After 14 years, Andrea Bocelli is back with an incredible new album of original songs! Contains Sensational Duets With Ed Sheeran, Dua Lipa, Josh Groban, Aida Garifullina and Matteo Bocelli.

Andrea Bocelli's first album of all-new material in 14 years, Si, won't feature his duet with Ed Sheeran on "Perfect Symphony," but it will contain a new track co-written by Sheeran and Tiziano Ferro, "Amo Soltanto Te," as well as duets with Dua Lipa, fellow contemporary classical star Josh Groban and soprano Aida Garifullina.

The 16-track album celebrates "love, family, faith and hope," also features a musical collaboration with Bocceli's 20 year-old son, Matteo Bocelli titled "Fall On Me." It's the end credits song from the upcoming Disney movie The Nutcracker and The Four Realms (Nov. 2), starring Keira Knightley, Mackenzie Foy, Helen Mirren and Morgan Freeman, and is available now.

"Technically they are very different, but there is one thing that makes them most similar: the attitude. That characteristic way of expressing yourself through your voice," Bocelli says of the blending of his voice with his son's. "This makes Matteo and I very similar. But that is something that you cannot learn, that cannot be taught. That is something you are born with."

The album was recorded at Bocelli's home in Italy and produced by the legendary Bob Ezrin (Pink Floyd, Thirty Seconds to Mars) and also features piano playing from Bocelli's other son, Amos, on the acoustic version of "Sono Qui." Describing the mood of the album, Bocelli says in a statement: "I wanted to go back to my memories of being a young man, playing at a piano bar. Obviously since then, I've produced lots of albums, sung lots of covers, performed many other things. But at a certain point I said to myself: 'Maybe the time has come to put my effort into finding new songs.' Like starting all over again, as it were, in my career."
