Peter One, the sixty seven year old born in Cote d'Ivoire current Nashville resident musician that recently returned to music in his retirement, has just released a brand new single. "Cherie Vico" (sung in both French and English) leans more into his afropop roots while keeping a foot squarely in the country/folk world. It has a base of 70's style AM radio country/folk with afropop drums, giving the song a much more jubilant feel than you typically get in a song this chill. It's a captivating and fun song that is sure to engage just about any listener with a heart.
Peter One says of his new single:
“‘Cherie Vico’ is a love story. It's a song that was inspired by one of my cousins. He just sang it acapella, and I loved the song and decided to put music to it and add the English part. Everything is in my native tongue and the English part is my own creation. Vico is actually short for Victorine. Cherie means 'my dear.' My dear Victorine, my dear Vico. Come back.”
You can listen to "Cherie Vico" below. Come Back to Me is set for release May 5 on Verve Forecast, and can be pre-ordered here. For more on Peter One, check out the artist's website.
