The Absence is the third studio album by American jazz singer-songwriter Melody Gardot, released on May 29, 2012 by Verve Records and produced by Heitor Pereira. The same year, Gardot participated in an advertisement campaign for Piaget for which she recorded the song "La Vie En Rose". This song appeared in a French re-release of "The Absence" which also included a music video and the making of the same track.

If Melody Gardot's 2009 sophomore effort, My One and Only Thrill, sustained the sultry, atmospheric vibe of her critically acclaimed 2006 debut, her 2012 follow-up, The Absence, is a bit of a creative departure for the vocalist. Apparently inspired by her world travels, and specifically by a trip that brought her to the desert around the city of Marrakech, the album moves her away from smoky, small-group jazz and into a bright, if still bedroom-eyed, rhythmically exotic sound. However, rather than simply making a standards album, Gardot continues her all-original approach, offering up new literate and passionately delivered compositions that bring to mind the work of such similarly inclined artists as Antonio Carlos Jobim, Paul Simon, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, and others.

Renews automatically. Sample this album Artist (Sample). On this, her 4th album, she expands her repertoire to Latin music while maintaining her expressive voice to the late evening romantic crowd. One song "Goodbye" Melody sings like an early 1930ish rough Jazz singer totally changing her singing style.
