3 is the third album by Nouvelle Vague, released 16 June 2009. Once again, the album consists entirely of cover versions but, according to their official MySpace "this time they’re performing duets with the original singers. The other way NV3 differs from its predecessors is in the arrangements of the songs. Aside from the reggae and bossa nova interpretations, the songs are also inspired by country music and bluegrass. For this is what they do best; they take the songs that you adore and make you fall in love with them all over again."
