Roberto Alagna offers the album of a “re-birth”. It is born from his happiness to become a father for the second time and from the deepest feelings that his little Malèna’s coming into the world revived in him. The album is the fruit of what she inspired to him: a strong desire to give as one gives life, to pass on and share.
With his pure, natural, sunny voice, the most famous French tenor gives us an album that he considers both his most ‘intimate and personal’ and ‘as universal as can be’. Shaped with raw, visceral, sincere emotions, these songs resonate deep down in each of us and are immediately understood. By all.
The album aims to be ‘innovative and authentic, vibrant and colourful, almost like a film’. Malèna features seven original creations composed and written in Sicilian, Neapolitan or Italian by his brothers, Frederico and David Alagna, blend with a rich, eclectic selection of ten other Neapolitan songs. Great classics carefully selected and reinterpreted, down to the smallest detail.
Malèna is also an atmosphere, a particular melodic vein, an invitation to travel to volcanic lands and beyond. Between harshness and gentleness, joy and melancholy, fire and blood… Get carried away by its breath of life!
