Yannick Noah: Ma Colère

A new track Ma Colère from reggae star (and former tennis star) Yannick Noah.

It's easy to read a political message in Noah's song, and he's always been a politically involved performer.

The song's already been criticised by  Marine Le Pen, leader of the far-right National Front party whose politics are referred to in the lyrics ("My anger is not a front, and it's not national...my anger had the honour of fighting theirs")

It comes ahead of a new album. Noah's last release was the 2012 Hommage collection, an album of covers of Bob Marley songs, and it was a hugely successful release that caught the public's affection for both the music of Bob Marley and for Noah himself.

His last album of original songs, entitled Frontières, came out in 2010.

 Yannick Noah's new album is expected at the end of May
