In 1999, Air composed the score for the film The Virgin Suicides, and an accompanying album was released in February 2000. The album peaked at number 34 in France and was certified gold by the SNEP.[4][9] "Playground Love", the album's only single, peaked at number 25 in the UK.[1] The band's second studio album, 10 000 Hz Legend, was released in May 2001, peaking at number seven in France and charting highly in several European countries.[4] 10 000 Hz Legend produced four singles: "Radio #1", which peaked at number 31 in the UK,[1] "Don't Be Light", "How Does It Make You Feel?" and "People in the City". City Reading (Tre Storie Western), a collaboration with Italian writer Alessandro Baricco, was released as Air's third studio album in May 2003. Talkie Walkie followed in January 2004, peaking at number three in France.[4] It became the band's first number-one album in Ireland and received a gold certification from the Irish Recorded Music Association (IRMA).[6][10] The album's lead single, "Cherry Blossom Girl", became a top 15 hit in Finland and charted in several other European countries.[7] Pocket Symphony, the band's fifth studio album, was released in March 2007, peaking at number eight in France and producing two singles: "Once Upon a Time" and "Mer du Japon".[4]
