ALBERTO RIGONI Releases New Single ‘Ocean Traveler’ from Upcoming Solo Album “Unexpected Lullabies”!

Italian bassist and composer ALBERTO RIGONI has unveiled his new single ‘Ocean Traveler’, the last song composed by Vitalij Kuprij before passing away.

Alberto had this to say; “It’s a very sad story… at the end of January I asked Vitalij Kuprij to compose an instrumental track for my upcoming girl (Vittoria Parini Rigoni – born on March 12th, 2024).. he did this amazing tune, together with guitarist Josh Sapna… and he completed it the day before passing away (February 20th, 2024). I didn’t want to add bass on this masterpiece because it sounds amazing as it is in my opinion. Rest in peace and in power Vitalij! Your music will never die.”

‘Ocean Traveler’ is out now via Sliptrick Records.

Just recently, Alberto released “Strangers In The Night” single and video, a daring reimagining of Frank Sinatra’s classic. This hard rock cover, part of his upcoming album “Unexpected Lullabies,” offers a fresh perspective on a beloved song that has stood the test of time. Featuring the esteemed Göran Edman on vocals (known for his collaborations with Yngwie Malmsteen) and the exceptional talents of Emiliano Tessitore on guitars (notably from Ehfar, Vinnie Moore, and Mark Boals) alongside Emiliano Bonini on drums, this rendition diverges from the original, delivering a captivating journey filled with powerful guitar riffs and vocals that encapsulate the essence of rock.

Featuring a symphony of guest musicians alongside Rigoni’s virtuosic bass, Unexpected Lullabies is poised to be a beacon for lovers of music, an invitation to explore the depths of creativity and emotion. What makes ‘Unexpected Lullabies’ even more exciting is the assembly of musical titans. The album features the legendary bassist Michael Manring, the keyboard wizardry of Alessandro Bertoni (of the Graham Bonnet Band) and Vitalij Kuprij (known for Artension and Trans-Siberian Orchestra), and many more yet-to-be-revealed guest artists.
