IL VOLO SINGS MORRICONE by Daniela

The news was confirmed by several parties, in less than a month, the new Il Volo CD: 
IL VOLO SINGS MORRICONE, will be released.
The date is on November 5th, but it is already possible to pre-order it.

The album will be available in the following formats: standard CD, Deluxe Version CD, double colored vinyl and double black vinyl.
“Your Love”, taken from Once Upon a Time in the West, a song that Il Volo presented for the first time at the Sanremo 2021 Festival, is available on streaming platforms.
The album Il Volo sings Morricone comes after the concert-event, Il Volo – Tribute to Ennio Morricone, which aired live on Rai 1 last June and which was held at the Verona Arena.
I can’t wait to have this CD.
But I will not order it, because I hope that Il Volo, like every time, will make an instore in Milan, where it will be possible to buy it and also meet our three treasures, and take a picture with them.
Of course, then I’ll tell you everything !!

But now, we observe well the new CD.
First, let’s take a look at the cover.
I have to congratulate those who have thought of presenting the new CD taking a cue from the movie posters.
I really like this idea, in fact the photo of Il Volo is very reminiscent of the poster of “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly”, as you can see.

And now, let’s take a look at the song list:
Tracklist of Il Volo Sings Morricone
1. The Ecstasy of Gold (from “Il Buono, Il Brutto, Il Cattivo”)
2. Your Love (from “C’era una volta il West”)
3. Nella fantasia feat. Andrea Griminelli (from “Mission”)
4. Metti una sera a cena (from “Metti una sera a cena”)
5. Se feat. HAUSER (from “Cinema Paradiso”)
6. La Califfa feat. David Garrett (from “La Califfa”)
7. Conradiana (from “Nostromo”)
8. E più ti penso (from “C’era una volta in America/ Malèna”)
9. Se telefonando
10. Come Sail Away feat. Chris Botti
11. Would He Even No Me Know? (from “Cinema Paradiso”)
12. Amalia por amor
13. Here’s To You (from “Sacco & Vanzetti”)
14. I colori dell’amore
They are all beautiful songs, but let’s take a step by step look.
First of all I see that there are several very good musicians who will perform some music that our kids will sing.
Here in fact:

ANDREA GRIMINELLI , the good Italian flutist, whom we already met during the concert, he will perform the piece n.3

ANDREA GRIMINELLI with flute

STJEPAN HAUSER, the good Croatian cellist, (he is part of the 2 cellos), who will perform the piece n.5.

DAVID GARRET, the good German violinist, will perform the piece n.6.

CHRIS BOTTI, the good American trumpeter, will perform the piece n.10.

…… I would say 4 stars of musicians, who come from different places and countries.
I like this.😉
And now let’s read all the titles of the songs, and immediately we discover that:
LA CALIFFA (6)
COME SAIL AWAY (10)
WOULD HE EVEN NO ME KNOW? (11)
AMALIA POR AMOR (12)
were not heard in the concert, so they’re new songs for us.

What can I say, the other songs I heard in concert and they were magnificent.
Who knows what will be the pieces that Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca will perform as soloists, as they usually do.
Furthermore, rumors say that soon, before the release of the CD, the new video will be online !!
I cannot wait to see the new video, and to hear the new CD.☺❤

And now a little news of the last moment, today Saturday 9 October, at 14:00 (Italian time), Il Volo was interviewed by a journalist.
Here’s the news:
“Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto and Gianluca Ginoble, members of Il Volo, will tell Andrea Spinelli, music critic of QN Quotidiano Nazionale, the emotion of having been the protagonists of the first great post-pandemic live event, the concert dedicated to Maestro Ennio Morricone audience champion also on Rai1.”
Don’t worry, I’m ready for the translation!

  1. Mine is already ordered. I was having my usual ratch (hunt about) on Amazon and found it. Actually I think it chucked itself at me, saying “buy me, buy me”. Ha, as if I needed any persuasion to do so.

    Would be nice to come to Milan, but the way things are heading here in the UK I wouldn’t be in the least bit surprised if we had yet another lockdown. Failing that the UK could be banned from every country in Europe, Australasia and perhaps the rest of the universe.

