Il Divo Siempre Global November Release

November 10, 2006

Bringing opera permanently to the charts, the success of Il Divo finds no parallel. Shortly, the group's new album "Siempre" will be out.


RELEASE DATE NORTH AMERICA:
NOVEMBER 21


RELEASE DATE GLOBALLY:
NOVEMBER 27




Continuing the prosperous collaboration from the two previous albums "Il Divo" and "Ancora", the quartet again has turned to A Side Productions.


In 1976, John Miles released his debut album "Rebel", including the classic to be pop opus "Music". The song became a huge hit, in the UK peaking at #3. Now thirty years later, "Music" appears on Il Divo's upcoming "Siempre" album.


Prior to the recording of Il Divo's '06 version, together
A Side and John Miles, still with a brilliant voice, re-arranged the song, adapting it from symphonic rock into a more operatic kind of a style. Miles even wrote two new verses, and finally "Musica" was translated into Italian.


Songs on "Siempre" produced by A Side Productions:

La Vida Sin Amor*
Come Primavera*
Una Noche
Musica


* Also co-written by Magnusson/Kreuger
