Five years it has taken Fito Cabrales in finding enough momentum to deliver together with the Fitipaldis'Running away from me', his new album. "The older, the more things hurt", argues the Basque musician about "Nada de nada", one of the new songs, in which he criticizes "injustice, the contrast between what is asked of some people and what others offer and those laws that are only valid for some ».
He adds with amazement that he often hears the message from the corrupt that anyone in his position would have acted the same. "I am reluctant to say that human beings are like those sons of bitches," emphasizes the veteran musician and former member of Platero y Tú. What bothers us, and what 'Nada de nada' is about, is that no politician assumes any responsibility or makes a gesture of apologizing for anything, "he explains.
Some of the simplicity of that live sound has leaked into "Fleeing with me from me," which appears long after "Before I count ten" (2009), an especially long span, even for them. Although he does not consider himself a lazy person, he acknowledges that "the quieter life" he has led lately made him postpone to an unconscious level "the vertigo" of embarking on the development of a new job "and all that it entails." The end of his tour of theaters brought him more free time to open the drawers where he kept "notes, melodies and lyrics" that could become, together with producer Carlos Raya, the new songs of Fito & Fitipaldis.
«I can understand something if I write it down. It seems that it stays stuck there and that then I can see it from the outside, from a different angle ”, he admits about a form of writing that has a lot of miraculous automatism. “When you sing rock and roll on stage, you have to have an 'I can do anything' attitude, although sometimes you don't feel that way. Even if it is not your best night, you have to give it your all and that sometimes surpasses me ", he says about the desire to respond to the expectations of the public, which, in his case, are very high.
This is demonstrated by the relentless success of each of their tours, despite even the 21 percent VAT applied to tickets. More than two months from the date, the full capacity of the concert on December 27 at the Palacio de los Deportes in Madrid was sold out and they decided to call another one the day after. «Compared to what I see in my environment and there, I cannot say that I feel the crisis. I keep playing and I haven't had to lower the blind. The cultural VAT has affected me, because it costs me more money to do what I did before, but I don't want to complain, because I find it selfish. The reality is very different from what happens to me, "he explains. On their return to the big pavilions, which will take place on November 15 at the Palacio de los Deportes in Santander, the band wanted to offer something unprecedented, "give value to the show."
