Ludovico Einaudi today released 12 Songs From Home, a special 12-track digital collection recorded on his iPhone at home during the peak of Italy’s lockdown. 12 Songs From Home features some of the best-known works from his career and artwork drawn by the composer. The release follows several live streams that were watched by thousands of people at a time on his Instagram page. Watch Ludovico Einaudi’s new video for ‘Nuvole Bianche’.
Ludovico Einaudi explained, “I recorded 12 Songs From Home between March and April 2020 during the peak of Italy’s lockdown. In March I started to play live concerts regularly on social media. Switching on my phone to connect for 30-40 minutes with the world has been a beautiful and intimate alternative to the spring tour that I regrettably had to postpone. This new release is the memory of those home live concerts, my memory of this time, the memory of a strange and new atmosphere that we won’t forget.”
Inspired by the huge response to his self-broadcasts Einaudi recorded this special set on his iPhone. 12 Songs From Home features some of the best-known works from Ludovico Einaudi’s career including 2004’s ‘Nuvole Bianche’, ‘Ascent’ from his mammoth Seven Days Walking project last year, and ‘Elegy For The Arctic’ released in 2018 to highlight Greenpeace’s climate change campaign.
