Andrea Bocelli's New Album, SI, is Out Today

Global superstar tenor Andrea Bocelli releases his brand new album 'Sì' today - his first recording of all-new material in 14 years.

Bocelli's humble manner belies his international status as one of the world's biggest classical stars - he's sung for Popes, Presidents and Royalty, performed in many of the greatest concert halls and opera houses, and sold 80 million records. Yet his new album sees him return to his roots, with an intimate collection of songs that celebrate love, faith and family. It was recorded at his home in Italy and was produced by the legendary Bob Ezrin (Pink Floyd, Lou Reed).

"I wanted to go back to my memories of being a young man, playing at a piano bar. Obviously since then, I've produced lots of albums, sung lots of covers, performed many other things. But at a certain point I said to myself: 'Maybe the time has come to put my effort into finding new songs.' Like starting all over again, as it were, in my career."

A true international artist, Bocelli has joined forces with some of the world's biggest names to record a number of duets on this album, namely Ed Sheeran, Dua Lipa, Josh Groban and Aida Garifullina. Of special interest is the duet with his 20-year-old son Matteo in 'Fall On Me' which since release a month ago has been viewed almost 20 million times on YouTube.
