New LITA Release | Françoise Hardy 5-Album Reissue Series

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!

All five albums are available for preorder on both CD & deluxe LP now.

  • CDs will be out October 16th.
  • Deluxe LPs will be out January 29th, 2016.

There is also an option to collect all five in one format at a discounted price! This option is available on each album release page.

  • The complete CD set is $50.
  • The complete LP set is $90.
