Legendary Italian progressive rock band Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso has shared a new song ("La Pianura Rossa"), off its upcoming album "Orlando: Le Forme dell’Amore", which will be released on 23rd September 2022 via InsideOut Music. Below you can watch the music video.
Coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the release of the band's self-titled debut album, founding member/keyboardist Vittorio Nocenzi has been working on this new album’s musical concept for years together with his son Michelangelo and lyricist Paolo Logli. The Italian proggers narrate a real 16th century poem by Ludovico Ariosto through different songs. Nocenzi said: "The Orlando Furioso poem is such a marvellous book that has been written some 500 years but yet it is so modern. We choose to shoot the video in the beautiful Palazzo Chigi’s Parkin Ariccia (near Rome), such a perfect location for the narration of stories of princesses, knights, weapons, and love! ... For the shooting we opted for a XVIII aviary because of its own architecture reminding of castles and legends from the past. Most definitely the best possible location for our album Orlando - The Shapes of Love. This is a song that perfectly describes Banco’s electric energy and I’m confident this one song would become a band’s classic tune loved by fans".
