ALLA FINE DEL MONDO is the title of EROS RAMAZZOTTI’s new single to be released this Friday, March 27th in 60 countries all over the world, in anticipation of his new album called PERFETTO.
ALLA FINE DEL MONDO is a surprising song, that not only confirms the unique style of the most popular Italian singer in the world, but also surprises his international audience with hints and folk and modern country sounds, with peculiar acoustic instruments that enhance the song’s immediate catchiness.
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 windmills 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.
ALLA FINE DEL MONDO‘s music was written and produced by Eros Ramazzottiand Claudio Guidetti. The pair has produced the whole album and Claudio is enthusiast about this project: « I’ve been working with Eros since 1995 and never before have I heard him sing so well as in this record: he strikes me and moves me deeply with his vocal intensity and he is absolutely in a great shape!». The lyrics of the song were instead penned by Eros himself Francesco Bianconi and Kaballà.
Simultaneously with the single, Eros is launching a video directed Jacopo Rondinelli, shot between the Almeria desert in Spain and the suburbs of Milan. The director set the video in the imaginary world of a child whose fantasy runs from school desks and family life to his own whimsical world. The young protagonist dreams of being a sheriff in a western movie, and becomes the hero of a story where he sets off to rescue a beautiful girl from two evil characters. The legendary Far West becomes theperfect setting for a tender children story with a happy ending at a school party.
Including the single and 13 other songs, PERFETTO follows the worldwide success of NOI, the album certified 4xPlatinum in Italy, Platinum in Spain and Switzerland, Gold in Germany, France, Russia, Belgium , Austria, Romania , Hungary, Czech Republic and Venezuela.
