"Renaud chante Brassens" (released in March 1996) is an album by French singer Renaud featuring cover versions of the songs of Georges Brassens. The original songs date from between 1952 and 1961.[1] Public reaction to Renaud's reprises was generally positive even from Brassens fans.[2] It was to be the last Renaud album for some six years until his rehabilitation from a period of alcoholism and his massive renewed success with Manhattan-Kaboul.

The video for Je suis un voyou inserted a suitably dressed Renaud as a character into original black-and-white footage of Brassens singing the song.[3]

In 1997 Renaud chante Brassens was re-sold along with live album Tournée D'Enfer and best-of CD The Meilleur Of Renaud as three album discount re-packaging offer [4]
