At the end of last year, Andrea Bocelli released his beautiful new album Believe, which feature the iconic You’ll Never Walk Alone as the first track. The showtune from 1945 musical Carousel was made famous by Gerry and The Pacemakers’ 1963 version, which went on to become Liverpool FC’s club anthem. Now Bocelli has released a stunning new music video with him singing the much-loved song, which fans can view below.
The music video arrives today alongside a deluxe version of Bocelli’s Believe album, which hit No 3 in the UK Official Albums Chart in December.
The latest version of the record includes five new acoustic arrangements of some of the tracks.
These include You’ll Never Walk Alone, Hallelujah, Pianissimo, Amazing Grace and I Believe.
Meanwhile, this Easter marks a year from the Italian tenor’s record-breaking Music For Hope live stream performance.
During the first lockdown, Bocelli gave a free live-streamed concert on Easter Sunday.
The unforgettable performance took place from an empty Duomo di Milano (Milan’s cathedral).
Inside the historic Christian building, he sang Panis Angelicus, Ave Maria, Sancta Maria and Domine Deus, accompanied by cathedral organist Emanuele Vianelli.
After which, he stepped outside onto the 14th-century cathedral’s steps, where he concluded with a rendition of Amazing Grace.
Bocelli told us: “Music is an expression of the sacred, a readily available bridge across which faith can be revealed to us beyond the veil of our noisy, everyday lives.”
The 62-year-old said that while the Duomo di Milano was empty, the loneliness was a sort of mirage.”
He said: “There were really millions of us there, interconnected through music, and I gave my voice to both their prayer and my own.
“Our Christian Easter, with its message of love and redemption, seemed to me like the perfect time to take a moment to stop and reflect upon things, as well as offering a moment of hope.”
Bocelli had been invited by the City of Milan and the cathedral to give “an uplifting message of love, healing and hope through music.”
He also said of his latest album Believe: “This is an album I hold very dear to my heart; the fruit of a long internal journey even more so than an external, artistic one.
“It’s a project with a purpose to put into words the musical dimension of spirituality by offering music that – at least for our intentions – can bring peace and harmony to those who listen to it.”
Andrea Bocelli’s Believe (Deluxe Edition) is available digitally now.
