Early Saturday morning, singer Alejandro Sanz (Madrid, 54 years old) published a message on his Twitter account in which he confessed to his almost 20 million followers that he was not in a good mood, which led many fans of the singer to worry about the state of his mental health. "I'm not well. I don't know if this helps, but I want to say it. I'm sad and tired," the singer from Madrid began; "In case anyone else thinks you have to always be a sea breeze or a firework on a summer night. I'm working to make it happen to me... I will get to the stage and something inside will tell me what to do. But sometimes I don't even want to be. Literally. Just to be honest. For not entering the useless noise. I know there are people who feel that way. If it serves you, I feel the same." The message already accumulates more than 24,000 retweets and 239,000 likes, and includes many responses of thanks for making visible, from his position, such an important issue.
Aware of the concern of his followers after the message and after the series of speculations and doubts about the possible cancellation of the tour that will tour Spain this summer (and whose start date is next June 3 in Pamplona), the singer of Corazón partío has wanted to return to pronounce and reassure his community.

No, I'm fine. I don't know if this is of any use but I want to say it. I am sad and tired. In case anyone else thinks you have to always be a sea breeze or a firework on a summer night. I'm working to make it happen to me... I will arrive at the stages and something inside me...

"These days I have received a lot of love in different ways and I appreciate them all very much," he began saying in this new message. "I've had a strong outbreak this weekend and although the light hasn't come yet, it looks like a firefly has woken up in my chest. I don't want to suspend the tour because I think with the right help and a little understanding and support at the shows we're going to pull it off. Besides, I think that locking myself up is not a good idea. Thanks for the warmth. Let's go for tomorrow. The sun is on its way."
Just a few days before it was his ex-wife, the psychologist Raquel Perera – who maintained a sentimental relationship with the singer from 2012 to 2019 and with whom he has two children in common, Dylan, 11, and Alma, 9 – who spoke out when questioned about the state of Sanz before the cameras of Europa Press. Perera claimed that the situation was not at all "alarming": "I think it's been a very sincere manifestation of someone who at one point feels sad, tired," Perera said. "It's happened to all of us, plus I think it's very brave and generous, and very helpful. It's going to help a lot of people," he added.

I don't want to suspend the tour because I think...

The singer resumed on April 14 in Bogotá (Colombia) the tour of presentation of Sanz live, and sang in other Latin American cities such as Lima (Peru), Guayaquil (Ecuador), Santiago de Chile (Chile) or Buenos Aires (Argentina), between the months of April and May, with great success of public in all venues and with several days of concerts in some of the destinations. The tour will continue in Spain from June 3, when it will start in Pamplona and offer concerts in cities throughout the country. In September he will return to the Americas and sing in Miami, New York or Los Angeles.
Last March Sanz released the song Correcaminos with Danny Ocean, produced by Alizzz, as part of an EP in which there are also the songs Cuando and Volé, in which he engages in a dialogue with the child who ceased to be: "They call it work, but ours is pure pleasure. Among the musical fetish misdeeds of my life, this one with Danny will be among my favorites. An artist with all possible letters and exclamation points. A song adventure in recognition of the roadrunner that we both carry inside and that has brought us here, "he confessed after the release of the song.
