Vasco Rossi for his 18th album “We are here”He wanted – not surprisingly – to place himself at the center of the Enso which in Japanese means circle, a symbol of strength, light and harmony. All features contained in the ten unreleased tracks of the disc that comes out on Friday palindrome 12.11.21. An album “very spontaneous and direct, amused and entertaining and – adds Vasco – un album Classic Rock, in an obstinate and contrary direction, as De Andrè would say, with respect to the trends in vogue. Played, recorded, good at the premiere: rock that doesn’t need tricks or devilry to provoke and excite. The songs were born to be sung live. I wrote them thinking about the live shows, and now I can’t wait to get back on stage, I’m no longer in my skin, now that 2022 is approaching ”. The new songs also draw a personal balance: “The beauty is this: understand, evaluate, interpret the time one lives above all getting to know each other. It’s always me, with some more awareness! Which, of course, does not console. But there is no turning back”Said the rocker.
The songs range from visionary rock “fantapolitic-a-pocalyptic” to “XI Commandment“To love at the time of the fluid society in”Love love”, Written with Roberto Casini. There is no shortage of intense ballads such as “I found you”, “One more breath“And the hard rock of”You are mad at me“. For the music many authors and long-time friends such as Tullio Ferro, Roberto Casini and Gaetano Curreri. But also new entries such as Vince Pàstano, Andrea Righi, Andrea Fornili, Saverio Grandi, Saverio Principini and Simone Sello. There is also a little bit of Guido Elmi, in the music of the rock song “Tu ci ha l’hai con me” that he had begun to write with Vince Pàstano. The arrangements of the songs entrusted halfway to Celso Valli and Pàstano who, having joined the band as a guitarist at the time of Elmi, has been in charge for some years of arranging the songs for the live shows.
Vasco is already screened on Live 2022 which will start in spring: “I generally live in the past or in the future, I am never present. On the stage, on the other hand, I am there, I am there, I am present ”. Tour kicks off from 20 May in Trento for a special event to continue with the dates already sold out and rescheduled for 2022 (sold out Milan, Florence, Rome and Imola). And with the new ones in the stadiums of other 5 cities for which tickets are starting to run low: already sold out Bari and Turin, there are still more for Naples, Ancona and Messina.
