The Liberal Party of Canada is under fire after their campaign song recorded in French was poorly translated.

According to CTV News, the party called on Canadian band The Strumbellas to use their song 'One Hand Up' during the election campaign. The group translated and sang the song in French.

Many online commenters pointed out on social media that the song - whose title is `Une Main haute' in French - was incomprehensible.

A Liberal spokesperson says the song will be re-recorded.
