“Segnali dismo” is available in stores and digitally, the third album by lyricist, composer and songwriter Saverio Grandi, author of some of the most important songs on the Italian recording scene with over 20 million copies sold.
The new single is not about love but about love
Furthermore, the new single taken from the album, “Love Believes Love Can”, written by Pacifico and composed by Saverio Grandi, is in radio rotation. A song that doesn’t talk about love, but talks about love. A feeling seen as something that man has always had inside, as a form of spirituality that accompanies him in life in all circles and in which he can believe especially in the toughest and most difficult moments.
Nine openly autobiographical songs that deal with themes dear to the artist
“Smoke Signals” (PMS Studio) is an openly autobiographical album which, through nine songs, narrates personal life moments and choices. A path, in some respects also generational, which reflects on the changes and frenzy of the daily routine, focusing on the themes dearest to the artist, such as freedom, love, responsibilities, the decisions that change our lives.
A disc with no frills or commercial concerns
In this regard, Saverio declared: «I chose this title because we are living in an era where communication is fast, often shouted, and as such it must necessarily be understandable by everyone. Instead, I wanted to write and sing songs that told personal, intimate and generational stories through a language that didn’t have to be screamed and assimilated upon first listen. Hence the “smoke signals”, a coded language carefully prepared by Native Americans and sent to be understood only by those they wished. “Smoke Signals” is a real record, without too many frills and commercial concerns, where I wrote just for myself, without thinking, as often happens in the author’s profession, what could work and what not. It’s definitely my most mature and complete record, there’s so much of me and my life in it that I venture the definition of honesty. I hope that many will find themselves making this journey with me crossing the Monument Valley which is portrayed on the cover up to the Po Valley where I live today».
This is the tracklist of the album: “Love believes love can”, “Weightless”, “I like it”, “As it is right that
sia”, “Silent heroes”, “Wake me up when it’s over”, “Siamo noi” feat. Gianni Novi, “To my father”, “Smoke signals”
