According to Leon; “suns and flowers It comes from a very concrete image, when the Mothers entered the former ESMA, they promised to fill that place with suns and flowers to put so much life into a place of so much death. And I always thought about recording it with Lila Downs, because I love her voice, for what she represents and because she knows the pain of her people, ours and all of America. She makes me very happy that she accepted.”

Previous singles

The kick off for León Gieco’s future new album was the theme everything burns (ft. jamie lopez), released on April 7, 2021.

At the time, León said the following: “It is the song that opens the door to an album that we are finishing. I wrote it a little over three years ago, but it retains that unexpected energy with which I encountered a few months ago , recording – isolated and at a distance – an album that was in the plans for 2020 and suddenly began to take shape.While all this is happening, here I am, sitting on my balcony, with the bible and the water heater, the photo of Pugliese and Discépolo, looking Thing everything burns and regretting not singing like Gardel”.

The next cut was Alimentacion.comwith Sergio Araupublished on September 30, 2021.

On the creation of this new song that he began to sketch about two years ago, Gieco told through a press release: “It was one day that I found myself looking for a magnifying glass to be able to read the ingredients on the label of something I had bought and when I started reading familiar elements and even very rare names appeared, which due to their structure also had a rhythmic sense… From there the idea was born to start writing them, group them and obviously over time look for their meaning”.

“If I had to define the song, I’d say it’s food trap rap, fun and problematic,” he added.

On November 19 of last year, on the occasion of his 70th birthday, León released the third single: Friendshipin duet with Gustavo Santaolalla

More songs

Also, apart from these songs anticipating his album, Gieco has released every day a little with Guillermina Beccar Varela (March 15, 2022), two songs with Sergio Reis (Romaria in February this year and a live version of Principe Azzurro three months earlier) and a new version of The Canterville Ghost, on December 3 ’21.

In his own way, without haste and without pausing, occasionally going on stage for charitable purposes (Conduciendo a Conciencia) or to sing with friends (Lisandro Aristimuño), León Gieco approaches the long-awaited release of his next album , dated for 2023 but no specific date.
