Preview by Jack Foley
JULIO Iglesias’s career is marked by songs and successes in every country and by worldwide top hits in many languages.
38 of these songs in English and Spanish appear in the double CD album Julio Iglesias 1, which will be released this August and in which the artist has re-recorded many of the hits that have turned him into one of the most emblematic celebrities of all time.
Commenting on the album, Iglesias said: “This album is mainly dedicated to all the anonymous people who have been following me for 44 years, with generosity and affection, and who have allowed me to keep singing up until today.They’ll always be the great driving force of my career.”
Julio has been working for three years on this album and the result has been worth it, because, far from having the differences in sound and production that normally affect compilations, the songs sound uniform and as if they were one, giving the album an appreciated mature unifying sound and interpretation. This is the new Julio Iglesias.
The album has already gone multi-Platinum in all the countries where it has been released: Spain, Brazil and the Spanish language countries.
