Following the release of his last album “A Deep Sense Of Happiness” and in collaboration with Susanne Shields and Olivier Bostvironnois, Popincourt offers a revisited version of Shipbuilding, a standard that was notably recorded by Robert Wyatt and Elvis Costello. This song is part of an English compilation put together by The Specialized Project in support of charitable organizations like The Teenage Cancer Trust.
