Johnny Hallyday: 20 Ans
A new video by Johnny Hallyday, for the track 20 ans, one of the stand-out tracks from his L'attente album that was released in November last year.
Not an official video as such, but one that will be used to promote the song on TV and in the online media.
The video makes good use of old footage of Johnny, from the early 70s I think, intercutting it with film of the 2013 version of M. Hallyday.
The album was one of last year's biggest sellers in France, no doubt due to the extensive tour he undertook that saw not only dates across France, but shows in the USA and UK as well.
I was pleased to see the new Hallyday album for sale locally in the UK. Even if it was in the World Music section of a branch of HMV that is closing down.
As the lyrics suggest, he's far from retiring and will be touring again over the summer, his 70th birthday show at Bercy in Paris on June 15 will be shown on TF1, one of three dates he's playing there.
