ABOUT THE RELEASE
9 is the new album by Carlo Barbagallo, to be released on May 5, 2017 by Stereodischi, Noja Recordings and Wild Love Records.
9 comes from Barbagallo’s writing, arranging, and production efforts in the intervals between touring, working on various projects and as a producer for the past three years.
The Sicilian artist was joined by twenty musicians spread across the globe from Siracusa to Torino and from Paris to Montreal.
These travel companions helped make a musical work without genre boundaries, from soul to electroacoustic improvisation, from funk to southern rock.
Says Barbagallo, “The meaning of the title 9 could be considered as a measure of time passing, but you could find many other meanings and associations: its shape is like a « strange loop », not a loop like a 0, not as unlimited as ∞, yet presents an escape and therefore does not remain within its cycle.” Indeed, these unified songs create a loose concept album, chronicling what Barbagallo calls a a “sick relationship” in all its crises, reflections, and resolutions.
