Last Thursday, November 10, the Aterciopelados premiered through the digital platforms ‘Volver a solreír', a song that brings together two of the most emblematic voices of Latin American rock: Andrea Echeverri and Rubén Albarrán, singer of the Mexican group < b>Café Tacvba.

This theme, in addition to having the collaboration of other artists such as Lengualerta, Paloma del Cerro b>, Tatiana Samper and Múcura, becomes the invitation for this 2022 of Cantoalagua, a water protection initiative created by Héctor Buitrago 12 years ago and which has joined thousands of people around the world in events for the care and reconnection with water.

“This song has a positive and post-pandemic connotation of taking off your mask, as well as reuniting with others (…) The beginning of the song has to do with meditation and reconnecting with nature, specifically with the Water. The song was written by many people, among them Max Páramo, who had the original idea, and later we joined Rubén, Aterciopelados and Lisandro Romero, a Mexican rapper from the Comca'ac indigenous community, located north of Mexico”, Echeverri commented in an interview with Infobae Colombia.

And although they have met many times on different stages, this is the first song for which Aterciopelados and Rubén Albarrán collaborate, which also becomes a special event for these musicians and defenders of the environment.

Regarding the video for 'Volver a solreír', Andrea Echeverri told Infobae Colombia that, among many other ideas, this piece highlights “spiritual reinvention in these troubled and contradictory times”.

This particular audiovisual proposal was directed and produced by Simón Hernández and Santiago Caicedo, who were inspired by musical television shows in the 80s and experimented with wool and its transformation possibilities, creating a miniature world with 'Amigurumis, characters created in crochet.< /p>

Another of the topics that the vocalist of Aterciopelados touched on with this medium was what projects the group has in the short and medium term.

“We have many new songs, but we must see how they are We launched because everything is so strange now, because the dynamics in the music industry have changed a lot and now it is no longer known whether to release singles or albums. What I do assure you is that there are many plans for the next 2023 that you are going to love, ”she added.

Finally, Andrea Echeverri, who also clarified to Infobae Colombia the controversy over the madrazo to Guns N' Roses, answered the question of what they think they need to do as a band and what they would never do:

“I think we're doing very well, like we're ripe and half-cooked, but we're enjoying it. In addition, we realize that the years bring many things, a structure and a lot of security, so we feel very good. I think that the only thing we need is to see how far and when all this goes, and to continue proposing. As for what we would never do, I don't know what to say, because we are open to many things, but also closed to others. I've even done reggaeton, I don't know if you remember a song called 'Métetelo', because even though I'm against hypersexualization, that doesn't mean I can't make a song of this genre singing against said problem. ”, he concluded.
