We all know and love the cool, glamorous French yé-yé girls of the ’60s, but one of them stands out from the pack: Françoise Hardy. With her brunette hair and alluring bangs, she was one of the few girls at the time who wrote her own songs, and she did so from a place of depth and subtlety. Though she was a muse to the likes of Bob Dylan, Mick Jagger and husband Jacques Dutronc, Hardy was wary of fame, preferring privacy and modesty. She was a pop singer with the heart of a chanteuse, a singer-songwriter in an age before such a thing was known, and a style icon incredulous of others’ admiration of her.
We are so proud to present our Françoise Hardy reissue series of the five French-language albums she released yearly between 1962-1966. We’ve remastered each release from the original tapes, in their original French format, to sound better than ever!
The liner notes for these releases include an exclusive new interview with the illusive songstress. As Hardy has rarely been involved with prior reissues, this is quite a coup!
