20 Sep Luísa Sobral releases new album in October
Luísa Sobral, one of the most important singer-songwriters of her generation, returns with ‘DanSando’, her sixth studio album, to be released 11 years after her debut with ‘The Cherry on My Cake’.
The new work, which will be released in October, was produced by Brazilian multi-instrumentalist and Latin Grammy winner Tó Brandileone and was recorded between Lisbon (Portugal) and São Paulo (Brazil) before the summer. In its eleven songs, Luísa explores a more pop aesthetic than in her previous works, with songs written and sung in Portuguese that look into everyday life with sweetness and enthusiasm. At the beginning of the month, ‘Gosto de Ti’ will be the first single to be revealed.
Passionate about songwriting, Luísa Sobral has collaborated with renowned Portuguese artists such as Ana Moura, António Zambujo, Sara Correia, Mayra Andrade, Salvador Sobral, among many others. This passion led her to create the podcast ‘O Avesso da Canção’, in which she interviews big names in Portuguese music about the art of songwriting.
It is also in tribute to her love for words organized in songs that Luísa now finally presents ‘DanSando’ and, with it, she plans to travel the world giving continuity to her vast international experience, that has already taken her to countries as distinct as Spain, France, Turkey, Israel, Australia, Germany, Switzerland, Luxembourg, USA, Morocco, South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Japan, Brazil, and Uruguay.
Touring for the new album is set to start in November, with shows in Germany (Speicher, Bad Homburg, 25 Nov) and Luxembourg (Trifolion, 26 Nov). Many more dates will be announced soon.
“This is an album I’ve wanted to make for a long time: happier and sunnier, an ode to life and the good things that have happened to me”
