(ANSA) - ROME, 04 DEC - "I came back completely changed - adds the singer-songwriter - from this trip to the 1920s. My conception of making music is upset, everything I thought before has turned upside down. Initially I concentrated only on my obsession to closely follow all the smallest details of the work. Today, thanks to this '69 - '90 - '20 trilogy, I realized that it was all just the entrance to what I am about to propose ".
Roaring sequin parties, black swing, pinstripe dresses, this is the mood of Achille Lauro's new album: 1920 - Achille Lauro & The Untouchable Band, out on December 4th on all digital platforms and in stores in cd and vinyl format.
The side project closes the repack trilogy of the past: 1990, a tribute to Dance music, and 1969 - Achille Idol Rebirth, with a punk-rock soul, certified Platinum by Fimi / Gfk.
The new album takes inspiration from the desire for lightness born during the Prohibition of the early 1900s and from the musical atmospheres that found their roots in those years.
The album consists of 8 tracks, including unreleased songs and reissues in full 1920s jazz rhythm, a dialogue between past and present.
Cover, like My Funny Valentine, Tu vuò fa 'l'americano and Jingle Bell Rock;
unpublished, including Little Sophie, Bad and Chicago;
re-editions, such as Cadillac 1920 and Bvlgari Black Swing.
Achille Lauro adds to the project the collaboration of other Italian artists: Gigi D'Alessio, Izi and Gemitaiz, Annalisa, now alongside Achille Lauro since the exhibition in Sanremo.
And it will be Jingle Bell Rock feat.
Annalisa, the first single from the new project, on the radio since December 4th.
For Achille Lauro this is the first experience of producing an entire live album for the artist: after the live in Taranto with the orchestra of Magna Grecia directed by Maestro Piero Romano, Achille Lauro records an entire musical project with the Untouchable Jazz Band , led by Maestro Dino Plasmati.
The side project will be told by Achille Lauro on Monday 14 December, 7.00 pm, during the digital event on Feltrinelli Live.
