Johnny Hallyday: L'Attente
With a major release from Johnny Hallyday announced at the end of last month - the Johnny History 23 CD box set - I hadn't expected another release announcement just days later.
While I knew he had been in the recording studio working on new material, I hadn't expected it to surface so quickly.
The new single L'Attente comes from an album of the same name that's scheduled to come out on November 12.
Johnny sounds in good voice here, in a track written by Miossec. It's his first new material since the release of his Jamais Seul album in 2011 and was recorded just last month.
Meanwhile, Hallyday's resumed his tour, with dates in Montreal and his first ever show in New York at the Beacon Theatre, bringing his live experience to a more intimiate audience of under 3,000 as opposed to the 15,000 he played to each night in Montreal.
With the mosst recent apparent health problems behind him, Johnny doesn't sound like he's slowing down or retiring anytime soon.
