The years have passed since Sophie Zelmani's eponymous 1995 debut. Back in the mid-nineties her music was a fresh spring breeze, her sound unpolished and her songs mellow summer ballads of seldom-heard directness and honesty. After another three critically acclaimed albums, Sophie returns with her magical voice and the gift of expressing a lot with few words. "Love Affair" is an album about people and their relations. The songs evoke intimacy and demand attention and proximity The deluxe CD Booklet includes photos by Anton Corbijn.
