The new Eros Ramazzotti album is titled PERFETTO and will be released worldwide by Universal Music on May12th.
Explaining his choice of title, Eros says: “When you finish working on a project, or anything else, you look at it, give it a final touch and then say Perfetto! So there, I decided to call my album like that, with an expression that is understood and used all over the world”.
“Perfetto” includes 14 new songs recorded in Los Angeles, Milan and Rome and produced by Eros Ramazzotti and long time partner Claudio Guidetti , with collaborations of high standard musicians such as drummer Vinnie Colaiuta ( Joni Mitchell, Herbie Hancock, Quincy Jones, Leonard Cohen,…) and guitar player Michael Landau (Michael Jackson, James Taylor, Miles Davis,…) who have also worked with Eros on many other occasions. This record marks a great return for Eros to a truly musical experience, with a lot of accomplished musicians playing on his new songs and far less electronic sounds than most records of nowadays.
“Perfetto” follows the worldwide success of “Noi”, certified 4xPlatinum in Italy, Platinum in Spain and Switzerland, Gold in Germany, France, Russia, Belgium , Austria, Romania , Hungary, Czech Republic and Venezuela.
“Perfetto” will be released in 60 countries all over the world, along with the leading single “Alle Fine Del Mondo”, whose sales and radio debut date has been set for March 27th.
Eros will be touring the world extensively starting from September until late spring next year. The first leg of the tour has been announced and tickets are available for sale. A second leg will be announced soon.
The single explores the theme of what one would do for love, even going to the ends of the earth: crossing boundless prairies, dangerous places and unexplored territories. Like Don Quixote, we are willing to fight against wind mills and imaginary or real giants just to follow our dreams. For love, we would set ourselves free like a “rolling stone”, as Bob Dylan said, or move the sky, “the sun and other stars” as we read in Dante’s Divine Comedy.
