They have different styles of music and completely different singing voices, but Andrea Bocelli and Ed Sheeran have proved the perfect team as they performed an amazing duet for Andrea’s new album Si.
Andrea, 60, sent fans wild as he shared the audio for new single ‘Amo soltanto te’ (I only love you) — a song Ed wrote — on his official YouTube channel. Both Andrea and Ed sing Italian throughout the heartfelt ballad that celebrates a couple’s love.
It marks the second time the two have worked together. Ed previously recruited Andrea to sing on ‘Perfect Symphony’, a re-worked version of Ed’s hit song ‘Perfect’ that reached No.1 in the UK. Earlier this year, Andrea even joined Ed onstage during his Wembley tour shows to sing a live duet with the English pop star.
The video of their latest collaboration was flooded with adoring comments from fans, with one writing: “Beautiful beyond words. Ed and Andrea, thank you for this beautiful beyond words song! I love it so much.”
Another fan commented: “Knew this would be amazing, but you both still blew me away. Incredible.”
And a third wrote: “I am freaking out with this collaboration. It’s just beautiful. My ears are blessed.”
Just weeks ago, Andrea debuted a stunning duet with his son Matteo as the pair teamed up for a new track ‘Fall On Me’, showing the world their close bond in a sweet black and white video also shared on the singer’s YouTube channel.
In the video, the legendary singer takes to the piano to accompany Matteo as he opens the song. The second his son starts to sing, Andrea’s pride is evident as he breaks in to a huge smile and continues to play beside him. Taking over for the next verse, he then shows off his own stunning vocals before the pair come together in amazing harmonies later in the tune.
Matteo’s brother, Amos Bocelli, will also feature on their father’s new album. He plays piano on acoustic version of ‘Sono Qui’ (I am Here) and ‘Ali di Liberta’.
Andrea has released a number of albums throughout his career, including a Christmas collection and a record of famous songs from films and soundtracks, but this is his first record of original material in over a decade. The album also features duets with English singer Dua Lipa and American singer and long-time friend Josh Groban.
