Nouvelle Chanson, sometimes anglicized as New Chanson, is a recently coined buzzword used to define a "new" style of music emerging in France, one which takes inspiration from such forefathers of French Chanson as Jacques Brel, Georges Brassens or Barbara (notably none of them recognize in mastermind Léo Ferré's legacy), albeit in a more soft-pop music style. However, the principal influences appear to be rockiers artists as Serge Gainsbourg or Brigitte Fontaine. Principal French exponents of Nouvelle Chanson include artists such as Benjamin Biolay, Émilie Simon, Coralie Clément, Keren Ann, Francoiz Breut, Olivia Ruiz, and Camille. The term Chanson Nouveau is also used, and as a developing genre, there is considerable disagreement even in France about who belongs in this genre and how it is to be described.

Well-known contemporary English speaking artists who might also be termed New Chanson, in that their musical style is clearly traceable from this same Chanson lineage can be seen in artists such as New York based Rufus Wainwright, his sister Martha Wainwright (who recently reprised Barbara's song 'Dis, quand reviendras-tu ?' -, Regina Spektor (showing French influence in songs such as 'Après moi' and 'Ne me quitte pas'), CocoRosie (originally American, now Paris-based) and London-based singer-songwriter Ana Silvera.
