Marking Julio Iglesias’ First New Spanish Language Recordings in Twelve Years,
The Highly-Anticipated Collection Honoring Mexico’s Greatest Songwriters Will Have A Full Album Release On September 25, 2015
It’s been 12 years since the iconic Julio Iglesias recorded an album in Spanish, his native language. This Friday, July 10, Sony Music releases “Fallaste Corazón” (You Failed, Dear), the first single from his forthcoming album MÉXICO. Having recorded his first tribute album to Mexico in 1976, the best-selling Latin music artist in history now once again pays homage to a country whose support was instrumental in his rise to fame.
Julio Iglesias first performed in Mexico during the early 1970s and quickly won over the world’s largest Spanish-speaking country. Julio likewise fell in love with the nation and has continually remained well-versed in Mexican culture, history, music and customs.
While putting the finishing touches on MÉXICO, he noted that “Mexico is a country that I love dearly. The Mexican people have given me many indelible moments in my life. I know this country as if it was my homeland, and I always carry it in my soul.”
The full album, MEXICO, is scheduled for release on September 25, 2015. In this album, Julio Iglesias renews his ties to Mexico with material from its Golden Age songbook, performed with his inimitable passion. An homage to Mexico’s greatest songwriters, the album will include twelve songs with distinctive Mexican flavor, Julio’s timeless interpretations and a 21st century sound.
“Mexican music is universal, and its composers are legendary,” Julio Iglesias observes. The album will feature a moving dedication to these songwriters, written by the artist himself.
“This record is dedicated to the outstanding composers who, generation after generation, filled our lives with love, nostalgia, memories and moments. After all these years, they remain alive in our souls. With all my respect and profound admiration.” – Julio Iglesias.
With this album, Julio Iglesias’ discography surpasses 80 albums since 1968, a sterling body of work. A total of 47 years of hits and record-setting accomplishments – with over 300 million records sold – solidifying Julio as the best-selling Latino artist in history, and one of the Top-10 best-selling music artists of all-time.
MEXICO is a return to fundamentals for an artist who has sung in over 12 languages and won a multitude of accolades around the world. Now, Julio Iglesias ends his long absence from recording, by again embracing his beloved Mexico and its classic songwriters.
