Andrea Bocelli a Tuscan pride
The Tuscan opera singer and international superstar Andrea Bocelli, announces the release of his brand new album and video, where the living legend gives his unique voice to some of the best loved music from the movies ever composed.
The new album, Cinema, will be released on October 23rd featuring themes from Doctor Zhivago, The Godfather, Gladiator, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and many more, as well the popular songs from stage musicals, immortalized by their film version, such as West Side Story and Evita.
The album comes from the creativity of a quartet of friends including Andrea Bocelli, David Foster, Tony Renis and Humberto Gatica.
The new single, Nelle tue mani (Now we are free), is taken from the soundtrack of the Gladiator, Ridley Scott‘s blockbuster.
The artist from Lajatico, a small and quiet village of Tuscany, says that “the song is a piece of great effect with the pathos of the movie, evoking the peculiarities of moral character: brave and loyal heroes that everyone would like to have as friend, father, husband and son. “
The video was filmed in the desert of El Mirage, California, and played by two-time Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner John Travolta, and the sons of Andrea Bocelli, Virginia (for the first time in a video) and Matthew. The direction was entrusted to Gary Morbioli.
