Benjamin Biolay: La Révolution

An interesting archive clip of Benjamin Biolay has surfaced, with the song La Révolution from 1997 emerging

Biolay is of course currently one of France's most successful solo artists, his 2012 Vengeance album his most recent.

He collaborated with Vanessa Paradis on her most recent album Love Songs and has previously worked with some of the biggest established names in French music including  Henri Salvador, Juliette Greco ,  Françoise Hardy and Carla Bruni.

He recently featured on the La Bande à Renaud compilation, with his interpretationof the Renaud song Deuxième génération.

The clip for  La Révolution  predates Biolay's 2001 Rose Kennedy debut album by several years.

The song La Révolution hasn't featured on his albums, and the video shows M. Biolay cutting a very different figure to the one he does now.

The track has not been made available to embed, but it can be seen here on YouTube
