SANREMO 2024: FRENCH SAINTS: “Love in the mouth” is our little mystery

Music news

“Love in mouth” is the song with which the French Saints will participate in the 74th edition of the Sanremo Festival.

“The love in the mouth” is a little mystery. Born from an improvised session, it presents itself as a sequence of images and sensations without a precise aim or direction, constantly hanging on its title. Romantic and sensual at the same time, “love in the mouth” is the expression (born from a writing error) around which we and Cecilia Del Bono have told moments of our respective private lives, without indulging in too many explanations, and that is why the nature of this song remains hidden, buried under layers of allegory, even from ourselves.


You left me with love in my mouth/without doing it on purpose/it’s the last drops of rain/let’s slide over roofs before falling to pieces/I’ll ​​leave my clothes on the street/it will seem strange to you/following a thread of wool
