IL VOLO SINGS MORRICONE is comprised of 14 songs that recall the Maestro's legendary melodies from "The Ecstasy of Gold" (from The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly), featuring new lyrics written specifically for the trio by Ennio Morricone's son, Andrea Morricone to "Your Love" (from Once Upon a Time in the West). Another highlight is "I colori dell'amore" ("The Colors of Love"), an unreleased track composed by Andrea for the trio, which was unexpectedly performed live for the first time at The Arena di Verona on June 5, 2021. Rounding out the album is "E più ti penso" ("The More I Think of You"), a medley of Ennio Morricone's scores from the films Once Upon a Time in America and Malèna, a nod to the trio's live performance of the song with the Maestro at Piazza del Popolo in Rome in 2011. It also features three artist collaborations: violinist David Garrett on "La Califfa" ("The Lady Caliph"), HAUSER from 2CELLOS on "Se" ("If") and trumpet player Chris Botti on "Come Sail Away."

In celebration of their new album, Il Volo will also embark on a world tour, which kicks off in North America on March 4, 2022 in Canada and continues to the United States beginning March 11.  The 25-date North American tour will include stops at iconic venues like Radio City Music Hall in New York, Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, and the Orpheum Theatre in San Francisco. Tickets for the tour will be available everywhere Friday, November 12. Il Volo will be offering a range of VIP packages including exclusive merchandise, a pre-show soiree, and meet and greet and photo with the trio.
