Cristina Donà Want new album

This recording project sees light after a successful crowdfunding campaign and gravitates around the theme of “desire”, which sews the songs with a subtle red thread.

Desire as an indispensable engine of our lives, but also the source of an unbridgeable void, of a perennial dissatisfaction that brings with it its consequences. The title itself freely indicates the etymology of the word desire, literally “lack of stars”.

Through the press release want it is presented as a harsh and multiform album, with marked features, strong brushstrokes, layered and certainly identifying, the result of a thoughtful and shrewd work.

The musical parts are written, once again, in four hands with the musician and producer Saverio Lanza, who also took care of the arrangements of the disc. The result is an atypical production and, for the first time in the works of Cristina, echoes of “prehistoric electronics” appear, so definable for their primitive, sparse and minimal nature.

In the tracklist ten songs that arise from a self-analysis through which we try to investigate, in the light of desire, the current human condition as a reflection of a sum of individual choices and behaviors.

A point of view that discovers truths with hard and crude features, digs deep and shakes, but also tries to imagine possible horizons. Fragility and weaknesses of our humanity are discovered in the face of what we are today and the planet that hosts us. And it is precisely in the face of an apparently incontrovertible reality that the need arises for a first of all personal awareness, which then hopes for a collective one.

This is the tracklist of the album:

  1. Distracted
  2. Guilt
  3. Countdown
  4. Wish
  5. Like when trees talk to each other
  6. Come back
  7. Without gun or sword
  8. Beyond
  9. The autumn
  10. Credits
