“Nothing is ever planned when I work with Sting.” says Zucchero, “He called me to ask me to write some Italian lyrics for a song that he had just composed. I liked it straightaway, so we decided to work together on this duet. The song talks about and conveys the feeling of the unsettled times we were experiencing during the summer, and expresses our hope to return to normality some time soon. Still today, we continue to hope that this “September” will soon be here.”.
“SEPTEMBER was born as a response to the pandemic”, explains STING, “when all the days were the same and we looked to September as the moment in which it would all be over, when the rain would come and wash everything clean. The song had a very Italian melody to my ears and I thought I would call Zucchero and ask him to wrtie a few verses in Italian and to sing the song with me. We’ve been friends for over 30 years, so it seemed the natural thing to do“.
As well as the single “September”, the album “D.O.C. Deluxe Edition” contains 5 new songs and all the songs from the original album “D.O.C.”.
