May 23, 2023—Today, acclaimed international electronic artist French 79—the musical alias of French producer, remixer and songwriter Simon Henner—premieres the video for his track, “You Always Say,” featuring singer and composer Olivia Merilahti of The Dø. The video was directed by a pair of Henner’s lifelong friends and creative collaborators, who go by the name Cauboyz.
“You Always Say” appears on Henner’s new album, Teenagers, which was released earlier this month. Like its predecessors (Olympic and Joshua), Teenagers is an album where keyboards and analog synthesizers are predominant. However, the new project reveals a much more personal and musically ambitious side of Henner, showcasing his sonic evolution as French 79. Watch Henner’s previously released videos for “Burning Legend” and “Life Is Like” HERE and HERE.
In support of the new music, Henner confirms an extensive run of North American tour dates. Kicking off on August 4, the headline dates include visits to New York’s Racket, DC’s Black Cat, Boston’s Paradise and Chicago’s Lincoln Hall as well as an appearance at Osheaga Music & Arts Festival in Montréal.
