The singer is eager to promote his new work through #LAGIRA, which will arrive in El Paso
Mexico City – Alejandro Sanz is very willing to relaunch #LAGIRA from his album “#ELDISCO”, which was suspended due to the pandemic and will resume release in the United States at the end of this year.
“You have to start the locomotive because the train does not go alone. I think one of the symptoms of recovery is to start working,” Sands said in a recent telephone interview in Madrid. “I want to use a bargaining chip to eat that scene.”
The Spanish singer and lyricist stated that he needs to feel the atmosphere of the fans and share it with the musicians again. He will perform in Los Angeles, Miami, New York and Houston in October. Tickets are now on sale on its website and Ticketmaster.
Although he has not yet been vaccinated against the coronavirus, Sands said he is no longer as afraid of Covid-19 as he had to return to Madrid during the pandemic last year.
“Last spring, I got this disease very early. Since then, I have had antibodies for many months. Then I lost them, and now I find them back. They just told me that I might Contact with the virus,” he explained. “I have a fixed time, which made me suffer a bit, but once I passed that moment, the fear disappeared.”
For musicians, the challenge now is not to be overconfident and follow health and safety guidelines.
He said: “I think, in general, masks are a good idea.” “All hygiene measures apply to the coronavirus, but they also apply to normal conditions. Washing hands is indeed a highly recommended habit.”
Nothing can stop it
When #LAGIRA was interrupted, Sands tried creative formats that he had never experienced before, such as a virtual concert with Juanes #LaGiraSeQuedaEnCasa, which was broadcast live on YouTube.
He also filmed the documentary “The Outside World” (currently available on Amazon Prime Video), for which he invited thousands of fans to send him images about their experiences in the pandemic. This emotional movie shows people’s different views on this unfamiliar moment, their views on the future and the lessons learned from this global crisis.
Sands said: “It’s so beautiful to see how everyone faces different things, but from a deep level, each of us has emotions on the surface. The people’s response is incredible. We sent more than 4,000 videos”.
For him, the most valuable thing about the pandemic is being able to feel the connection between the artist and the audience, despite the distance.
He said: “I think it’s worth it, it’s nothing more than that alliance.” “I think music is rising more than ever, and it may be much more than other guilds that should have risen, such as political guilds. When they should be used as solutions, they have become problems.”
