“If you don’t flap your wings hard, you return to the ground”

Coinciding with his 20 years of music David Bisbal faces an end to the year full of projects, like a new studio album which, as confirmed to Efe, will be released in 2022 and a great concert that will take place in his native country, Almeriawith all the enthusiasm and dedication of those who left their mark.

“Enrolling in a music program does not guarantee you a lifetime music career. As a coach in this type of contest, the first thing I say to participating artists is that it doesn’t matter if you win them, because what you must do is strive to win in life, because if you don’t flap your wings hard, you go back to the ground,” he said in an interview today in Madrid.

It was at the Teatro Real, a temple of classical music where he never dreamed of playing and which he has already visited six times as a protagonist, although his next big show on November 22 It will bring you much closer to where your musical aspirations began.

“20 years ago I left my land to fulfill a dream. The idea is to come back now to continue the dream and do it in a place that has always been in my heart, the Estadio de los Juegos del Mediterráneo, where my team, UD, plays Almería, and in front of my fans, family and friends, in front of all those who accompanied me“, Explain.

It’s early to announce the names, but it also confirms that there will be guests. “I would like to have those colleagues with whom I have collaborated for all these years”, warns Bisbal (Almería, 1979).

It will be at a concert which probably “it will exceed the usual time, because it will be the party” and because they will send all the songs that have been singles in these two decades of albums, from the recent ‘En tus planes’ (2020), which was the bestseller of that year in Spain by a national artist, to the first ‘Corazón Latino’ (2002), of which ‘Ave María’ was released as a first preview.

“It’s become a classic. I see very young people and even children singing it. It’s a song of weddings, parties and joys and having something of those characteristics that I really like”, proudly assures the owner in his repertoire of other songs that have combined Latin tunes with his Andalusian origin like “Bulería”, “Lloraré las penas” or “Oye el boom “.

Rosalia’s idol

Since his departure from the Academy for the historic first edition of “Operation Triumph” it happened that the student has become a reference for other young artists, although it removes the iron from the material.

“A veces la gente is heading to mí como maestro. No me gusta eso porque siempre hay algo que aprender. Me considero aún un aprendiz”, puntualiza el almeriense, que dice que uno de los mayores errors que cometió en un momento de su carrera he was “relax and trust that everything can be left in the hands of the team”. “No, you have to know everything,” he insists.

Among those who cited him as a teen idol are Rosaliewho during the opening of her current ‘Motomami World Tour’ precisely in Almería recalled that the first time she went to this city on vacation when she was a child, I could only think that I was walking the streets of David Bisbal.

“I was very happy that he remembered me. I know his family loves me very much and it makes me very happy that he represents us in other countries, because it shows that it’s a coconut and great music“, he underlines.

Although he regrets at another point in the interview that today “it seems like a luxury to record songs with instruments in the studio” and is a big advocate of the role of musicians due to his debut as a member of the Expressions Orchestra, he supports the author of ‘Saoko’ in the debate on whether a concert with almost all the music in conserve is a real concert.

“Each artist makes their music the way they want. They didn’t choose the musicians anyway, but they chose a show with I don’t know how many dancers, fantastic visuals… When I see it I fall on the ground, because I think she’s a fabulous artist“, insists.

He could arrive in Almería with a new album under his armthe eighth, which he confirms will see the light of day before the end of 2022 and whose advances have already been heard such as ‘You give me’ or ‘Come back, come back’, alongside Danna Paola.

And then, an even brighter 2023. “I hope it will be a very important year, because it will be the tour of this new album, in which I will play in Spain and in which I will return to Latin America”, he anticipates.