    Anywhoo, just so long as I get my sticky mitts on the CD. Would be more than happy to pay for a DVD as well. 🙂

    1. Just love the way you write you comments, “Roz”. Didn’t know you were from the UK. Loved to visit there (mostly Scotland) with my second husband. We had many trips to England and Wales as well. Beautiful country. I watch “Escape to the Country” every week and wish I could afford to buy a place there. DeeBee/Dolores. Canada

      1. I originate from Corbridge in the North East. I have spent most of my life in Yorkshire, all but an eleven month spell in London, which I hated. My spiritual home is Silloth on the Cumbrian coast, not far from Carlisle. I would love to move there, but I think I will probably spend the rest of my life on the Hoyland Nether/Hoyland Common area of Barnsley. 🙂

    2. Yes, that’s right, that CD was calling you !!

      Unfortunately we are all waiting for news and to find out what winter awaits us. Let’s be positive.

      1. It didn’t need to yell at me, a gentle prod would have been enough. 😉 Can’t even remember what I was originally looking for either! Ho hum, will probably remember one day, probably at two in the morning. 😉

  2. Daniela, Mine is ordered too. The anticipation is too much to handle, I cannot wait to hear their magnificent voices singing these magnificent pieces of music. And Hauser? My heart is in overdrive.. Now waiting for your translation. Thanks to Pitterpat for the visuals.

    1. Hi RoseMarie, I stopped by the translation to reply to all your comments. I’m halfway through and I can tell you it’s a beautiful interview with very mature responses. You will read soon.

  3. Merci Daniela ,il va sans dire que le CD est pré commandé depuis 8 jours , l’attente est longue mais ce ne sera que meilleur ! Je me suis régalée quand ils ont fait leur concert et le CD va etre génial !Merci de nous tenir toujours au courant des nouvelles

    1. Now, if we could just get Daniela to translate French. I was quite good in High School, but sadly didn’t carry on with my lessons.

      1. Here is the translation from the French:
        “Thank you Daniela, it goes without saying that the CD has been pre-ordered for 8 days, the wait is long but it will only be better! I had a blast when they did their gig and the CD is going to be awesome! Thanks for always keeping us up to date with the news”

        and here is my answer:
        Thank you so much for the compliments, Paule.
        You will have just as much fun when you listen to your cd over and over again and it will arrive soon !!

    2. Merci beaucoup pour les compliments, Paule.
      Vous aurez le même plaisir lorsque vous écouterez votre cd encore et encore et il arrivera bientôt !!

  4. Actually I have ordered 5 from Amazon. One for me and the others for Christmas presents. I would love to be in Milan if there is an in-store, but I am happy you will be there to represent us. You do so much for our group you deserve that opportunity, besides I know we will get a first-hand account of the event.
    Daniela thanks to you and Pat for this update. Now I will anxiously be waiting for the translation of today’s interview. I have already seen it and can’t wait to know what they were saying. ❤️

    1. Damn Mary Jane, you had a wonderful idea, I think your gift will be greatly appreciated by those who receive it. Very, very good!!

      Yes, I really hope there will be the Milan event !!

  5. Me too, Daniele, but I didn’t know there was a deluxe version–now I’ll be worried that I’m missing something! I agree about the cover–I think it’s brilliant and a nice change for them. Plus I’m thinking Ignazio looks like he belongs in a James Bond movie in that photo! And very nice also that they all look so darned handsome. Good luck re Milan!

    1. I think all three of them look like they belong in a James Bond movie! VERY handsome men! 😍

      1. I went first to Amazon.it and looked at the CDs–this was several weeks ago. They had an autographed version and an unautographed version. The autographed version was a couple of euros more than the regular one. With the exchange rate it was on the expensive side for a CD. I checked the tracks. They were both the same. So (since I already have the guys autographs which they gave me in person at a M & G) I ordered the regular one. The next day I looked on Amazon.com. They also had two versions–and they were MUCH cheaper than the ones on the Amazon.it site, even with the exchange rate figured in. Plus the postage was much, much less. So I cancelled the Italian order and ordered it on Amazon.com.
        Here is my thoughts on the autographs–They tend to scribble their names even if you get them one on one when they are not signing thousands of CDs. I wonder what those autographs will look like after they have been signing them for hours?? Will you even be able to tell which one is which? I have a hard time figuring that out with the ones I have!

