The new song of the italian singer and songwriter Marco Rò “Laura” is finally available on all digital platforms. It was written the night before the wedding with the journalist and presenter of Rainews 24 Laura Tangherlini. The single, performed in Roman dialect, showcases the new EP entitled “3” (Romabbella Records), recorded at the Abbey Road Institute of London – exactly at number 3 of Abbey Road – in the historic Studios, where Beatles and Pink Floyd have recorded their masterpieces.
The song is a hymn for a future full of hope and love, two pillars on which marriage and life in general are founded. The principal message of the song is the rebirth of a civil society, which must learn from its mistakes and its own frailties in order to overcome the current difficult situation together. The English pianist Jack Lewin and the Dutch guitarist Gabriëlle Stok were working together with Marco on the recording of the song.
“I promise you only a piece of the heart / what can’t fall, what can’t die / what climbs over the mountains / what makes you laugh, what makes you cry”
Marco Rò: “I wrote the song the night before I got married, it was a surprise for everyone. My wife burst into tears with emotion when in the middle of the ceremony I took up the guitar and started to sing. Then, as a big Beatles fan, I couldn’t describe my joy, when I realized that I would have entered in n. 3 of Abbey Road for recording my album. Going through those corridors, the meeting with the guys of the Abbey Road Institute, I felt like a happy child inside the playground of his dreams. Laura was there with me, she filmed everything, photographing my smiles.”
The videoclip “Laura” was filmed by Laura Tangherlini, the wife of the singer, and edited by Federico Longo. It’s possible to call it “an album of memories” realized across the backstage images taken during the recording of the acoustic EP “3” at the Studios of the Abbey Road Institute in London.
“3” is a reflection on life and future, the result of an artistic meeting with young musicians from the most famous Academy of Studies in London. In this new EP consisting of 4 tracks with 1 bonus track, the deliberately essential sound of the “Italian style” song crosses with some “angular” aspects of relationships and the serious social theme of gender violence. In this project Marco Rò (voice, harmonica and travel guitar) collaborate with the english pianist Jack Lewin and the Dutch guitarist Gabriëlle Stok. “3” is produced by Stefano Bacchiocchi (Romabbella Records) and Blue Art, recorded by Antimo Esposito (Abbey Road Institute), pre-production by Matteo Schiaroli (Mussels Record), mix by Fabrizio Palma and mastering by Max Rosati.
