CHÉRIE CHERRY | L'INTERNATIONALE
On the eve of the federal elections, Cherry Chérie releases it's version of L'Internationale, a revolutionary song, emblem of the labour movement, written in 1870 by Eugène Pottier in the wake of the Paris commune.
It was during their China tour in March 2019 that the idea came up to make a Quebec and modern version of a text that dates back 150 years but whose purpose and values resonate more than ever today. To their knowledge, this is the first cover of L'International since it went into the public domain on September 30, 2017.
This project (directed by Jesse Mac Cormack) is a creative break for Cherry Chérie, as they are currently in the studio working on a new album that set to be released next year.
It should also be mentioned that the song was translated into several languages and was the national anthem of the USSR for 20 years after the revolution.
