In 2018, the news appeared that Calamaro, one of the most prolific singer-songwriters in the popular and Spanish language, was preparing an album of duets. Will this be the first hit link?
“I have several albums in my head but there are two that are closer: the waterfall of stars singing with me and the new songs “He said from his Twitter account, @bradpittbull666. “We are in the creative bubble and songs keep coming.”
Regarding the duet album, I had already anticipated the collaborations of specials by León Gieco, Vicentico, the Chilean Mon Laferte and the Uruguayan Fernando Cabrera. Not a word was said about Julio Iglesias. Yet Andrés himself allowed himself to ramble? declaring the desire for them to participate, attenti … Liam Gallagher, Nick Cave y Elvis Costello. “I would be delighted to invite you to sing in two languages for the album of extraordinary collaborations.”

The news took more than one by surprise: Julio Iglesias, really? There is only one song missing with Arjona to complete this 2020. They even sent greetings from Andorra!
For many, duets are to music what film adaptations are to television.. Could it be that innovation is dead? For others, on the other hand, duet discs are variations on the interpretation of songs. As if a drawer of alternative versions were opened that could not see the light without this excuse.
There are also people who imagine shared universes that, otherwise (Calamaro / Iglesias case?) Would be unlikely. What is vulgarly said kill two birds with one shot.
