Andrea Bocelli is renowned worldwide for his incredible singing talent and his gift has clearly been passed onto his son Matteo Bocelli. Just three years ago the now 25-year-old released a duet single with his father called Fall On Me. The track even featured in the Disney movie The Nutcracker and the Four Realms.
Matteo followed this up by covering Sir Elton John’s Can You Feel The Love Tonight from The Lion King.
The track featured on Disney Goes Classical, which saw the rising star accompanied by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
The 25-year-old has also performed live by himself, singing some iconic tracks his father has recorded, which include Elvis Presley’s Love Me Tender and Can’t Help Falling In Love.
But now as he gears up to release his debut album next year, Matteo has put out his single Solo, which now comes in an acoustic version.
Andrea added: “Going solo, away from those who raised you, the world you grew up in, and yet my greatest hope is that you will never feel lonely, because love is a constant presence; love stays by your side, even when you are far away.
“Solo, your first track, is out today. No title could be more fitting and more beautiful: now that you are a man, you have opened the door to life and the future with a sure hand; you have crossed that threshold alone.
“Now it’s my turn to sit in the front row and cheer for your journey, for your song, as you yourself have done for so many years, proud to applaud your father. You don’t know how eager I am to do it, the pride and affection I feel. I’ll have to resist the temptation to say to whoever I’m next to: ‘You know, that’s my son up there!’”
Matteo Bocelli’s Solo single is out now and his debut album releases in 2022.
