Piero Pelù: a new album is coming

A few days ago he announced that he had overcome a series of problems that had kept him away from the musical scene for a long time. A few days later Piero Pelù announces his recording and live return.

The new album will be titled “Deserts” and will be available in all stores from next June 7th (Epic Records/Sony Music Italy). The album, which is already available for pre-order (https://epic.lnk.to/deserti), will be released in physical format in CD, transparent blue vinyl and 180 gr black vinyl. The autographed CD version and transparent LP version will also be available exclusively on Amazon. Furthermore, on the store of Piero's official website you can purchase the cassette in a limited and numbered version (www.pieropelu.net).

Deserts is the second chapter of Trilogy of Discomfortwork that began in 2020 with the publication of the album “Fragile boxers”.

In recent days Pelù had first reset his social profiles and then published a message for all his fans in which he spoke about his state of health (Read here).

A short countdown that led today to the publication of the first track of the album entitled “Novichok” a song that Pelù decided to share with his fans in a place that is very important to him, the cellar in via De' Bardi in Florence where i Litfiba they were born and took their first steps.

Last night, in fact, Pelù invited a select group of fans to the cellar to take part in the event Speakeasy from Piero, an evening conceived and desired by the Tuscan singer-songwriter to reconnect with his musical roots which are still very present in him and his music.

In via De' Bardi (where Piero had last sung at the end of 1988) Pelù closed a chapter (Litfiba said goodbye for the last time in December 2022 during the last date of the farewell tour) to start a new one : Deserts”.

I chose to announce the release of the new album by sharing with my fans “Novichok” because we live in times that are constantly poisoned by fake news and increasingly widespread hatred from the internet to our streets. “Novichok” is the poison subtly used by Putin to kill his opponents and metaphorically it is the poison that is served to us citizens every day through contaminated foods and increasingly invasive and false propaganda.

Musically”Novichok” is very linked to Piero's litfibian roots and for this reason the legendary cellar in via De' Bardi in Florence was the ideal place to present him to the very first funs (as Pelù likes to call his fans).

This restart is not only linked to the publication of new unreleased music but also to the return to the stage after the cancellation of last year's tour due to problems related to tinnitus.

The Deserts Tour by Piero Pelù (accompanied by a band with Giacomo Castellano “Castillo” on guitar, Luca Martelli “Mitraglia” on drums and Max Gelsi “Sigel” on bass) will, in fact, go on tour with this calendar
