3 (also known as NV3) is the third studio album by the French band Nouvelle Vague. It was released 16 June 2009 on Peacefrog Records. As with their previous releases, the album consists entirely of cover versions of post-punk and new wave songs from the 1970s and 1980s. Four of the tracks are performed as duets, featuring the song's original vocalist performing alongside one of Nouvelle Vague's female singers.

Nouvelle Vague is a French band led by musicians Olivier Libaux and Marc Collin. Their name means "new wave" in French, and refers simultaneously to the French New Wave cinema movement of the 1960s, to the new wave music movement of the 1970s and 1980s, which provides many of the songs that the band cover, and to bossa nova (Portuguese for "new wave"), a musical style that the band frequently uses in its arrangements.

The groups first album, the self-titled Nouvelle Vague, was released in 2005, I thought this idea was absolutely crazy but very exciting. So we decided to get into the studio and try it out as soon as possible, then we did Them Boyz in the Hood and Somebody to Love. We put the album together in just eight months, and after that we called ourselves Nouvelle Vague. The songs on the first album were recorded with vocalists who reportedly had not previously heard the songs they would be singing.
