The music video signed by Giacomo Triglia, one of the most popular Calabrian directors on the Italian music scene, produced by Capitol / Universal uses the production of Borotalco TV and was created between Scilla and Gerace. In the music video, Lorenzo hosts an exceptional international artist: Shantel, a German producer, singer and disc jockey, famous for his work with his Gypsy orchestra and for remixes of Balkan and electronic music, with which he repeatedly conquered the top of the European world Musical lists. Alla salute, now available in digital stores (, is one of the highlights of Lorenzo’s latest production and is part of the flow of music that is slowly, chapter by chapter, composing the Sun Disc in full and physical format next fall. “Sun Disc” is an unidentified flying object, a stream, a philosophy, but above all a free river of fragments written by Lorenzo two and a half years after La Nuova Era. After the first new songs, including “La primavera” and “I love you baby”, which were at the top of the most listened to on the radio, “Alla salute” is a new song, another piece of constant movement that Jovanotti composes for month after month, week after week, no pattern, no fixed schedule: the flow continues to flow.

“Alla salute” was born during a pandemic out of a strong desire to look to the future and prepare the party in time when we need this crazy and timeless song. – said Lorenzo – The collaboration of Shantel (producer DJ-musician from Eastern Europe specializing in this “Balkan rhythm” that only works when original) gives absolute authenticity to the atmosphere that this piece wants to evoke. It is a toast, a wild and alcoholic dance, a necessary and pagan outlet. The sound is Mediterranean from the eastern shore, recorded between Athens, Cortona, Dusserdolf and Istanbul with an ensemble of excellent musicians steeped in the traditions of European diasporas. This track is a train, it’s a party on a train that is headed for better times, but does not forget where it started from and what stations it passes through. “The story told by the video and the release date are still top secret, but you can bet Jovanotti will add a new important piece with this movie to his superb collection of his best music videos.
