Michael Franti, who has collaborated on songs from Zap Mama’s albums Supermoon and Seven, featured her on his latest record, All Rebel Rockers. Describing the track, entitled “High Low,” Franti said, “That’s a song that I wrote with Marie Daulne from Zap Mama. We were in Belgium at Marie’s house. I picked up the guitar, and we both started talking about our mothers. That song is about the experience of me meeting my mother — my birth mother, I should say. I didn’t know her, and I met her when I was 22. It’s about the highs and lows of going through the emotions of meeting my mom, who I never knew.”

You can hear the track on Michael Franti & Spearhead’s website.

On Tuesday, the French newspaper Le Parisien announced the release of ReCreation in France on April 26th. The piece focused on Zap Mama’s collaboration with French actor Vincent Cassel on “Non Non Non” and
