Andrea Bocelli returns with an album of classical-crossover tracks celebrating love, life and family. Sì is his first album of new material in 14 years – it features 16 new songs with guest appearances from Ed Sheeran, Dua Lipa, Josh Groban and Aida Garifullina. Ed Sheeran, who previously collaborated with Bocelli on their chart-topping song Perfect Symphony, has also written a track for the album, Amo Soltanto Te.
At the centre of the album is the single Fall On Me, sung by Andrea and his 20-year-old son Matteo Bocelli. The song will feature on the new Disney film The Nutcracker and The Four Realms, set for release on 2nd November.
The State Academic Symphony Orchestra of Russia performs Swan Lake under the baton of its artistic director, Vladimir Jurowski, in this new recording of an old classic. Swan Lake is revered as one of the greatest ballets ever written, and this recording highlights the extraordinary symphonic qualities of Tchaikovsky's musical masterpiece.
The album also comes with a do-it-yourself origami swan, because why not?
