Soprano returns with a new album and a powerful political message. The artist releases his eighth studio album, “Freedom,” this week. On June 20, he expressed his concerns to RTL about the rise of the RN in France, which he continues to call the National Front to recall the origins of the party, following its victory in the last European elections.

Ten days before the first round of the legislative elections, organized after the dissolution of the National Assembly by the President of the Republic, the 45-year-old singer recognizes that many people feel “lost” in this polarized political climate.

“Like many people, we are all lost,” he says. “For us to reach the point where some are voting for divisive parties, it is because those who were in power did not do their job. Young people are no longer interested in politics, even though voting remains one of the freedoms we have today.”

Soprano, a father, says he is particularly worried about the younger generations who no longer have the desire to vote. “Many young people ask themselves: ‘Why vote? Nothing has changed.” They are defeatists. Our generation must give them hope and strength to build a better future.”

In her new hit “Freedom,” Soprano laments that the world has become “crazy” and “sad” and hopes to find freedom again. However, faced with the rise of extremist parties in Europe which “gives him chills”, the singer has the feeling of regressing, as at the time when groups like IAM, NTM, or the rapper Diams were already addressing these issues.

“I say to myself: ‘Damn, we haven’t made any progress,’” he laments.
