Frogtoon Musique - Informations sur la chanson: Brazil
“Brazil” is Declan McKenna’s debut single. It was initially self-released through his own YouTube channel on December 2014. It gained international recognition after its re-release in August 2015, after McKenna won Glastonbury Festival’s Emerging Talent Competition.
“Brazil” is a protest song criticizing FIFA, the international governing body of association football, and their decision of awarding the 2014 FIFA World Cup to Brazil, without addressing the extensive and deep poverty affecting Brazilians and “doing anything for the communities.”
Although the song was just intended to be a dig at corruption, it took a whole new life with the FIFA corruption scandal that emerged in 2015 and has been deeply associated with the downfall from office of Sepp Blatter, FIFA’s president from 1998 to 2015.
"'It was a bit of a weird one. I generally come up with the melodies and guitar riffs before I come up with any lyrics, so first I had this guitar riff that I really liked and then I came up with the melody but didn’t have any words for it. Then it kind of just happened! I started hearing things about the FIFA World Cup and the corruption around it. I don’t really know why or how it happened, but I ended up writing a song about it and it turned out to be the one that I recorded and released. I was just seeing all this stuff around and like most songs, I was hearing so much about it that I couldn’t really avoid writing about it.'"