      2. My thoughts on autographs are very much like yours Penina. I know when I had to autograph my book what started out as legible (for me that is) ended up looking like a demented spider that my cat had squashed with her paw! Needless to say there were not as many books as there will be CD’s. 🙂

    2. Fingers crossed for Milan, Judi.
      Yes I really like the CD cover, and Ignazio, wow wow !!
      I don’t know what the de luxe version includes, I’ll try to know.

  6. Thanks, Daniela, and Patti! You are two great ladies!! Right now I’m still awaiting my DVD from Detroit PBS but will get on to Amazon and order the new CD! Possibly the Deluxe version???

    1. Dolores, both CDs will come and you won’t go a day without listening to the beautiful voices of our young men.
      Thank you for your compliments!

  7. I, too have pre-ordered the CD. So far, my favorite song has been “Conradiana”, but who knows, after I get my CD and play it over and over again, several other songs will become favorites also. Thank you, Daniela, for being our eyes and ears in Italy. I always enjoy your translations and eagerly await them.

    1. Maija, I also like Conradiana very much, she is powerful, poignant!
      From Milan, if there will be, I will make you a complete report.
      But in a few days there is the translation of the interview, really very beautiful.

  8. Thanks to Daniela and Pat for keeping us current. I’ve pre-ordered multiple cds for gifts and also moi. Hoping to get the dvd too soon, but most anxiously awaiting the 2022 tour schedule dates. Do we even dare to hope it will happen?!

    1. Good Sally! Listen, from the interview I’m translating, there is something leaking out about the American tour, not much but it’s always something. Wait and you will read.

  9. Thanks Pat and Daniela for the latest information on Il Volo’s newest CD. I think it is a great cover also. I hope Daniela that you will be able to buy your CD in Milan and once again see Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca. It has to be a great experience! I was all set to pre-order my CD but I’m wondering if I should wait to see what is on the Deluxe Version. I only see the standard CD on Amazon.

    1. You’re welcome, Margaret. I pre-ordered my copy on amazon.it (Amazon in Italy) and is said it will be an autographed copy. You might check there.

    2. Margaret, I sincerely hope that the event in Milan will take place, in the meantime I have already alerted my husband by saying “In early November let’s go to Milano!”
      I believe the Deluxe version includes CD signing.

  10. Thank you Daniela and Pat. I can’t wait the new CD, I’m sure it will be magnificent. I also hope Daniela you will be able to particippate at the instore in Milan and share your impressions with us.

    1. Jolanta, if Milan will be there (I hope they will sing again from the balcony) I will report everything step by step and I hope to have the opportunity to exchange a few words with them !!

  11. Thank you Daniela and Pat for the update on the cd and the upcoming video. I have pre ordered my cd and cannot wait to hear it. Every morning when I open Facebook I hope there will be news of the 2022 world tour starting in North America. They have teased us with venues in Toronto, New York and LA. But still no other news about the other venues and cities on the tour. Anxiously awaiting news. Also looking forward to your translation of their latest interview. Hope Italy is doing well with the pandemic . it seems from photos and videos there are now gatherings , concerts and I do not see a lot of masks. Hoping that means the concerts in Verona and Taormina will happen. Thanks to you both for all you do for the fans.

    1. Janet, the interview will come soon, it’s almost over and there is a lot to read, it will amaze you.
      You can also find some news of the American tour.
      A few more days of patience !!
      Yes, everything is fine in Italy, even if the rules are still very strict.

  12. Thank you Danieila for keeping us informed. Appreciate all you do to keep us informed about the sweetest and sexiest guys ever!

  13. Well fanlings guess what I found on Amazon UK? The MP3 version of Your Love is available for 99 pence. Roughly 30 seconds sample is available, which may I say if the rest is anything to go by, will be well worth the cost of the CD.

    Did I buy the MP3 version? Well no actually, I don’t want to spoil myself, especially after coughing up a small fortune on Andrea Rieu and Eric Bogle MP3 goodies. I have a somewhat eclectic taste. Anywhoo it won’t be long before the entire thing hits my letterbox, so I can be patient. 🙂
