BLANCO the road movie “Bruciasse Il Cielo” arrives on Prime Video

Music news

“Bruciasse Il Cielo” is the title of Blanco’s road movie which retraces, with unreleased content, songs and videos, the artist’s last two years of music and travels.

“BRUCIASSE IL SKY”, – produced by DeAntartica and URUBAMBA STUDIO, co-produced by Illmatic Film Group in association with Except, directed by Simone Peluso – will be available from November 9th exclusively on Prime Video.

In BRUCIASSE IL SKY I try to tell what I am, in my contrasts: from the funniest and lightest part to the most serious, more intimate one, in which I talk about my pains and fears, a bit like I do in my songs.

It is a diary in which I tell the emotion of this race, of these last years, in which I seem to have had very little time to think and in which impulse has often guided me. It contains my very first approaches to music, my first bullshit, my travels, my affections, the desire to share and the fear of loneliness.

I think this road movie represents the closure of something. After this full period I would like to stay still, disappear for a while, because never before have I been aware that I want to make music and that’s it.”

A deep dive into BLANCO’s unfiltered imagination, from the very first appearances on stage to the 35 sold out dates of the first “Blu Celeste” tour, from trips to America to those in Bolivia to conceive his latest album “Innamorato”, from exclusive performances in evocative places in Venice, Florence and Naples to the crowds in the stadiums in summer 2023.


The track of the road movie is the single of the same name “BRUCIASSE IL CIELO”, produced by Michelangelo and available on all digital platforms from Friday 10 November for Island Records. Just under 4 minutes, that’s enough for BLANCO to release all its intensity on the notes of an evocative pop melody, and the burnt sky in the background which becomes a new canvas to shape.

“Bruciasse Il Cielo” is a bit like closing the circle: of this year, of “Innamorato”, of many things that have been part of this incredible journey.

I believe that each album is a photograph of a different moment of life, and this piece celebrates and closes this last phase, leaving the doors open for new paths.

I liked the image of the fire in the sky: “let the sky burn”, a kind of solemn oath, one of those you make with your heart in your hand, to people and in really important situations. And fire is an element that has always fascinated me, a force that yes, destroys, but which lays the foundations to be able to rebuild from scratch.”
