Here’s the animated video for the brand new single from Edward Abbiati. ‘Nothing Left to Say’ is delivered with real, explosive rock’n’roll energy – rolling, thundering drums from Mattia Martini drive the song forward, a surging current over which an absorbing melody soars. Abbiati is joined on electric guitar by the highly-regarded Italian Maurizio “Gnola” Glielmo, an experienced performer who is at home on stadium stages like the San Siro; the combination of their guitars is insistent and powerful. Former members of LOWLANDS are joined by a host of other fine musicians, including an additional sonic layer provided by Joey Huffman (Georgia Satellites, Soul Asylum) on the Hammond B3 Organ. The Georgia Hall of Famer helps to create a rich, full sound that is perfect for Abbiati’s gritty, characterful voice.
Abbiati told AUK about the song: “I really wanted to make a fun, colourful and high energy rock record as a reaction to some very difficult years behind us. I also wanted to make a record that would make you move but still look at you right into the eye. This was the final tune written for the record when the band had really come together well. The night we recorded this we were so excited we wanted to release it right away. It’s a first taste but we hope it’ll open the door not only for the record but also for us to come back to the UK for some dates. ‘To The Light’ is proudly released by the renowned and great Italian label, Appaloosa Records, home to esteemed artists like Fabrizio Poggi, Michael McDermott, and the legendary Eric Anderson.”
‘Nothing Left to Say’ is the first single from Abbiati’s forthcoming album ‘To The Light’, due out on 7th October 2023. This was the last song written for the album, but its pounding, driving approach and the fine collaborators make it a great choice to introduce the new collection. ‘To the Light’ will be Abbiati’s second full-length solo release after ten years fronting his band LOWLANDS and then an album with Chris Cacavas, ‘Me and the Devil’. Abbiati’s last album, 2019’s ‘Beat the Night’, had a more acoustic feel but the new electric material is more dynamic, more urgent and makes for a compelling listen. The Hampshire-born Anglo-Italian’s songs blend rock, punk and folk, creating direct, immediate music that sweeps the listener along with it. Check it out.
