and 30 years of ‘Terra Promessa’ with
The new Greatest Hits set for release
friday october 31st
Sony Music Entertainment Australia is proud to announce EROS 30, set for release Friday October 31st 2014. EROS 30 is a brand new Eros Ramazzotti greatest hits album, celebrating the thirtieth anniversary of ‘Terra Promessa’, the song that launched his career and Eros’ subsequent worldwide career success.
In 1984, the Festival di Sanremo in Italy turned the spotlight on young performers for the first time. Eros was a 21-year-old Roman singer-songwriter and the artist the public had unknowingly been looking for and, expecting for a while. He had an angelic face but was gutsy, spiky and talented. ‘Terra Promessa’, with lyrics and music co-written by Eros, spoke to young people and was tuned into the exact wavelength of the social issues of the time. And with its modern dance beat it was one step ahead of the so-called British Invasion.
“We’re the young of today, souls in the city, in empty cinemas, sitting in bars and walking alone on the darkest night, even if we’re a bit scared of tomorrow”, lyrics takenfrom ‘Terra Promessa’
With ‘Terra Promessa’ a dream began to come true for this kid who was born on the edge of the sticks and it was the start of the hard work that quickly had him partnering with top musicians and performers on the international scene, until he himself became one of the greatest stars on the world music horizon, selling over 50,000,000 records.
The tracks on EROS 30 are broadly in chronological order, starting with ‘Terra Promessa’ and continuing with the two big hits ‘Una Storia Importante’ and ‘Adesso Tu’ that brought Eros international success.
EROS 30 is a collection of thirty tracks, all co-authored (music and lyrics) by Eros himself, an artist who has always been attentive to seeking out lyrics, music and musicians to take into the recording studio or on tour with him. He wants to be sure he offers his fans the best of himself!
EROS 30 tells the story of Eros the artist, adding more space for his biggest hits (they would not all have fitted onto two CDs), including versions of ultra-famous tracks in other languages. There are lyrics in Portuguese for ‘Cose della Vita’and ‘Quanto Amore Sei’, and in Spanish for ‘Terra Promessa’, plus ‘Linda e il mare’ which has only been available digitally to date.
On the third disc of the Deluxe Edition, we can enjoy pre-success tracks like the stunning ‘Ad un Amico’ (Eros’s debut single, released in 1982) and its B side, the nostalgic ‘Sole Che Viene’. The bonus disc continues with a playlist of other rare tracks.
