Italian singing sensations Il Volo will release new album ‘Il Volo Sings Morricone’ on 5th November 2021 on Sony Music.
The trio – Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto and Gianluca Inoble – will pay tribute to the late and legendary composer Ennio Morricone, with the endorsement of his family.
‘Il Volo Sings Morricone’ consists of 14 tracks recalling the Maestro’s legendary melodies, including the first single to be lifted from the album – ‘The Ecstasy of Gold’ from the movie ‘The Good, the Bad and the Ugly’ – out on October 22nd 2021.
