Songs to say goodbye
This collection of songs is based on sketches that I have been gathering in the last two years in various circumstances: many I wrote during my travels in 2019, in rented rooms, hotels, in general places where I always had my luggage ready and, perhaps for that reason, the feeling of the impending goodbye permeates the songs frequently; Others appeared in 2020 during the long months of confinement in which I observed with disbelief that little seemed stable in life really was, and some more arrived in the last days, during the recording process.
Two songs, however, date back to 2018 and I frequently performed them live, Broken trust, broken promises and Without a trace. I never recorded them properly and they fit well with the spirit of the album, so I decided to include them in this suite.
All the songs are recorded between January 28 and February 6, 2021, with the exception of By chance, which I recorded in April 2019, and I always knew, in August 2020.
