A freshly released album, a series of international dates behind us and, finally, the opportunity to embrace the Tuscan public again. Mario Biondi will be in concert on Monday 16 May at the Verdi Theater in Florence, and with him he will bring "Romantic", the new album dedicated to love in all its forms, from the couple bond to the fraternal one, to the love for parents and sons.

Romanticism understood in its various forms is the common thread of the 12 tracks on CD and 15 tracks in digital and cassette and LP (available from 25 March) that make up this new project, specifically 6 unreleased and 9 reinterpretations chosen mainly from the international repertoire.
"Romantic" is strongly characterized by the production curated by Mario Biondi himself with Massimo Greco and David Florio: all the songs were recorded in an analog way, a choice that gives a very warm and authentic sound to the entire album that strongly recalls the sounds of the years '70. The tracks were recorded, as was the case at the time, with collective takes in which all the musicians played together in the same room, enhancing the magic of sharing and the interplay effect. This direction made the studio experience unique and was established right away to recreate the original atmospheres of the songs that have been reinterpreted.
Mario Biondi thus presents “Romantic” which also becomes his message of peace: “In some songs this disc reflects the sound and character of the 70s, the years in which music reminded us that war is only a source of pain. Each of us has a romantic streak and hopes that the problems will be solved with common sense, with love of neighbor, not with violence or hostility ".
As for the tracklist of the six unpublished four are in English: "Romantic Song", "If I love you", "Loneliness", "Prisoner", one in Italian "Until the last breath" written by the great author Maurizio Fabrizio , and one in Neapolitan "Ricuordate" with the participation of Lina Sastri, the only "guest" voice within the project.
Among the 9 reinterpretations "The Creator Has a Master Plan" (Leon Thomas and Pharoah Sanders), "Going Out of My Head" (Dionne Warwick's version of the song from Little Anthony & The Imperials made famous by Frank Sinatra), "What's Your Name "(Leon Ware)," What's Going On (Les McCan's version of the famous Marvin Gaye song), You'll Never Find Another Like Mine "(Lou Rawls)," Papa Loves Mambo "(Perry Como), "Would You Believe in Me" (Jon Lucien), "Take It As It Comes" (the English version of "Take it like this" by Lucio Battisti), and the song "Tu Malatia" in Sicilian language to which Mario is very attached because written by his father Stefano Biondi.
Also available is “Romantic - All Around Selection”, a mini EP containing 3 tracks from the Romantic album in the Dolby Atmos version, parallel to the disc dedicated to audiophiles for a superior sound experience. These are the three tracks that will be available in spatial audio: “The Creator Has a Master Plan”, “Until the Last Breath” and “What's Going On”.
