Product Overview

Alejandro Sanz is currently in one of his most creative stages and has composed what are possibly the best songs of his career. This new album El Alma Al Aire includes ten new compositions and was recorded in Criteria Studios (The Hit Sound Factory of Florida) in Miami. This studio has housed such big names like the Eagles (Hotel California) and the Bee Gees (Saturday Night Fever). The studios have recently been remodeled and can now be considered one of the best recording studios in the world. It consists of six studios, of which Alejandro has recorded in five of them, with a specially-designed digital system. Alejandro Sanz has dedicated more than one year in the composition of these ten new songs that comprise his new album, El Alma Al Aire. He has dedicated 4 months in the pre-production and more than 5 months in the recording and mixing of this album.

While a quick glance might cast Alejandro Sanz as another Latin pop heartthrob in the mold of Enrique Iglesias, Ricky Martin, et al, he's much more than that. For one thing, EL ALMA AL AIRE, despite its success, isn't riding the gravy train that began with the aforementioned cover boys in the late 1990s; Sanz was making fine music way before all that pop furor took place. For another, the songs here never avail themselves of the sledgehammer hook/do-or-die production aesthetic behind the crossover appeal of those artists. In fact, Sanz's music bears only a nodding acquaintance with Anglo pop/rock.
Unlike so much "Latin pop," Latin musical elements predominate on EL ALMA, as the acoustic guitar and syncopated percussion that are central to so many of the arrangements here attest. Sanz is a pure romantic, and EL ALMA AL AIRE is full of soft, lush tunes that will tug at your heartstrings, whether you speak Spanish or not.
