Françoise Hardy is a 1965 studio album by French pop singer Françoise Hardy. It was released in France in November 1965, on LP Disques Vogue (FH 3). Like many of Hardy's earlier albums, it was released with no title, except for her name on the cover but this album has therefore colloquially become known by the title of its most successful song, "L’Amitié" ("The Friendship").
