Rome, January 28 - The latest album from Italy's
Andrea Bocelli, "Passion", is scheduled for release Tuesday,
featuring duets with such pop stars as Jennifer Lopez and
Canadian Nelly Furtado.
The album boasts 18 tracks, including an unusual virtual
duet with late French chanteuse Edith Piaf.
Bocelli and friends sing in at least five different
languages on the album - Italian, English, French, Spanish, and
Portuguese - as well as the Neapolitan dialect.
Bocelli joins once more with producer David Foster in
creating an album that makes the singer reminiscent of his early
days as a performer.
The Tuscan tenor said that he aims to "set hearts aflutter
again with this album of romantic classics inspired by my early
days, singing requests in bars".
Music critics say the track with Piaf could be the
highlight of the album, as Bocelli sings with the Little
Sparrow, who died in 1963, in her signature La Vie en Rose.
Bocelli is an iconic figure in music with a myriad of
breathtaking career achievements to his name.
The Italian tenor is the most successful classical solo
artist ever and one of the best-selling artists in music history
with more than 80 million albums sold worldwide.
He is also credited with enabling the core classical
repertoire to cross over and find a home atop the international
pop charts, creating a new genre of music along the way.
He has performed for four US presidents, two popes, and the
British royal family, as well as at ceremonies for the Olympic
Games and the World Cup.
Bocelli has been praised by such luminaries as the late
super-tenor Luciano Pavarotti, fellow member of the Three Tenors
Jose Carreras, Zubin Mehta, Lorin Maazel, Renee Fleming and
Celine Dion - as well as his own first teacher and guide, Franco
Corelli.
