(OCTOBER 22 – Toronto, ON) Today, IL VOLO debuts their new track, “The Ecstasy of Gold” (from the feature film The Good, the Bad and the Ugly), off their forthcoming album, IL VOLO SINGS MORRICONE (Sony Music). The iconic song is accompanied by new lyrics written specifically for the trio by Ennio Morricone’s son, Andrea – listen here. Set for worldwide release on November 5 and available now for preorder, IL VOLO’s highly anticipated new album, IL VOLO SINGS MORRICONE, is an earnest dedication to the beloved Maestro endorsed by the legend’s family.
On IL VOLO SINGS MORRICONE, Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto, and Gianluca Ginoble take listeners on an exciting journey through the art and music of one of the greatest composers of the 20th century. Comprised of 14 songs that recall the Maestro’s legendary melodies from “The Ecstasy of Gold” (from The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly) to “Your Love” (from Once Upon a Time in the West), both of which are available now for streaming and purchase. Another highlight is “I colori dell’amore” (“The Colors of Love”), an unreleased track composed by Andrea Morricone for the trio, which was unexpectedly performed live for the first time at The Arena di Verona on June 5, 2021. Rounding out the album is “E più ti penso” (“The More I Think of You”), a medley of Ennio Morricone’s scores from the films Once Upon a Time in America and Malèna, a nod to the trio’s live performance of the song with the Maestro at Piazza del Popolo in Rome in 2011.
IL VOLO SINGS MORRICONE also features three artist collaborations: violinist David Garrett on “La Califfa” (“The Lady Caliph”), HAUSER from 2CELLOS on “Se” (“If”) and trumpet player Chris Botti on “Come Sail Away.”
The album was recorded in Rome, with Maestro Marcello Rota conducting the historic Roma Sinfonietta Orchestra, which – since its establishment in 1994 – worked extensively with Maestro Ennio Morricone, performing under his musical direction at some of the world’s most prestigious concert halls.
IL VOLO SINGS MORRICONE is a special record combining the unforgettable melodies by the celebrated conductor, musician, composer, and author of some of the greatest film soundtracks in the history of Italian and international cinema with the trio’s unique voices.
