New album from Etienne Daho
Five years after the release of L’Invitation, which became a platinum album and won a Victoire de la Musique Award in 2008, Etienne Daho is back with Les Chansons d’Innocence Retrouvée, which has already been acclaimed by both public and media. For this new album, coproduced with Richard Woodcraft (engineer and mixer of the album The Last Shadow Puppets) and Jean-Louis Pierot (best known for producing the albums Fantaisie Militaire by Alain Bashung and Suppléments de Mensonge by Hubert-Félix Thiéfaine), Etienne Daho collaborated with Nile Rogers (of the group Chic) and Dominique A, who composed one of the tracks. Etienne Daho has also just won the Sacem Grand Prix de la Chanson Française for his career achievements and to recognize the quality of his work, which has set French pop alight for over 30 years now.
