Nouvelle Vague (French for "new wave") is a bossa nova (also "new wave") group initiated by French musicians Marc Collin and Olivier Libaux. The group has so far released two albums. The first one is an eponymous album consisting of bossa nova covers of songs from the New Wave and other genres. The covers include songs by Joy Division, Dead Kennedys, The Clash and Depeche Mode. The various female singers on Nouvelle Vague only performed songs they were not previously familiar with, to ensure that each cover would have a unique quality.
