Pat and I had already prepared a post on the latest news concerning the recording of the new record, but today was published an interview made to Michele Torpedine, it is really interesting and at the end it communicates some really good news about our guys.
The interview is long and at the beginning they are questions about Torpedine’s book, of which he seems to want to do a second part.
Later on, he talks about the non-recognition of certain artists and at this point Torpedine starts talking about IL VOLO and from there I will translate word by word.
QUESTION = Not everyone is like that.
Torpedine = There are exceptions, and I was lucky enough to meet one …. or rather three: the boys of IL VOLO, as we understand from the title of the book, dedicated to them.
When I met them and put them together as a trio, they were so young ……. think that 10 years have already passed!
With Gianluca, Piero and Ignazio and their families, good people, a relationship was born that goes well beyond the professional one.
Together we joke, we laugh, then we are serious, collecting world successes: but the human side, their being true and clean, for me is an added value that, in this environment, is a rare commodity.
QUESTION = What is there in the near future of the boys?
TORPEDINE = They are leaving for Lebanon, they will perform for a Christmas concert in an area of peace and, at the end of February, will release a new record with the most beautiful songs in the world.
QUESTION = The Grande Amore?
TORPEDINE = Arrived for Piero, who is living a beautiful story with Valentina (daughter of Massimiliano Allegri), a true relationship, capable of transforming him for the better.
I hope it’s a contagious thing (he laughs) I’m single, looking for my soul mate.
I’m really curious about to know your opinions on what Torpedine said !!
Here is the original post:
We are all awaiting the release of the new CD of the guys, and from the last messages they have posted, it seems that the CD has been completed and soon, we can hear it, but let’s go with order …..
This article just came out, written by the good Antonella Esposito, I will translate it for you.
IL VOLO from “Noche Sin Dia”, “Duets” and the tour. All the news.
Il Volo is about to return. Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca have posted some shots that portray them in the recording room with the producer Michela Canova. Meanwhile, “Duets Forever” came out for which they collaborated with the unleashed Cristina D’Avena.
Il Volo is preparing a return in style. After the breath of news with the song “Noche sin dia” which in the summer had shown the Latin American spirit of the three artists, was released yesterday “Duets Forever” last album by Cristina D’Avena that collects her greatest hits and for which the boys of Il Volo have lent their voices.
The “Noche sin dia” by Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca
We had left them about to take off the elegant Armani black tuxedos to wear leather with nails, stylish sunglasses and alluring Hawaiian shirts. This is the unusual atmosphere of “Noche sin dia”, the summer teaser launched exclusively for the Latin market that saw Il Volo dueting with Gente de Zona, a well-known reggae group.
The announcement of the single CD had a little ‘destabilized the minds of lovers of pop-lyric, iconically attributed to the three and who had watched them as children all the way to the conquest of a worldwide reputation. Subsequently, some clues had suggested that the page of lyric music would not be completely abandoned and so it was.
THE 2018 TOUR
In fact, the second round of the Tour 2018 will start in December and, after the Italian dates of July, will see them engaged in another five stages in Eastern Europe. Again with the repertoire dedicated to “Notte Magica” and again with the unmissable voices of the guys from Il Volo.
Here are all the stops of the European Tour 2018:
12/08/2018 Lodz, Poland Atlas Arena
10/12/2018 Budapest, Hungary Papp Laszlo Sportarena
11/12/2018 Bratislava, Slovak NTC
12/20/2018 Ljubljana, Slovenia Dvorana Stožice
12/21/2018 Zagreb, Croatia Arena Zagreb
THE NEW ALBUM
The last post published by Il Volo on social media dates back to yesterday. From the group’s Instagram page you can see the three smiling guys, in the recording room, in the company of the record producer and arranger Michele Canova. The caption reads:
“WE’RE COMING BACK! MANY SURPRISES ON ARRIVAL”
“DUETS” and the meeting with Cristina D’Avena
Waiting to know what these irrepressible talents have in store, the trio has enjoyed singing the well known “D’Artagnan and the King’s Musketeers” alongside of the Queen of TV, theme songs for kids. Performing a piece with Cristina D’Avena represented a true return to childhood and at the same time the demonstration that it is really true that everyone sings Cristina. You can listen to this singular version on Spotify.
So many novelties are boiling in the pot. It is unclear whether in the input Il Volo is spreading alludes to the release of the new album, in which – we remember – should be important names among the collaborations, including Ermal Meta and Tiziano Ferro. What shines through is a restless and irrepressible enthusiasm.
Whatever the nature of the surprise, it is to be expected so much by these artists that even in different shapes and facets they continue to capture the admiration of endless crowds of fans, coming from every part of the globe and belonging to different generations. Il Volo above all continues to generate sincere affection in those who believe in them and a strong sense of sharing. Good guys.
….. but to whom will have referred in the article, when they spoke of “fans coming from every part of the globe and belonging to different generations” …….
Here they are in the recording studio with MICHELE CANOVA.
P = So guys, we are in the studio with our producer.
G = The great Michele Canova
P = Actually he is a personal trainer.
G = Exact (laugh)
CANOVA = Mom, what a face!
But who is Michele Canova?
He is a record producer, arranger, composer and Italian sound engineer.
Lately, the most successful Italian singers have been produced by him.
Moments of relaxation in the recording studio, together with Francesco Renga, hint at one of his songs.
I would say that there is so much news they are adding and the works in the recording room are not finished yet but will have to be temporarily abandoned due to the tour.
What do you think of the Christmas concert in Lebanon?
I think that to be finished by February, the guys will have to work a lot, also considering the commitments made.
Come on guys!!
