ROME – “In a few days ‘V’ will be for everyone, and I am struggling to let it go, because it has accompanied me and kept me company for the last two years, giving meaning and purpose to my days and nights, it was a great adventure, a musical and personal challenge that has totally absorbed me and now that this creature is about to come out I would like to hold it close to me and keep it hidden, to protect it. Inside here is my whole life, my fear and my strength, my abyss and my sky, my hope and the sound of my heart beating in the chest at the bottom of a cave while everything collapsed outside ” .
With these words, published on Facebook, Mannarino presents ‘V’, his new album. “I tried to play the starlight, and the great waves of the ocean, the sap flowing through the forest, and the human cry that says” I’m alive! ” – he adds – There can be no resistance without vitality, there is no vitality without beauty. That beauty I went to look for, more I could not have known nor could I do. This is all I can say, tell. A few more days, a few more hours… “.
