About the artwork

Released in 1971, The Story of Melody Nelson was Serge Gainsbourg’s first concept-album. Written in collaboration with composer Jean-Claude Vannier, it tells the story of Melody Nelson, a young woman with red hair played by the singer’s muse, Jane Birkin. The latter lends her voice to the character in several songs on the album, and her image by posing on the album cover. Unsurprisingly, the Gamma agency was on site to document the mythical photo session.
