Today, Capitol Records released acclaimed singer/songwriter Matteo Bocelli’s debut solo single, aptly entitled “Solo.” Over lush orchestral arrangements, delicate piano played by Matteo himself, and the vivid neons of modern pop production from GRAMMY® winner Jesse Shaktin, he sings passionately and clearly about lost romance, forging a new path and the void felt when a loved one is just out of reach. “Missing you with every breath I take,” he sings. “Wishing you were with me when I wake.” Matteo wrote the song with Fiona Bevan and Marco Guazzone.

The accompanying video, which was also released today, is rich with symbolism and the natural beauty of the majestic Dolomites mountains, located in northeast Italy. It was directed by Gaetano Morbioli, who also helmed the official video for “Fall On Me,” a duet that paired Matteo with his father, opera legend Andrea Bocelli.

Matteo Bocelli, who is graduating at the Conservatory of Lucca in Tuscany, says, “Over the past three years, Capitol Records has given me a rare opportunity – to have time, to study, to write new music, to rehearse – and I’m really proud to be able to release this first song.”
