Etienne Daho is one of the impressive list of French performers who are paying tribute to Denis Quilliard, best known to the world als Jacno. Once part of the Stinky Toys, later Elli & Jacno and writer of several French classics like Amoureux Solitaires and Je t’aime tant. The album is called Jacno Future, it will be released June 6 and sports covers by Daho, Thomas Dutronc, Dominique A,  Miossec and Stereo Total, among others. The first single is Amoureux Solitaires, a duet between Daho and Calypso Valois, Jacno’s daughter. Who made her recording debut last year on an EP by Alexandre Chatelard, who sounds a lot like Daho and Jacno. With added Gainsbourg and Francis Lai-touches. Ssso seductive.
