(CNN Spanish) – Natalia Lafourcade has a new album. The Mexican singer presented the second volume of her project “A song for Mexico” on Friday.

Lafourcade reunited several of his friends to present an album that contains gems of Latin American music, brought to the present day.

For this production, the singer-songwriter reverted songs like «A hundred years»By Pedro Infante, one of his favorite interpreters.

Lafourcade said this is one of his favorite songs from the production. For this version, Lafourcade had the voice of Pepe Aguilar.

«A hundred years it’s one of my favorite (tracks) (on the album), that’s why we made it simple. I really love that song, I love the voice of Pepe (Aguilar) “, said Lafourcade recently spoke with Zona Pop CNN, our pop culture podcast.

This was a topic that she fell in love with as a child.

«The first time I hear A hundred years I felt the world stopped. I listened to Pedro Infante’s voice after a deep sigh, that unmistakable guitar chord that sounds from the first moment. I thought about love and how everything revolves around it, it makes us die and be born. It gives meaning to life. I wondered if one day I could sing that song and perform it with so much feeling, “Lafourcade said in Instagram in April this year.

And although he does not consider himself a Mexican regional singer, he did give himself the license to flirt with these rhythms.

Lafourcade: An album that sings to life and death

One of the goals of the singer-songwriter with «A song for Mexico, vol. two” it was to bring music legends to the present and make their music generate extrasensory feelings.

«It is an album that encapsulates the music scene, or part of the music scene, that we live in today. To the great ones, to the legends of the past, but those of the present as well. Encapsulate Chavela Vargas without Chavela Vargas being present. There is Frida Kahlo, there is Diego Rivera », he says.

«It’s an album that tastes like mole to me, that you feel like corn. You feel in the country, you feel the land, you feel the city, you feel Mexico alive there. (An album) that sings to him as well as to life, he sings death to him, he sings his pain, he sings to love, heartbreak, joy, “said Lafourcade.

The collaborations in «A song for Mexico, vol. two”

In a natural follow-up, for this second volume, Natalia Lafourcade recruited artists such as Jorge Drexler, Mon Laferte, Aida Cuevas, Carlos Rivera, Rubén Blades or Caetano Veloso.

Artists whom – Lafourcade says – did not have to convince to join the project.

The singer says that, for example, Mon Laferte was always «very concerned about this project, I was very aware of what was going to happen, that they were going to have whatever they want with me here. This that has been very nice ».

With Caetano Veloso it was something similar, he says.

“I remember that he was going to record a long time ago, a year ago, when we were supposed to finish the album and then the pandemic came and we put it on pause. But he had already told us yes. And a year passed. A year later we spoke to him again and he said yes, send me a song and he went in to record, “Lafourcade told Zona Pop CNN.

As with the first volume, «A song for Mexico, vol. 2 ”, will benefit the Son Jarocho Documentation Center, in Jatiplán, Morelos, which was destroyed during the 2017 earthquake in Mexico.

«This project is born from a space that collapses due to the earthquakes, due to the intention of a community that we want to come to help. We meet another community in which we learn its wealth, we learn its world, its universe, “Lafourcade told Zona Pop CNN.

«A song for Mexico, vol. 1 “, won the Latin Grammy 2020 for” album of the year “and the 2021 Grammy award for” best regional Mexican album (including Texan). “
