French 79 returns with new album 'Teenagers' May 5

International electronic artist French 79—the musical alias of French producer, remixer and songwriter Simon Henner—is set to release a new record Teenagers on May 5.
In conjunction, French 79 premieres the album’s latest single “Like is Like” today alongside an accompanying music video. The video was directed by a pair of Henner’s lifelong friends and creative collaborators who go by the name Cauboyz. Listen to/share the song HERE and watch/share the video HERE.
Of the video, Cauboyz says, “‘Life is Like’ tells of a musician’s journey. If the music video embodies three phases of his life, it helps us give a glimpse at the intimacy of a character through a window. Here, architecture and time seem to intertwine and create a monolithic sequence. The perception of time evolves with age. The tender age was yesterday and yet, it is already so far away. What is left of our childhood? From the time when dreams were as powerful as life. Where building an ego was as much as when the architect completes a bridge. What is left of our adolescence? Our first experiences, our fleeting loves? These creative moments resonate in us as adults, with nostalgia driving our creation instincts. This music is so heady that the synths’ reverb seems to echo in these private places. The story of a piece, from its first dream to the release of the album. The position of the musician, at the center of our lives through his.”
