After “Milan I lost myself”, “Chlorine” and “Spritz Campari”, here is “Milano Bergamo” the new song by Mietta (Dafra Music, Artist First distribution), now available digitally (listen on Spotify).
Mietta tells the song, written by Karin Amadori, Valerio Carboni and Vincenza Casati and artistically produced and arranged by Valerio Carboni: “I have always ranged between the most diverse genres, feeling reproached that I did not have my own identity. Now, paradoxically, after so many years of career I have won: I have a figure of mine that identifies me and also very precise: that of not being tied to a genre! For this reason, with happiness, in recent months I have recorded “contemporary” songs, such as the latest singles released, which represent a further new style to deal with. Songs that are very difficult to write because unlike other pieces from other historical periods, these are not intended for social commitment or to move, but intended for lightness, which still has value “.
“‘Milan Bergamo’ it is a piece conceived to give space to the lightness that always has its value – Mietta continues -. The radios dictate and change the musical tastes of the general public, not out of a kind of whim or exercise of power but because they often manage to perceive the need of a population even before artists. My job (because it’s a job!) Consists in finding continuous balances between serving the public and doing what I like. In this historical period the most loved and transmitted songs are neither those about the social, nor those aimed at moving (and there will also be a reason that is not up to me to explain) but those to distract oneself. Even explaining ‘Milano Bergamo’ would not be correct as I have never loved to “explain” a song. It has an overwhelming rhythm and a text that speaks of a long-distance relationship, of commuting. The authors were fantastic managing to make the text not too explicit nor didactic so that everyone can find the emotions and the epilogue they prefer ”.
