Jovanotti. New York For Life

I A (June 25, 2012)
A new CD, new concert dates and other surprises for Jovanotti fans.

In the upcoming months there are quite a few surprises in store for fans of Jovanotti (AKA Lorenzo Cherubini), a gigantic star of the Italian music scene for the past quarter of a century. Jovanotti is no longer loved exclusively by his Italian fans, over the course of the past few years Jova has conquered the hearts of the American audience, popping up in intimate, small venues such as New York’s The Poisson Rouge or famous music festivals such as San Francisco’s Stern Grove. 

First and foremost on August 7th, ATO Records will release Jovanotti’s new album titled "ITALIA 1988-2012.” The album is a career retrospective but it includes four new tracks and is also the artist's first physical album of studio recordings to be released in the U.S., and the first time much of the material has been released here in any format.

The album producer Ian Brennan compiled and remixed what he considers Jovanotti's most compelling material—the songs that exemplify the latter's reputation as a Springsteen-style rock poet and a distinctive singer. Jovanotti laughingly reacted to some of Brennan's choices with, "Are you sure I recorded that song?" The new songs on the CD are: "New York for Life" and "Con La Luce Negli Occhi," and radical re-workings of Jovanotti's songs "La Porta É Aperta" (from the Ora album) and"Mezzogiorno" (from the Safari album).

Jovanotti is also within North American reach this summer as concerts were announced in Canada, California, Oregon, Washington and Texas (in the Fall). Find a list below with direct links to purchase your tickets.

New Yorkers get ready for a special addition to the local music scene. Sources tell us that Jovanotti is moving (at least for a bit) to the Big Apple this fall, and that can only mean that his creative soul will seek places to let loose… Expect concert dates and random happenings around the tri-state area.
