Il Volo hit the UK!

Il Volo's debut album finally hits UK shelves at the end of this month, and they've been speaking to Classic FM's Lucy Coward all about it.

Il Volo

The fresh-faced Itlian trio made up of Piero (17), Ignaizo (16) and Gianluca (16) met in 2009, when the three appeared individually on Italy's equivalent of Britain's Got Talent.

Since then Il Volo have enjoyed phenomenal worldwide success with their own brand of operatic pop, including appearances on American Idol and top 10 hits in countries all over the world. Now UK audiences can finally find out what all the fuss is about when they unleash their debut album next week. The album features a collection of traditional Italian standards, old favourites and brand new songs.

Classic FM's Lucy Coward sat down with Il Volo to talk about their astonishing career so far, the new album and the advice given to them by older stars.

Watch our interview with Il Volo below.

Il Volo's self-titled debut album is released on 31 October.
