Annie delivers intelligent thought provoking lyrics matched with an adult pop sound. The result, from the haunting introductory song, Dark Road to the closing epic, Fingernail Moon, is a sumptuous musical soundscape within which Annie’s voice shines and soars.

Air-conditioned hotels at 30% to 40% off in August
What most people dont know is that low season in Paris is August That s one of the reasons why The city of Paris created Paris Plages… To promote Paris in low season as well as offering the parisians a summer entertainment. August in Paris is fabulous : you can have great hotel deals and enjoy the summer sale and shop at 70% off ! When choosing a hotel for your stay in Paris, air conditioning is not the only issue that should guide your choice. Although it is still an exception in France, most hotels now have air conditioning. The French don’t really believe in AC, but they do understand that most visitors expect it so it is becoming more common.
In the Marais district alone there are about one hundred hotels. But you should be aware that there are hotels that have the word «Marais» in their name, but are located outside the area. Before you book, be sure that the address of the hotel you have selected is in the 75003 or 75004 postal codes – anything else is not le Marais! Some hotels we can recommend you are close to it in district 11 or 12 such as the wonderful Marceau Bastille****, close to Bastille Area.
You want to be aware of the «star» ratings for hotels you find in guide books and on web sites. The French classification for hotels is very strict – maybe the most strict in the world – but it does not include categories for charm and style. You can easily have a 3-star hotel that receives this rating because it offers a certain amount of space, a separate, private bathroom and specific services, but it can be lacking in the classic Parisian atmosphere that will make your trip extra-special. These types of hotels are numerous and you’ll usually find them on the big travel networks or reservation services.
PARISMARAIS selected hotels are the best you can find in the district. We visit almost every room before we include them in our web guide, and only a limited number of hotels receive the Parismarais stamp of approval. We recently stopped promoting some hotels including some famous ones because they had an homophobic attitude. We do encourage our readers to book online with the ones we have selected. We recommend about 20 hotels in le Marais with ratings from 2- to 5-stars, including the wonderful Hotel du Petit Moulin**** designed by Christian Lacroix and the convenient, friendly and affordable Relais du Marais ** on rue de Turbigo. Check this selection http://www.parismarais.com/4-star-hotels-paris-marais.htm
Size does matter when it comes to hotel rooms. Most 3-star hotel rooms are just 150 square feet and sometimes less. 4-star rooms must be at least 200 square feet to receive this classification. Due to the small size of buildings in Paris’ historic center, there are very few 4-star hotels because the rooms are just too small to get the standard classification. But some upscale 3-star hotels easily match the international classification for 4-stars.
A cheaper and often great alternative if you stay over one week is to rent an apartment and then enjoy life like a real parisian… Check this selection to start http://www.parismarais.com/visit-our-flats.htm
When you book with any of the outstanding hotels featured in our web guide, please be sure to mention that you found them at Parismarais.com!

Kimberly Clark is a Rotterdam-based collective founded by the post-symbolist painter Iris Van Dongen. This women trio who have borrowed their name from the famous brand of sanitary equipment provoque and put forward the new status of conquering and desinhibited women with autoderision.
