ALEJANDRO FERNANDEZ’S “CONFIDENCIAS” FEATURES A COLLECTION OF CLASSIC LATIN MUSIC STANDARDS AND A SPECIAL VERSION OF JIMMY COX’S “NOBODY KNOWS YOU WHEN YOU’RE DOWN AND OUT” FEAT. ROD STEWART PLUS DUETS WITH CHRISTINA AGUILERA & VICENTE FERNANDEZ
Latin Grammy winner and multi-platinum selling artist Alejandro Fernandez will release his new album CONFIDENCIAS on August 27th, on Universal Music Latino. Recorded in Los Angeles last summer, the album will be available in two formats, standard and deluxe, with 11 tracks and 15 tracks plus a DVD, respectively. Featuring duets with Christina Aguilera, Vicente Fernandez and Rod Stewart, “Confidencias” was produced by the late legendary producer Phil Ramone. CONFIDENCIAS is currently available for pre-order on iTunes.
The album gathers some of the most relevant classic tunes from Latin America and Spain with new arrangements by Ramone, powerfully performed by Fernandez. The first single and video from the album, “Hoy Tengo Ganas de Ti,” features Christina Aguilera and is the theme song to Univision’s new prime time soap, La Tempestad. The video has been a huge success, racking up more than 3M views the weekend of its release and the single has gone #1 in 17 countries.
Alejandro brings two worlds together on “Nobody Knows You When You’re Down and Out” on which he sings in Spanish, while Rod Stewart sings in English. For the first time in more than 20 years, Alejandro went into the studio to record with his father, Vicente Fernandez. Their version of “Me olvidé de vivir” is an emotional standout on the album.
When Fernandez and Ramone recorded CONFIDENCIAS, it was Ramone’s idea to assemble a big band to get “the swing”, and to have Alejandro record live with the orchestra, which is unusual for the talented singer.
“Phil asked me to come in to the studio, from the beginning, to meet the musicians and watch them record,” says Fernandez. “He was very talented, sensible, perfectionist… a true genius. It was an honor to have worked with such an endearing person.”
During the recording, Ramone said “These songs are some of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard, and he is one of the great artists of all time. We really enjoy each other’s company and the musicians love him, it was quite an adventure.”
