Emilie simon mon chevalier official video


Franky Knight is Émilie Simon's fifth studio album, released in December 2011. Many tracks also serve as the soundtrack for La Délicatesse, a film based on the novel of the same title by David Foenkinos, which he co-directed with his brother Stéphane.

Background

When David Foenkinos asked Émilie to write the soundtrack for La Délicatesse she already had some songs in mind for her next album that were very personal and she felt they were a perfect fit for the story.

Franky Knight makes reference to her fiancé and music partner, François Chevallier, who died of complications with Influenza A (H1N1) while on vacation in Athens, Greece. Chevallier died at 29 years, on September 15, 2009 (2009-09-15), a week before the release of their previous work together, The Big Machine. He also worked as sound engineer and producer with Coldplay, Arcade Fire and others.

Track listing

All tracks written by Émilie Simon, except where noted.
