Just eight months ago, the album While Nobody Watch, Mecna’s latest studio production, was released. Which made its debut in second position in the Fimi / GfK ranking, enjoying great success with audiences and critics. A work that has further defined the constantly evolving artistic direction of one of the most important exponents of the national rap scene, highlighting his ability to range and open up to new genres, sounds and collaborations while always remaining consistent with his path, made up of texts and bars through which Mecna reveals its inner worlds, with lightness, irony, awareness.
The repack artwork was created by Richard Wilson, former curator of the cover of Whilst Nobody Watch, whose giant picture occupied an entire wall along via Festa del Perdono for a month, in front of the Università degli Studi di Milano Statale. British street artist active since 2010, Richard Wilson in recent years has made himself known to the world public for the portraits and figurative works scattered on the walls of the main cities of the world, which have led him to collaborate with personalities of the caliber of Will Smith and Stevie Wonder .
In addition to the already published Soli and Mille Cose, the repack will contain other 6 songs that summarize the attitude and themes of the fourteen tracks of While Nobody Looks: more sentimental songs alternate with more markedly rap tracks, more danceable pieces with intimate lyrics, in a balance that manages to hold together opposing attitudes and moods. An ever wider breath underlined also by the new unexpected collaborations that are added to those already present on the disc.
After featuring with Gue Pequeno, Ernia, Izi, Frah Quintale and Madame Mecna summon five new artists to complete the picture: Francesca Michielin, CoCo, Jlord, Ghemon and Ginevra, collaborations that show particular attention to the new promises of the national scene as already happened in his previous records. To the productions, in addition to long-time collaborators Lvnar, Seife and Alessandro Cianci, the contribution of Night Skinny in For You, Zef in Soli and Geeno in Voodoo, The instrumentals range from House and uptempo atmospheres to darker sounds, with a strong appeal to the universe of black music.
