Speaking with Express.co.uk a few weeks ago, Bocelli said: “Regarding the duets, it was a great joy to intertwine my voice with that of the great Cecilia Bartoli, the most important mezzo-soprano of our time with her own thriving career.
“It was a great joy to have the opportunity to duet with Alison Krauss, a multi-talented, exuberant artist, one of the true icons of American music.”
The tenor recorded with them remotely due to the pandemic, explaining: “In compliance with local health precautions, we opted to record the songs separately: Cecilia in Monte Carlo and Alison in Nashville.
“Of course, before and after, we got together over video calls several times to optimise the recording and sing “together”, albeit at a distance!”
