Franky Knight is Émilie Simon's fifth studio album, released in December 2011. Many tracks also serve as the soundtrack for La Délicatesse (fr), a film based on the novel of the same title by David Foenkinos, which he co-directed with his brother Stéphane.
When David Foenkinos asked Émilie to write the soundtrack for La Délicatesse she already had some songs in mind for her next album that were very personal and she felt they were a perfect fit for the story.
The lead single from the album, "Mon Chevalier", was released for digital download on November 7, 2011 (2011-11-07). The music video was uploaded to YouTube on November 2, 2011 (2011-11-02). It was directed by David and Stéphane Foenkinos.
