Hailing from Sicily, Carlo Barbagallo has released a bonus single, “This Queen” which appears as a ghost track on his latest 2017 album, 9, out via Stereodischi, Noja Records, and Wild Love Records. Barbagallo says of the album: “The meaning of the title 9 could be considered as a measure of time passing, but you could find many other meanings and associations; its shape is a strange loop, not a loop like a 0, not as unlimited as [infinity], yet presents an escape and therefore does not remain within its cycle.” The album was created through Barbagallo’s production accompanied by twenty musicians from around the world.
Along with the release of this track is an accompanying music video directed by Elaine Carmen Bonsangue. “My Queen” is the perfect example of Barbagallo’s inter-genre style. It masterfully combines psychedelic sounds with strings and vocals to create an ethereal listening experience. The music video only serves to further complement the song, full of visual overlays and mystery. Check out “My Queen” by Carlo Barbagallo on Spotify.
