Pietro Cottone‘s return this season brings a piano-led ballad of conceptual poignancy that inspiringly rises up into brighter territories as it progresses.
Seemingly hopeless at first with its declarations of division and pain, I Walk You Into The World soon elevates itself with a brighter mood. The lyrics become more focused on empowerment, more optimistic, and the musical layers multiply and grow brighter to reinforce this.
The evolution continues into the uplifting drop that is the hook, wherein passionate vocals promise unity and a better tomorrow.
Emerging complete with a captivating visual story-line, the new single showcases the daily struggle and separation of modern life, but goes on to celebrate our similarities as humans and our shared desire to simply live and enjoy the beauty of the world.
A boldly open and energising new single, a power-ballad of sorts, with that unique Pietro Cottone tone and a fine fusion of pop and rock tendencies – even veering off towards Queen with the final cascading solos and big-band fullness. I Walk You Into The World is beautiful, a fitting, cinematic outro to a story that seemed hopeless but soon revealed itself to be loaded with possibility and lessons.
