Etienne Daho: Les chansons de l'innocence
A new video from Etienne Daho - Les chansons de l'innocence - ahead of the release of his new album, expected in Autumn this year.
The album will be his first collection of new material since 2007's L'invitation album, so there's certainly considerable expectation for his new material.
Daho's been a huge figure on the French music scene since the release in 1981 of his Mythomane debut, and he's not only had an enduring career but has embraced a wide variety of music styles, from pop and dance to more guitar based rock.
He's collaborated with artists like Charlotte Gainsbourg, Vanessa Paradis, Air, William Orbit and Arthur Baker.
Daho is well known in the UK after the release of the 1995 Réserection EP with British band Saint Etienne.
In recent years he's been involved in the Monsieur Daho album of 2011, which celebrated the 30th anniversary of his career with unreleased material, remixes and duets, along with the delux re-issues of a number of his albums. He also produced Lou Doillon's Places album that came out last year.
His new album, to be called Les chansons de l'innocence retrouvé, is due out in October and Daho will be touring from March next year.
