After a three-year absence from recording, Colombian singer Fanny Lu is releasing a new single out on Sony Music. “El Perfume” (The Perfume), written by Carlos Vives with his longtime producer and co-writer Andrés Castro, marks a return to Fanny Lu’s original vallenato/pop sound, with prominent accordion riffs, a danceable beat and a hugely catchy chorus.

“Colombia is my country, my heart and my inspiration, and this new single and album reflect that,” said Fanny Lu.

With a mix of pop, vallenato accordion and the husky voice of an ingénue, Fanny Lu found success in 2006 with her catchy single “No te pido que me mandes flores” from her debut album Lágrimas Cálidas. Two subsequent singles, “Y si te digo” and “Tu no eres para mi” (with a video featuring Wilmer Vaderrama), reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay charts. Fanny Lu was most recently a coach on La Voz Kids Colombia and also collaborated with Vives in his new version of “La tierra del olvido.”
